Summer is here and it’s time for all the popsicles!

Homemade popsicles are a summer staple at our house. I love that they’re a healthy option, made from fruit (and sometimes veggies, too!), and don’t have any added refined sugars or dyes. They’re a snack I feel good about eating any time of day! (And we’ve literally eaten them ANY time of day.)

That’s the beauty of a good homemade popsicle recipe–the ingredient list is so great you could eat them for breakfast just as easily as afternoon snack. To get you started, I’m sharing some of our favorite healthy popsicle recipes today. Here are some of our favorites…

But First: Need a Popsicle Mold? Here’s Our Favorite…

We’ve tried a LOT of popsicle molds over the years, but THIS POPSICLE MOLD is the one we love the most. It’s the BEST popsicle mold for homemade popsicles! It has 10 slots, a lid to hold the sticks in place, and stays upright well in the freezer. It’ll also last you YEARS. We’ve literally made hundreds of popsicles in ours over the last 6 years, and it’s still going strong!

1. Strawberry Watermelon Popsicles

3 ingredients, 100% fruit, and our family favorite. These are a great way to use up leftover watermelon (or a watermelon that wasn’t as good as you thought it’d be). My kids love helping with these and we almost always go back for seconds!

Lava Flow Popsicles - Healthy homemade popsicles! These are vegan, paleo, and naturally sweetened. We love them!

2. Lava Flow Popsicles

These might just win the award for prettiest. With a creamy coconut-pineapple layer swirled with fresh strawberry, these lava flow popsicles taste like an island vacation! (Plus, they look fancy, but they’re SO EASY!)

Vegan & Paleo DOLE WHIP Popsicles - 3 ingredients, naturally sweetened, and SO GOOD!

3. Dole Whip Popsicles

Inspired by one of our favorite Disneyland treats, these healthy Dole Whip Popsicles taste like a bite of summer sunshine! The ingredient list is short & sweet and the flavor is perfectly satisfying. You’ll love them!

4. Healthy Chocolate Peanut Butter Popsicles

Creamy, chocolatey, peanut buttery goodness! These healthy chocolate peanut butter popsicles have delicious, rich chocolate peanut butter flavor and are made from healthy ingredients. You can serve them plain, or try one of our yummy topping combinations to make them something extra-special. (My favorite is peanut butter + crushed peanuts. My kids’ favorite is chocolate shell + mini chocolate chips)

8. Healthy Chocolate Covered Bananas

If you’re looking for a frozen treat that *doesn’t* involve a popsicle mold, these tasty chocolate dipped bananas are a great way to go! They’re a brilliant way to use ripe bananas, and the toppings make them SO much fun! keep things simple with a dip and drizzle of our vegan magic chocolate shell, or choose from our giant list of toppings to try. (Sprinkles are always a hit with my kids, while Michael and I LOVE the pistachio!)

Virgin Blackberry Mojito Popsicles - These are AMAZING! Naturally sweetened, tangy, and delicious! (You can also make them with raspberries)

9. Virgin Blackberry Mojito Popsicles

Blackberries are Milo’s favorite, so last year we pulled these healthy blackberry popsicles together. Plenty of fresh berry flavor, a little lime, and the tiniest hint of mint. My kids generally HATE mint, but gobble these right up. (PS – not into blackberries? You can totally make these with strawberries or raspberries instead.)

Strawberry Balsamic Popsicles // One Lovely Life

10. Strawberry Balsamic Popsicles

Don’t panic! These do NOT taste like balsamic vinegar or salad dressing. Pinky promise. Instead, the *tiny* drop of balsamic brings out all that fresh strawberry flavor in the most amazing way. My kids love these, adults love these, you’ll love these.

Paleo & Vegan Raspberry Sorbet Popsicles on a baking sheet, drizzled with chocolate shell and sprinkled with mini chocolate chips, chopped pistachios, and freeze dried raspberries

11. Healthy Raspberry Sorbet Popsicles

These gorgeous homemade raspberry popsicles have the MOST delicious, intense fresh raspberry flavor. The popsicles themselves have just 2 (100% fruit!) ingredients, and the optional chocolate shell only has another 2 ingredients. They’re paleo, vegan, and allergy friendly, but taste like a scoop of the best raspberry sorbet you’ve ever tasted.

Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles from One Lovely Life

12. Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles

These taste like a glass of delicious strawberry lemonade (or those yummy strawberry lemonade ices you can buy sometimes!). My kids love the sweet-tart flavor and happy color.

Mango Lime Popsicles // One Lovely Life

13. Mango Lime Popsicles

Even if your kids aren’t into green foods, they’ll likely go for these mango lime popsicles! (Limes = green, right?). Just a few ingredients and these are bound to be a favorite!

Homemade Peach and Raspberry popsicles. These are as yummy as they are pretty! (Gluten free & Vegan)

14. Raspberry Peach Popsicles

Another delicious swirled popsicle, this one has layers of creamy peach and refreshing raspberry. So easy, so delicious. (And did I mention pretty? Because WOW!)

Cream, dreamy, and delicious! These Healthy Homemade Fudgecicles are everything good! The perfect paleo or vegan treat for warm weather!

A creamy chocolate popsicle was always one of my favorites growing up. These healthy homemade popsicles don’t use any added sweetener, yet somehow they taste a WHOLE lot like chocolate ice cream. Count me in!

Paleo or Vegan Coconut Lime Popsicles - Dairy free, naturally sweetened, and so delicious! The perfect healthy popsicle recipe.

16. Lime in the Coconut Popsicles

Okay, so the name *might* get that song stuck in your head, but you won’t even mind when you’re eating these coconut lime popsicles. Creamy, dreamy, delicious! (And there are only 3 ingredients!)

Superfood Mixed Berry Popsicles - These smoothie popsicles are on repeat all year round. My kids LOVE them!

17. Superfood Very Berry Popsicles

Sneaky sneaky! These berry popsicles are also hiding a few secret doses of super foods! We love how bright and fresh they taste. Yum!SaveSave
