  • Popsicle ideas?

    I fell for a homemade popsicle mold set at the grocery store yesterday. It makes 6 4 oz (125 mls) popsicles. The recipes that come on the box are not at all primal, and certainly not Whole30, which I'm doing at the moment, so I need other ideas.

    Tonight's inaugural creation was blended fresh local strawberries, a few frozen blueberries, an avocado and half a can of coconut milk and about a tsp of honey. Made 5 popsicles. I'll try them tomorrow when they're frozen.

    Anyone have any other non-dairy, primal-compliant recipes/ideas for popsicles?

    I seem to remember juice in moderation was okay on W30 (am I right?). I usually just use juice. Bolthouse Farms makes an orange juice from fruit concentrate (no HFCS or weird stuff) called C-Boost. It's delicious.

      I make them for my kids almost everyday and usually just use whatever fruit I have around and some keifer (can't use on whole 30).

          we love the avocado fat, we throw flowers at them, we thank mother nature for them, etc.

            Yeah, I want these popsicles to have some fat content for satiety, not just sugar content from fruit or juices. More of the creamsicle idea, but without dairy. I love the choc/banana/avocado idea.

            Anyone tried freezing a smoothie with pureed spinach or kale?

              these might brown, but i've heard that a combination of overripe bananas and avocados makes a lovely frozen treat. usually when we make smoothies, we use the overripe bananas as a sweetener.

                  I make lots of popsicles for my kids. I don't use juice, only whole blended in a food processor with coconut milk (that way they get the fiber too and not a sugar rush). Sometimes I add a little protein powder too. So basically they get a good fat-carb ratio and it's a nice snack or supplement to breakfast. Some favorite combos:

                  Banana-blueberry-coconut milk
                  Mango-pineapple-coconut milk
                  Mango-banana-coconut milk
                  Mango-blueberry-coconut milk
                  Mango-strawberry-coconut milk

                  (We do Trader Joe's frozen fruit and my kids love the mango...)

                    These "Flavor Cubes" started out as a way to make water more interesting for my family, then they became easy go-to's for quick slushies, smoothies, meal replacements, and in the case of the grandkids 'popsi-cubes', we use them for everything and have a huge variety now.

                    Easy to make~
                    Blend fruit OR veggies OR Both in a processor with a small amount of purified water (stevia is optional for sweeter) then pour into ice trays and freeze.

                    We have
                    Beet-raspberries
                    blackberry-celery
                    tomato-strawberry
                    orange-ginger
                    pineapple-mint
                    coconut cream
                    avocado
                    kiwi
                    blueberry
                    coffee for frapps
                    coconut-pineapple

                    the choices are endless

                      2 Ripe bananas, 1 can coconut cream (without added sugar), vanilla (optional). Blend with stick mixer. Have also added a teaspoon of cocoa powder to this. Makes 5 iceblocks.

                        I just made my second foray into popsicles. 3 over-ripe bananas, half can coconut milk, about 1/2 tbsp cocoa, about 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Made 3 popsicles (4 oz each). From the non-frozen taste I had of the blender contents, they will be yummy!
