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).
coconut milk, avocado, banana, cocoa.
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.
blend mango, coconut milk and stevia, then freeze...
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:
(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.
coffee for frapps
the choices are endless:)
