How to Make a Healthy Homemade Popsicle

Cut up fruit freezed into popsicles on a stick

Nothing keeps you cool and satisfies that sweet tooth like a delicious frozen popsicle. This icy treat is a summer mainstay, but with loads of sugar and artificial ingredients, store-bought popsicles may not be the route to go for a cool treat. Luckily, popsicles are a breeze to make from scratch with quality ingredients, whole fruits and nutritious add-ins…all things you can find from Simple Truth®.

Break the mold. Don’t have a popsicle mold? No problem! Small paper cups are perfect substitutes. Simply pour in your mixture, cover with plastic wrap, poke a hole in the center of the wrap and push a wooden popsicle stick through the hole. Once your popsicle is nice and frozen, tear away the cup and voila!

Consider the “glue.” What holds a popsicle together? Usually sugar-laden water with artificial flavors and dyes. For a better alternative, try a juice-based popsicle using Simple Truth™ Black Cherry or Pomegranate 100% Juice.

Fixin’ for some mix-ins. Give your popsicles an extra boost with frozen fruit. Toss in some frozen Simple Truth Organic™ Berry Medley or Mango Chunks to add antioxidants and extra flavor to your treat.

Pretty simple, right? Once you and your family start experimenting with all the fun flavors, fruits and frozen options, you’ll never go back to store-bought popsicles again!
