With summer 2020 gearing up in full heat, it’s time to start bringing out the summer recipes! I’ll be doing a whole series of these so stay tuned! Here are my top 5 healthy + refreshing summer popsicle recipes!

Growing up, popsicles were my lifeblood during summer. I was constantly slurping up those tubed ones like they were water. Sadly, as I’ve gotten older and have started becoming more health conscious, I’ve obviously realized most of the popsicles I grew up with are a little too high in sugar (… okay, a lot…) 

After lots of fun trial and error, these are my favorite healthy & refreshing popsicle recipes! They are lightly sweetened with Monk Fruit (non-sugar 0 calorie natural sweetner alternative!), but don’t worry, the flavors are so perfect that you won’t miss the extra sugar. I made these with Almond Milk but feel free to use any milk of your choosing.

And can we talk about these no-mess popsicle holders?! They have built in straws so you can sip as your popsicle melts! Game. Changers. If you’re looking for no-mess treats, check out my No-Mess S’mores hack!

Chai Teasicle

Yes, you read that correctly. Chai Tea Popsicles! Sadly my stomach can’t (literally) stomach coffee, so caffeinated tea is my morning boost, but that doesn’t mean you can’t add a little milk to make this a latte! 

Good Earth Teasicle 

healthy refreshing summer popsicle good earth tea

If you haven’t had the heaven-on-earth pleasure of drinking Good Earth Tea, you have not truly lived. Their Sweet & Spicy flavor is by far my #1 favorite tea of ALL TIME. If you like sweet orange & cinnamon, this is teasicle for you! I have a total sweet tooth and this is often my post meal healthy treat. It comes in both (black tea) caffeinated and non-caffeinated versions for you to choose from. 

Apple Cinnamon Refresher

This one is so simple, yet so incredibly tasty. Get yourself some Unsweetened Organic Applesauce and throw in a little cinnamon & you’ve got yourself a delicious fruity popsicle. Coming in at only 70 calories for 1/2 cup of applesauce this popsicle is the perfect healthy + refreshing summer popsicle. No need to add monk fruit to this one.

Mexican Watermelon 

If you know me, you know I am obsessed with Tajin (the BEST Mexican Chilli-Lime seasoning that can literally go on anything! It’s not spicy btw, I’m a sad Mexican who can’t handle her spice). Naturally, I found a way to incorporate Tajin into my icy treats! This one also doesn’t require Monk fruit!

Horchata / Rice Pudding Popcicle 

My second favorite Mexican popsicle! This rice milk, cinnamon-y treat goes perfectly as a healthy dessert alternative.

    Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old
    daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
    is completely off topic but I had to tell someone! http://www.deinformedvoters.org/hydroxychloroquine
