Who doesn’t love a good popsicle? They’re the sweet, cold treats that get us through a hot summer day and remind us of when we were kids chasing after the ice cream truck. But the sugars and generally bad-for-you-stuff in them? Not so much. We’ve put together five healthy popsicle recipes, each with six ingredients or less, that’ll cool you off and leave you full of energy!

Chunky Monkey Pops

Protein is an essential part of a healthy diet. Luckily, we’ve got a protein-packed pop that will keep you feeling good! The Chunky Monkey also contains cinnamon, which is rich in antioxidants, is anti-inflammatory, and lowers blood sugar. 


Makes: 3 - 4 Pops

Ingredients:

  • 1 banana, sliced
  • 3/4 cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk
  • 2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp. honey

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, mash the banana until it is smooth.
  2. Add the peanut butter, milk, cinnamon, and honey. Stir until blended together.
  3. Add to your popsicles molds and freeze for at least 6 hours.
  4. Pop out and enjoy!
Red Berry and Basil Pops

Did you know that strawberries contain more vitamin C than oranges? Strawberries and raspberries are superfoods, filled with beneficial antioxidants. This popsicle has them both, plus basil, which has been shown to reduce inflammation and have anti-aging properties.


Makes: 3 - 4 Pops

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup strawberries
  • 1/4 cup raspberry
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 4 medium basil leaves, minced
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp honey

Directions:

  1. Dice the strawberries and raspberries so that they are the size of the tip of your pinky.
  2. Add berries to a medium bowl along with the minced basil. For a smoother pop, put all of the above ingredients in a blender or food processor.
  3. Add the coconut milk, lemon juice, and honey. Stir.
  4. Add to your popsicles molds and freeze for at least 6 hours.
  5. Pop out and enjoy!
Green Tea Energizer Pops

Green tea is one of the best drinks you could possibly have for your body, with antioxidants and nutrients perfect for the sunny days of summer (and combating sunburn when you forget to reapply your SPF). It can also improve brain function and lower your risk for diseases like cancer. We all know to drink it, but have you ever tried green tea frozen? Well, it’s time to with our Green Tea Energizer Pops! Plus, the added lemon and orange provide a citrus boost that will keep you energized and refreshed all day.


Makes: 3 - 4 Pops

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups green tea
  • Lemon juice from 1 lemon
  • Orange juice from 1 orange
  • 2 tbsp. honey

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, add all ingredients and stir.
  2. Add to your popsicles molds and freeze for at least 6 hours.
  3. Pop out and enjoy!
Tropical Pops

Want to feel like you’re sitting on a beach in the Bahamas even if it’s just a rooftop in Brooklyn? Look no further than these tropical tasting pops. Mangoes pose tons of health benefits, including supporting better digestion and lowering cholesterol, while pineapple is a great source of dietary fiber and vitamin C.


Makes: 4 - 5 Pops

Ingredients:

  • 1 mango, cubed
  • 1/2 a pineapple, cubed
  • 1 cup coconut milk
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, add the mango and pineapple and mash them so they are broken down. Put the fruit in a blender or food processor to get a smoother consistency.
  2. Add the shredded coconut and coconut milk and blend until incorporated.
  3. Add to your popsicles molds and freeze for at least 6 hours.
  4. Pop out and enjoy!

Fudgesicles

Chocolate and healthy don’t really go together, do they? Actually, they do! Dark chocolate is beneficial for your heart health and blood sugar levels all on its own. Plus, we added healthy fats like avocado to this recipe instead of the typical cream, making these pops as healthy as can be.


Makes: 4 - 5 Pops

Ingredients:

  • 1 diced avocado
  • 1 bar of melted dark chocolate
  • 1 Tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 1 cup almond or coconut milk

Directions:

  1. In a medium bowl, mash the avocado until it looks like a cream. For a smoother pop, put the avocado in a food processor or blender.
  2. Add in the melted chocolate and cocoa powder and stir until even.
  3. Add the coconut milk and stir.
  4. Add to your popsicles molds and freeze for at least 6 hours.
  5. Pop out and enjoy!
