Yummy All-Natural Popsicle Recipe

For us, sunny weather means one thing…popsicles.

While we’re not quite at summer weather just yet, we’ve had a few warm days in April in New York and now that it’s May, we think it can only go up from here.

One of the great thing about warm weather is the farmer’s markets that start popping up around the neighborhoods, which means options for plenty of fresh fruit and other natural produce.

With these two things in mind, we figured it was the perfect time to share one of our favorite recipes: natural homemade popsicles. Simple, fun, and a great way to get a few extra vitamins in!

You’ll only need a few things:

  • Greek yogurt
  • honey
  • fruit
  • icing bags
  • popsicle sticks and molds

All-Natural Popsicle Recipe

Cut up your fruit into small bite-size pieces, arrange them on a baking sheet, and pop them in the freezer until cooked through.

Start to create the mixture by measuring out 500g of plain Greek yogurt and mixing it with 4 tsp of honey (you can also substitute syrup for honey).

Place the mixture in a blender along with the frozen fruit and blend until smooth. If it becomes too sticky, pour a splash of almond or whole milk in the blender to loosen it up. Because the sweetness varies for different fruits, taste for sweetness here, and add another teaspoon or two of honey if desired.

Once the mixture is ready, spoon them (or pipe them) into the ice molds overnight, or check back in 3-4 hours.

The cool thing about these popsicles is that you can play around with different fruits and even vegetables (gasp) for different flavors as you start to get the hang of it.

Unicorn-inspired popsicles

If you’re feeling very creative and loved the super colorful unicorn cake phase, consider the unicorn-inspired version from Eats Amazing blog.

You’ll need the same base ingredients, but 200g each of blueberries and pineapples, as well as a combined 200g of strawberries and raspberries.

Mix 250g of the Greek yogurt with one tsp of honey, scoop into a piping back and set in the freezer until ready to use.

Split the remaining bit of Greek yogurt into thirds and add the individual groups of fruit to each one, resulting in purplish-blue, yellow, and pink colors. Add 1 tsp of honey to each mixture, scoop into separate piping bags and pop in the freezer until cool.

Once the mixtures are cool, alternate piping different colors/flavors into the popsicle molds and freeze as explained above.

It’s a little more involved, but you’re rewarded with beautiful results.
