You think “Oh man that’s exactly what I need. A nice, cold popsicle. I’ll instantly feel so much better.”

… But goals, you have body goals and you don’t want to fall off track.

Well, guess what? You can have a nice, cold popsicle without going off plan!

Aside from the ingredients, the only thing you really need are popsicle molds.

They make them look pretty, like actual store bought popsicles, vs if you were to just throw it in a cup or something.

They also ensure you have the perfect portion.

Popsicle molds are super cheap, so there’s really no reason not to have one. Trust me, you’ll get a ton of use out of them– especially if you have kids!

 

How to Make Healthy Homemade Popsicles

Homemade popsicles are probably one of the easiest things you’ll ever make.

All it comes down to is picking your favorite fruit combinations then chopping those fruits up. Once they’re chopped up, you throw them in to your popsicle mold and add your liquid of choice. It can be almond milk, coconut milk, coconut water, natural juices- whatever you like!

Then you freeze it until it’s ready to eat!

It really is that simple! If you need some combination ideas, though, I’ve posted some of my favorite homemade fruit popsicle recipes below. Enjoy 🙂
