Superfood Popsicles

I love to cool down on hot summer days with frozen treats like popsicles, but don’t buy most store-bought versions anymore because they are packed with tons of added sugar, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colors, thickeners and fake flavors. I ate a TON of Bomb Pops when I was a kid… no wonder I had so many stomach aches back then! (FYI –Cellulose Gum has been linked to a variety of health issues – including intestinal inflammation).

Don’t waste your money on boxes full of chemicals like this, when it’s super easy to make frozen treats with healthy ingredients… even SUPERFOODS! 

Superfood Pop #1: Pineapple Ginger Pops

Featuring Superfood Ginger!

Food Babe’s Pineapple Ginger Pops

  • 1 cup chopped pineapple
  • 1 teaspoon grated ginger, more as desired
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1-2 teaspoons raw honey (optional)
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender and blend to combine.
  2. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.

**Please use all organic ingredients if possible**

Superfood Pop #2: Sweet Green Pops 

Featuring Superfood Kale!

Kale has super strength powers in fighting cancer and is considered the world’s number one superfood. Kale is talented and helps to strip the liver of toxic wrongdoers and kick out carcinogens from your blood. Also – you don’t need to wear fancy goggles to get razor sharp vision – Just eat kale, it has twice as much Vitamin A than a carrot.

Food Babe’s Sweet Green Pops

  • 1 apple, cored
  • 2 cups kale
  • 1 cucumber
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a juicer, except the lemon juice. Add the lemon juice to the glass and stir to combine. If you do not have a juicer, you can use a blender and strain the liquid through a fine mesh strainer or cheesecloth.
  2. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and place in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.

**Please use all organic ingredients if possible** See my recommended juicers here.

Superfood Pop #3: Peach Pie Pops

Featuring Superfood Chia Seeds!

Chia seeds can grow 10 times their weight in size when combined with liquid which helps the body stay hydrated while fighting villains. The word “chia” comes from the Aztec word that means “oily”– The oils found in this small little round seed is the secret to its health benefits. Having the most content of omega 3 fatty acids of any plant food – they fight inflammation in the body reducing the chance for heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and depression.

Food Babe’s Peach Pie Pops

  • 1 cup peaches, peeled and chopped
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3-4 tablespoons maple syrup
  • ¼ cup granola of choice
  1. Place all of the ingredients in a blender except the granola and blend to combine.
  2. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds leaving a little space on the top to add a tablespoon of granola to each. Place in the freezer for at least 2 hours or overnight.

**Please use all organic ingredients if possible**
I like to use my own homemade granola for this, get the recipe here.
