Easy 4 ingredient Raspberry Popsicles are here, just in time for summer! These healthy popsicles are creamy, refreshing, and naturally sweetened. With summer just around the corner, we all need to have a healthy and simple recipe to keep us feeling cool. These homemade fruit popsicles are bound to do just that on a hot day!
how to make healthy popsicles
When making these raspberry popsicles you will need a popsicle mould (which are quite affordable) and a high-speed blender. You start by adding the coconut milk and the dates (pits removed) to the blender. Once the dates are mostly broken down, add the frozen raspberries and the vanilla. Blend this mixture until it’s smooth. Then you transfer the raspberry mixture into 4 popsicle moulds, filling them close to the top.
These healthy popsicles need to freeze for at least 3 hours and then they are ready to enjoy! I suggest letting them sit out for a few minutes to soften up a little, but it’s not necessary. The process is super easy and straightforward and these popsicles are way healthier than any you will find at the grocery store.
These homemade fruit popsicles are such an easy dessert to have on hand. Either for a hot day or just when you want something to satisfy your sweet tooth. They only take 3 hours to set, so you can make them in the morning and they will be ready for the hot afternoon. These vegan popsicles are simply sweetened with raspberries and a few dates, no added weird stuff- so that’s a win!
These ice-cold treats remind me of a raspberry creamsicle. You know those yummy popsicles you’d get at the gas station (back in the day) that are more creamy than icy? Well, the coconut milk in these healthy popsicles adds a lovely smooth creaminess without being an overbearing flavour. Side note, before the popsicle mixture is frozen, it makes for a pretty yummy smoothie. I may have been caught licking the blender to get every last drop of the mixture. But I mean, I didn’t want anything to go to waste right?
here are some reasons why I love these raspberry popsicles, so listen up!
- These vegan popsicles only require 4 ingredients to make. An added bonus is that this recipe is completely refined-sugar free! The raspberries and dates are what sweeten the popsicles. So this frozen treat is completely guilt-free! They will make your tongue super red and it will make you feel like a kid again. But watch out for the red moustache, cause let’s be honest, that is never fun at any age.
- These vegan popsicles are quick and easy to throw together. The waiting time is the tough part, but save a few drops of the blended mixture and sip on that while you wait! You will need to invest in a popsicle mould but they are super affordable if you are buying the plastic kind and you can find them at most grocery stores, online or at home stores. If you want a more sustainable mould, there are stainless steel ones out there but they are pricier. Either way, they are a good little tool to have on hand. For the mom’s out there, this is a simple recipe that would be fun to make with the kiddos!
- There are no questionable ingredients in these raspberry popsicles. Safe, healthy, and delicious. #winning. I’m a total sucker for any recipe that is refined-sugar free. I still indulge in coconut sugar and maple syrup but when recipes are sweetened with just fruit, I find nothing sits weird with my stomach. These healthy popsicles are light yet creamy and super refreshing.
These sweet little raspberry vegan popsicles are dreamy to the max. They truly are the perfect summer treat as they are easy to throw together, thirst-quenching, and naturally sweetened. It’s so nice getting home from the beach knowing that there is a refreshing treat just waiting for you in the freezer. This recipe only makes 4 popsicles so if you know your family will gobble them all up in one day, just double the recipe. These raspberry popsicles are sure to save your butt when that summer heatwave comes.
