Refreshing popsicles are as much a part of Summer as bathing suits and outdoor barbecues, but they’re not exactly healthy — at least not the ones you can pick up from any store or ice cream truck, as tempting as they may be. The good news? With just a few simple ingredients like berries, oranges, yogurt, and coconut milk, you can make your own fruity, healthy popsicles in the comfort of your own home. We’ve rounded up seven fruity recipes made with all-natural ingredients instead of sweeteners. Some even call for ingredients like veggies and chia seeds — but we won’t tell if you don’t.
These creamy, fruity treats are even Paleo-friendly. Coconut, matcha, and blueberry serve as the base of the popsicle, while a sprinkle of dried blueberries adds a pop of color.

Fruity Chia Seed Coconut Popsicles
These fruit and coconut popsicles may look pretty, but they’re pretty good for you, too. Berries are always a healthy choice, and chia seeds are rich in
omega-3 fatty acids, fiber, and antioxidants.

Strawberry Popsicle With Kale and Squash
If you can hide veggies in smoothies, why not in healthy popsicles, too? The veggies in these strawberry-based treats add nutrients, but you’ll never even notice they’re there.

Mandarin Orange Cream Popsicles
Most fruit popsicles are made with berries, but these citrusy popsicles take things in a totally different direction. They’re made with yogurt, oranges, and granola, so you could technically eat one for breakfast.
