Vegan Popsicles for Summer

Prep Time: 5-10 minutes

It's summer again and the heat is hitting hard (in some parts of the country, anyway). One of our favorite treats around here is a good, old-fashioned popsicle. What better way to cool down than with something frozen?

Popsicles are so easy to make that there is no excuse not to have them in the freezer at all times. You have a few options here. You can use molds or squeeze pop molds or you can just make your own with a paper cup and popsicle sticks. It's completely up to you.

Popicle Recipes

The easiest way to make a quick popsicle is to use your kids' favorite fruit juices. I like to mix a couple together, but you can easily just dump 100% orange juice into the molds and freeze them. Nice and simple. If you want to get more creative, however, here are a few other ideas. 

Creamy Orange Avocado Pops

These creamy, citrusy treats are crazy healthy for you and they taste great, too! This recipe makes 8-10 popsicles, depending on mold size.

2 avocados 1 c. orange juice 1/2 c. coconut cream 1 Tblsp. vanilla extract

Blend the flesh of the avocados with the remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour into the popsicle molds and freeze. You can add a sweetener if you prefer.

Peaches and Cream Pops

Who doesn't love this flavor combo? When the cream comes from a coconut, it's a vegan paradise! This recipe makes 10-12 popsicles.

1 can coconut milk 2 c.  frozen peaches, cut into chunks sweetener of your choice, to taste 1 tsp. cinnamon

 Mix the coconut milk, cinnamon and sweetener until smooth. Divide the pieces of frozen peaches into the molds and then pour the milk mixture over them. Add sticks and freeze.

Peanut Butter and Banana Popsicles

This classic combination works really well for frozen treats. You can even dip these in hard shell chocolate sauce for a really delicious dessert. Makes 8-10 popsicles.

1 c. peanut butter 1/4 c. stevia or other sweetener  2 bananas 1 c. coconut milk

Blend everything together and pour into the molds. Freeze. If desired, dip in chocolate and crushed peanuts.

    Voted. Wow, some really mouthwatering recipes here! We are getting a heatwave in Britain too, so I must try these, just the thing to cool down (and very good for you too!) If you make your own moulds from a paper cup, do you have to wait until the popsicle is half-frozen before putting the stick in? Otherwise I guess it won't stay in! You might like my latest recipe, Summer Noodle Surprise, please check it out if you have time. :-)

      I actually just let the popsicle stick lean . . . I'm not too picky about it. If you want a straight stick, you can either put it in when the mixture is half frozen (I would never remember, though!) or you can lay two wooden spoons across a row of cups to hold the sticks upright.
