I Scream, You Scream, We All Scream for Popsicles

Summer is on its way, which means it’s almost time to sit on the porch with my daughter and enjoy an afternoon popsicle together. Being a bit of a health nut, I’d rather not give her frozen sugar water on a stick as a snack. But I’m also not about to deny her one of the simple pleasures of summertime. Luckily, there’s no rule saying popsicles can’t be healthy as well as fun! When you make your popsicles with Complete by Juice Plus, each one will be full of protein, fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants.

Here are three Juice Plus+ popsicle recipes we’ll be making before summer’s over. (Pro tip: You can also serve these as a healthy breakfast treat!)

Red, White, and Blue Popsicles
Makes 6 popsicles

These patriotic pops would be fun for a Memorial Day or 4th of July gathering. The trick to keeping the fruit suspended in the yogurt is to mix Complete by Juice Plus+ in by hand, rather than using a blender. This makes a thicker base that keeps the pieces of fruit spread throughout the popsicle. It also reduces the yield when compared to other recipes, as the yogurt is more dense.

  • 2 scoops (1/2 cup) French Vanilla Complete by Juice Plus+ shake mix
  • 2 cups plain yogurt (for a vegan version, try coconut, almond, cashew, or pea protein yogurt)
  • 1 cup strawberries, chopped into small pieces
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • Optional: For extra sweetness, you can add a dollop of honey or a pinch of stevia

Mix Complete into the yogurt with a fork. Then fold the berries into the mixture and pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least three hours.

Peaches and Cream Popsicles
Makes 12 popsicles

In the summer when fresh, juicy peaches are available at the farmers’ market, it can be hard not to go overboard and buy more than you can store in your fridge. (Or is that just me?) Either way, these peaches and cream popsicles are full of fresh peach flavor.

  • 2 scoops (1/2 cup) French Vanilla Complete by Juice Plus+ shake mix
  • 1 1/2 cups plain yogurt (for a vegan version, try coconut, almond, cashew, or pea protein yogurt)
  • ½ cup peach juice
  • 2 cups fresh peaches, chopped
  • Optional: For extra sweetness, you can add a dollop of honey or a pinch of stevia

Mix all ingredients in a blender and pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least three hours.

Mocha-Almond Popsicles
Makes 8 popsicles

This is more of a grown-up treat, unless your little ones like coffee ice cream, in which case be sure to use decaf coffee!

  • 2 scoops Dutch Chocolate Complete by Juice Plus+ shake mix
  • 1/2 cup milk or your favorite milk substitute (almond, coconut, hemp or cashew milk)
  • 1 1/2 cups brewed coffee
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup almond butter
  • Optional: For extra sweetness, you can add a dollop of honey or a pinch of stevia

Mix all ingredients in a blender and pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for at least three hours.
