Popsicles have a sort of nostalgic quality about them for many of us. We grow up with them in our schools, homes, and lets not forget, the ice cream trucks!
If you’re now an adult and still love a great popsicle, I’ve got you covered. For those of you who have kids, I hope you’ll make precious new memories making some of these together.

This delicious and nutritious recipe from Jessica Gavin creates this tasty treat with only 5 wholesome ingredients or less!
You can even tailor this to your own tastebuds using your choice of fruits. Sounds like fun to me!

Which One Of These Healthy Homemade Popsicle Recipes Is Your Favorite?
Hi, friend. I hope you have enjoyed reading this as much as I have enjoyed putting it all together for you!
I’m a big believer in enjoying life. Restrictive fad diets (when medically unnecessary) and guilt pangs from eating food you love aren’t my idea of fully living.
I do however believe in living well by feeding our bodies what they need to thrive. Turning sugar-filled favorites into healthy and delicious treats simply makes me excited.
You can have your popsicle and eat it too. Oh wait, that’s not how the saying goes. Oh well, you know what I mean!
Now I’m curious, which of these healthy homemade popsicle recipes are your favorite? Will you be making any of them?
I can’t wait to hear from you! Oh, and if you love this post, spread the love by sharing it with your social media family, will you? Thank You!! ♥
Right? It’s funny, I thought of you when I drafted up this post. I’m so glad you enjoyed my sweet friend. 🙂 Thinking of you and hoping each of you are well.
Number 5 looks awesome….
Aw, thanks, Eliza! I hope you’ll be trying it in the near future. 🙂
Hi Holly <3
This post is actually perfectly timed for me 😉 Next week is the start of Spring here, and in December we'll be in Summer… so I am looking forward to trying some of these 😉
(Just a side note… the 'like' button doesn't load for me on any of your posts – so that's why I comment and never like them… just in case you were wondering 😉 )
Much love to you xx
Hi, Meg! ♥ Your comment made me smile! I’m so glad this is perfect timing for your seasonal change. I know you’re not a fan of heat, either. (Heaven knows I understand!) Hopefully one of these yummy treats will be the perfect respite you and your family need. 🤗
Thank you for letting me know about the like button. I’m not sure what’s going on with it. I was kind of hoping that an update would fix it, and have been waiting to see if that was the case. Looks like I might have to contact technical support about it. (sigh)
Sending all my love to you, friend. Thank you for another thoughtful comment!
They all look so delicious and nutritious – I am always saying eat a rainbow and love how you can eat it frozen!
Hi, Carol! Hah – I love your saying. 🙂 We could use some rainbows these days, couldn’t we? It’s really nice to hear from you. ♥ Thank you!
Thanks for sharing these beautiful colorful popsicles dear Holly, am definitely going to check them out and share. I’m sure these would brighten anyone’s day!!
Hi, Nisha! I agree with you – I think any of these could really brighten someone’s day. 🙂 All the better that they’re healthy! Let me know if you try any of these, will you? With your talents in the kitchen, I know they’ll be amazing! Thank you for sharing, my friend. You’re amazing! 💕
I will definitely try some of them Holly .Yes healthy makes them even more attractive 🙂 You are very welcome , my pleasure to share!
I eat ice lollies & ice cream all year round, but they’re super refreshing in the warm weather. Sadly it’s back to grey skies & it’s freeeeezing in the house today, but that won’t stop me attacking the freezer! I’ve not made my own popsicles since I was a kid but I LOVE the idea of giving it a go! I’ll need to get some moulds but there are so many types, I never would have thought of anything other than basic orange juice or pineapple juice. And those fudgsicles, mmmm!
Yep, we can definitely have our popsicle & eat it too 😉 I love the buttons on your posts to take us to the recipes, so funky! Thank you for the inspiration, I’ve bookmarked this to come back to so I can hopefully try some out for myself 😄 xx
Hey, Caz! I agree with you – ice cream and popsicles don’t have to just be for hot weather. We enjoy frozen treats year-round here too. 🙂 I’m so sorry that you’re freezing over there! Does it rain most of the time there?
I adored your recent baking adventures with your Mom. I bet the two of you could easily make a masterpiece out of these popsicles! I’m looking forward to hearing whether or not you make these! 🙂
Thank you for your sweet words, my friend. I treasure you! Sending hugs and hopes that you are well. ❤
It all looks great and inviting. 😁
I have never taken a popsicle but these really look great. I think I would prefer the blueberry. 😊
Aw, thank you sweetheart! I loved hearing your thoughts, thank you!
Citrus, chocolate and blueberry are my favorites. Not able to choose one haha
Hi, Inese! Yum, I agree with you wholeheartedly on your top 3! If you ask me, you don’t have to pick just one! 😀 Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts. I love hearing from you!
Agree with you. I wouldn’t pick just one if someone offered me a plate of these 🙂
These all look good enough to eat straight from the screen! Will definitely try these soon, they look good and refreshing, can’t believe they’re healthy too!
🤣 I feel the same way! If you do try one (or several), will you come back and let me know how much you liked it? I’d love to hear from you! Gratitude heading your way for taking the time to comment. Thank you! ♥
So much color and health! Thank you for sharing. I have always thought about making popsicles but have not gotten into it fully. These recipes rekindle the interest. Thank you!
Hi, dearest Micah! Aren’t the colors amazing? I’ve always heard that color = health. Well, unless those colors are Skittles I guess. Ha ha!
If you make any of these, I’d love to hear from you on what you thought. Making popsicles at home sounds like a lot of fun. I think it’s a great at-home activity for couples too! 🙂
Sending love to you. Thanks for another great comment! ♥
Agree. Eat the rainbow for health! And yes, I will let you know. It is warm again here, as it does before the big storms hit.
So many great ideas, Holly! Thank you for including my green smoothie popsicles!
Hi, Elena! It’s wonderful to hear from you. You are most certainly welcome. I think you’ve done an amazing job with these. I hope many people make them and enjoy new memories with their own families. 🙂 Blessings to you and yours. Thanks again!
They look so delicious!!! Sharing on my pinterest account for The Essential Creative!
Hi, Shell! How are you, my friend?
Don’t they look incredible? I’m betting you could add some essential oils to these as well for additional health benefits! I love you for sharing. Thank you so much! 🤗
You totally could! Even just for a hint of additional flavor. Have a great day Holly!
I pray the same for you, Shell! 🤗
I love popsicles, but I never eat them except on the rare occasion. These look so good, that I may have to try a few of these recipes! Thank you for sharing! Have a beautiful rest of the week!
Hi, Kathryn! It is truly wonderful to hear from you. Thank you so much for stopping in and sharing your thoughts. I appreciate you!
I agree with you – the ladies who created each of these recipes did a great job at luring us in, didn’t they? 🙂 If you do try any of them, I’d love to hear your feedback once you do!
Sending my love to you and yours, with hopes that your week is beautifully blessed as well. God bless! ♥
I would love to give these a go! I remember making lolly pops at my nans as a child. We would use orange juice, cola – anything really!
Hi, Nyxie! Great to hear from you!
Aww! You warmed my heart hearing that you and your Nan made lolly pops together. You must have some of the most amazing memories from those experiences. How sweet! I bet the creations you two made together were delicious! If you try any of these, will you let me know how you like them? 🙂
Thank you for such a thoughtful comment. I appreciate you! ♥
These are all mouth watering! Going to have to try some.
Hi, Michele! It’s lovely to hear from you again!
Mouth watering is a great description, I agree! 😁 If you try them, I hope you’ll let me know which is your favorite. Sending love your way! ♥️
Yummy indeed. I love all things frozen on these hot days.
Have a fabulous day and weekend, Holly. ♥
I agree, Sandee. Frozen treats on blistering days are incredibly refreshing. ♥ Praying your day and weekend is extra special, my friend. Nice to hear from you!
This looks so gooood 🤤
Ha ha, I agree! 🙂 I’m glad you enjoyed, Joana. Thank you for stopping in and sharing your thoughts. I appreciate you!
I’ll definitely be trying the fudge pops. I love chocolate and bananas together! I’m saving this so I can try a few others, too.
When I was little I always loved going to the store with my granddaddy. He’d buy me a chocolate ice cream with the wooden spoon. Those were the best!
Aw! It made me smile to hear you enjoyed these, Michelle! Will you let me know how they turn out if/when you try any of these recipes?
Hearing your memory of you and your grandaddy going to get the chocolate ice cream melted my heart! What a sweet story! I think I do know the kind of ice cream you’re speaking of, and it was yummy! 😀
Thank you for making my day, dear friend. It’s always a blessing to hear from you! 🤗
Mouthwatering and healthy popsicles are the best! My son loves popsicles so much and I have some cute silicone molds somewhere, I’ll try to make the watermelon lime first, they all look delicious, thank you for posting these gorgeous recipes! 💖🤗❣️
Aw! Your comment made my day! Healthy and delicious is a great combination, isn’t it? 🙂 I really hope you and your son enjoy these and make some amazing memories together, my friend. Let me know how they turned out, will you? 🤗
Good food is medicine that tastes good 🤗, I’ll let you know how they turned out❣️
Watermelon lime looks delicious!
I thought so too! Glad you enjoyed 😊 Thank you for sharing your thoughts!
OH wow I’m going to have to look into these ones! Blueberry popsicle please 😀 It’s great to know that there are yummy and healthy recipes to cool us down on those hot days ~ Refreshment at its best! Wonderful roundup here, Holly.
Blueberry popsicle coming right up, my friend! 😁 I hope you do get a chance to try these with your hubby. If you do, I hope you’ll come back and tell me how good they were! Sending my love to you, Christy. Thank you for your thoughtful comment! I genuinely appreciate you! 🤗
These all look fantastic Holly. I LOVE popsicles and have been buying the whole fruit ones with no added sugar at the store but they’re so expensive! September and October are often some of the hottest and driest months where I live here in Hawaii, so I think I’ll be giving some of these a try ASAP! The orange cream ones look fantastic and will probably be my first try. Thank you!
Hi, Clarissa! It’s great to hear from you!
Oh wow, what perfect timing for you! I agree – store bought varieties are tasty, but dang, they are expensive, like you said! Orange creme does sound delicious, doesn’t it? Will you let me know how it went for you when you try them? I hope you find a new favorite that out-tastes the ones you’ve been getting!
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts with me! ♥
Yes, I certainly will! I wonder, would it be rude to ask what plug-in you’re using for your social share buttons? They look so good! I could really use something like that on my site.
Heck no. Not rude at all. Glad to help! I am using Sassy Social Share because it is lightweight, doesn’t slow site down and works with Tasty Pins. 😊 Overall, I think it’s a pretty good one to use!
Sassy Social Share, got it. Thank you, I’ll check it out!
Sounds good. Let me know if you need any help 😊
I was just thinking that I should make popsicles at home because I eat them all the time and I feel like it would just be better to make at home. Great post!
Hi, Pooja! Thank you so much! I value your time to come and share your thoughts with me! ❤ Do you have a favorite you think you’ll try first? Whichever you do try, I hope you love it!
I’m probably going to try the chocolate one first because I feel like there’s no going wrong with chocolate haha!
🤣 Solid plan you have there, Pooja!
These sound delicious! 🙂
I agree with you! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me. I appreciate you! ❤
Even though it is now fall, there are still some warm days here & these recipes will come in handy! I definitely want to try making the orange creamsicle ones!
Hi, Karalee! It’s great to hear from you. Thank you so much for stopping in & sharing your thoughts. I appreciate you! ❤ The orange creamsicle ones look amazing, don’t they? We are thinking they’re next up in our home too. Will you let me know if you love it? 😉
Okay, I will need to make these because I love yummy treats! And ‘limited ingredient recipes’ are my Go-To. Thank you for sharing. 😋
Ha ha! I am in full agreement with you about limited ingredients. The easier, the better, right? On occasion, semi-complicated is okay, but for most days, quick is best. 😉 I really hope you enjoy if you get around to trying any of these! ♥ I appreciate your thoughtful comment!
Popsicles take me back, my favourite were Mini Milks. Although anything that tastes of strawberries is fine with me. I’ve never thought about making my own, maybe I’ll give that a try next year. It’s a bit cold now for frozen treats
Your comment made me smile! Isn’t it amazing how remembering something sentimental to us can take us right back to that memory? Sounds like you’ve got a few. Your choices sound pretty delicious. I hope you do get the chance to make a few and wind up loving every bite. Thank you so much for your thoughtful reply to this post. I appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts!
It may be Autumn now, but I’d still be up for a homemade popsicle! These look absolutely delicious and the colours are so appealing. The chocolate fudgesicles look irresistable and I also like the look of the blueberry ones, so I’d probably choose those first! Thank you for sharing these amazing recipes 🤗
Dearest Sophie, thank YOU for sharing your thoughts! I sincerely appreciate you.
Don’t these look incredibly delicious? I agree with you about the colors too. It’s quite literally like eating a yummy rainbow! 😀 I do hope you can try these out, and that you enjoy every bite. If you can, let me know what you think of them!
