Trying to get the kids to eat healthy cool treats?
Ok then this is the post for you – for these healthy homemade popsicle recipes all you need in the way of equipment is a food processor and popsicle molds.
Here are some that incorporate good fats, fruit and little or healthy sugars!

I hope you really enjoy these – I have heard that the silicone popsicle molds are really the best for getting the popsicles out easily – I plan on buying some soon – another way to do this old school is to pour the popsicle stuff into ice cube trays, cover with saran wrap or foil and then stick in a popsicle stick through the foil so it is supported and freeze… easy peasy!
