Paleo Popsicle Recipes – Popsicles
There is nothing quite as refreshing on a hot, summer day as a good popsicle and these ones are no exception! Agua fresca is delicious served ice-cold as a drink, but it also makes great iced treats which are totally allergy-free and if you use a really ripe melon, totally sweetener-free too! The added lime slices give a more impressive look and add even more freshness.
– The Real Food Guide
Ingredients: full-fat coconut milk, gelatin, vanilla extract, maple syrup, fresh cherries, coconut oil, carob powder, toasted coconut flakes or almonds or cashew pieces (optional).
These popsicles are different to others because they have chunks of cherry through them which can be a delightful surprise when you eat them. The chocolaty coating is optional, but if you can tolerate carob it adds extra flavor and makes these even more appealing for kids, or adults with chocolate cravings.
– Phoenix Helix
Ingredients: blackberries, strawberries, kombucha, raw honey.
It is claimed that kombucha contains probiotics, but regardless of these claims, the flavor of this fermented tea drink goes really well with berries. If you can find really ripe berries, you might find that you don’t need to add any honey, but taste the mixture before freezing to allow you to adjust it to taste. If you don’t have molds then you can fill ice-cube trays, cover with film and insert cocktail sticks through the film to keep them upright.
Ingredients: water kefir, lemon, sprigs of mint.
Lemon and mint are such refreshing ingredients to use in popsicles and are perfect for enjoying in hot weather. There is a wide variety of popsicle molds on the market and they come in a choice of sizes, so if you are making these for the younger members of the family you might want to make smaller ones.
– Stupid Easy Paleo
Ingredients: coconut water, lime juice, lime zest, raspberries, white peach, full-fat coconut milk, lemon juice, lemon zest, blueberries.
We all remember rocket popsicles from the past and this recipe lets you recreate them yourself! There is something even better about the layers of flavor and color here that is so appealing, and these are a great idea for getting fruit into reluctant kids! You can either include pieces of fruit in each layer or blend them for a smoother texture.

Ingredients: almond milk or milk of choice, ground turmeric, ground cardamom, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, black pepper, almond flour, honey.
If you are a bit doubtful about trying turmeric, then these popsicles are a great introduction. They are easy to eat and you can start off with less turmeric until you get used to the flavor. These are great for sore throats and colds, but please remember that turmeric stains! If you are giving these to a child, make sure their clothes are well-protected.
These popsicles are so easy to make – blend it all and freeze – so you won’t have any excuse not to try making them. The melon and mint give a light, refreshing flavor, perfect for a summertime treat which doesn’t require any added sweeteners, so they are healthier options for the whole family. You could use strawberries instead of melon – just remember to strain out the seeds.
Paleo Popsicle Recipes – Creamsicles
If you really miss ice cream but don’t or can’t eat dairy, then here is the answer! These treats are creamy, sweet and delicious – coconut and vanilla work so well together. If you don’t have popsicle molds then use paper cups or ice-cube trays, cover with foil and stick lolly sticks or cocktail sticks through the foil to hold them in place.
This recipe only has a few ingredients and the preparation time is next to nothing, so homemade popsicles could easily be fitted into your schedule! These ones have added avocado for extra goodness and a creamy texture and it makes a softer popsicle than fruit-only ones. Because of the natural sweetness of the melon, you don’t need to add any sweetener.
– Healing Family Eats
Ingredients: blackberries, basil leaves, Medjool dates, coconut milk.
Basil with fruit may sound a bit strange, but why not try it! Basil adds another level of freshness to this mixture and the coconut milk makes them so creamy that even the youngsters will enjoy them. If you don’t have or like dates then you can add in a little honey for sweetness instead, but taste the mix while you add it so they are not too sweet.
Orange and coconut go together so well in these homemade treats. They are packed with flavor and have a real zing from the orange zest. The coconut milk gives a lovely creamy texture and the sea salt gives the whole thing a different edge, although it can be omitted if you wish. As these are dairy -free, they make fantastic treats for youngsters with dairy issues and let you control what they eat.
Can you imagine handing these out at a family gathering and impressing everyone! They look amazing with the swirled effect of the strawberries and the coconut. If you are looking for different color combinations, you could try adding blueberries or blackberries as well. Just have fun making your own popsicles to enjoy.
– The Tasty Alternative
Ingredients: coconut milk, spinach, avocado, honey, lime juice.
If you are looking for a great way to get more greens into reluctant children (or adults!) then these would be perfect! They get their color from spinach, which we all know is rich in nutrients, yet you can’t taste it at all! The lime juice adds a zesty freshness to the taste and the honey gives the treat the necessary sweetness, although you could add pureed ripe banana instead.
This is another recipe that uses spinach as a base, yet the flavor does not come through, so they are a great way to get kids to eat greens. These treats are rich and creamy, thanks to the bananas and avocado, yet they have freshness from the carrot and lemon juice. Just make sure you blend until the mixture is totally smooth to allow the flavors to marry together.
– Will Cook for Smiles
Ingredients: coconut water, cream of coconut, kiwi.
These popsicles are full of tropical flavor and the slices of kiwi make them look so pretty. Because these are not sweetened, they are a great way to keep cool in summer and are even more refreshing. Coconut water is becoming so popular these days, so why not try it in this form, then if you like it you can experiment with other ingredients.
Paleo Popsicle Recipes – Ice Pops and Paletas
Coconut water has been shown to be super healthy as it restores the electrolytes in your body, so why would you not want to use it for this recipe? You can use any frozen fruits you like so it is very versatile. Layers of colored berries would look so good in these ice pops, or you could use just one fruit for a more concentrated flavor.
– Rubies and Radishes
Ingredients: cantaloupe, lime juice, honey (optional), sea salt, fresh mint leaves.
If you have a melon that is super-ripe, it would be ideal to use in this recipe and would mean that you don’t need to add any honey. Paletas are simply Mexican popsicles that are usually made with fruit, so you can experiment with other fruit purees. If you are not so keen on fresh mint, although it is very refreshing, you could use basil instead.
This recipe would be perfect for any lover of chocolate and cherries together! The meaty flesh of the cherries gives these treats a fantastic texture and the cacao powder gives the chocolate flavor you are craving, without going overboard. Just remember to taste the mixture before adding the honey as the cherries might be sweet enough on their own.

Ingredients: bananas, strawberries, vanilla extract (optional), unsweetened almond milk or coconut milk, cocoa powder or cacao powder, maple syrup or honey.
Fudge pops would be great for a kid’s summer party and these ones are ideal as they are gluten and grain-free and are also vegan, so won’t upset anyone with eating problems. These ingredients, like for many fudge pops, would be great as a smoothie but are also perfect for making pops to cool you down in hot weather or as an after-school treat for kids.
These Cherry Limeade Pops are so delightful and very easy to make! Just boil the cherries, pop them in the freezer, and the kids will have a yummy frozen treat right after a tiring day at school.
