We Snack (mostly) Raw Wednesdays: Popsicles

Homemade Popsicles are one of the best treats at our house!  These aren't just for summer, and they're not full of sugary, artificial flavors either!  We enjoyed these Chocolate Pops (from Tone It Up's Nutrition Plan, which I can't post) this summer and many others throughout the year, here are our top 3 favorites:

Chocolate Pops (Alternative) (by Choosing Raw
This recipe is actually for a Raw Chocolate Pudding, but I think it would make a perfect base for a creamy Chocolate Popsicle! 

1 Pitted Avocado (I know what you're thinking, but trust me...it's good)
6-10 Dates
1/2 tsp Vanilla
4 Tbsp (raw) Cocoa
1/2 cup Water
Blend all together in a food processor and pour into molds, or eat out of the bowl as pudding!

Green Monster Popsicles
This is an easy way to make two-meals in one.  Some mornings I like to make the girls smoothies for breakfast or morning snack, especially when the seasons are changing or we need an immunity boost.  When I do I like to make just a little extra (about one servings worth) and pour into the molds.  They love these too!

Kale or Spinach
Mixed Berries
Touch of Honey
Any extra goodies I have: Flax Seed, Chia Seed, Cinnamon, Shredded Coconut, Organic Greek Yogurt...
Blend with water or juice and pour!

Fruity Tooty Pops
One of the easiest ways to make Popsicles: throw a few chunks of fresh or frozen fruit in the molds and cover with juice or fruity flavored coconut water. Freeze and eat.  I have also thrown some almost-to-ripe strawberries in a blender with a little of my leftover Guava Coconut Water and made a slush, then frozen in the molds.  The girls loved all these!
