Make your own healthy popsicles

Popsicle Makers

Kids love treats, but they don’t always have to be mass processed, full of sugar and preservatives and bad for you. This summer at Shop Naturally, we’ve hunted down a quality range of BPA Free popsicle makers from Tovolo.

Make your own treats based on any combination of  ingredients that come to mind, including things like fruit, natural yoghurt, coconut water, home made ice-cream and more. You can even get really creative with things like grated organic chocolate, coconut oil, coconut pieces, goji berries and superfood powders.

Whizz up your ingredients with a stick blender, food processor, or if you’re lucky enough to have one in your kitchen, your Vitamix blender.

HOMEMADE BANANA PADDLE POPS

If you own a Vitamix, be sure to buy bananas when they’re cheap and pop some in the freezer. It’s super easy to make banana ice cream and to turn them in to paddle pops. Simply pop in some sliced frozen banana, (skin removed) and blend on high for about 30 seconds or until you see the cool pattern in the top of the mixture and it looks like the consisitency of soft serve ice-cream.

Spoon it in to the popsicle molds, pop the stick in and put them in the freezer to let them firm up. For added flavour sensations, try mixing in some honey, passionfruit or even some cacao powder or cacao bits for a choc/banana treat.

Shop Naturally is an authorised Vitamix Australia dealer.
