Popsicles are tasty—there’s no denying that! Enjoying an ice-cold popsicle on a hot summer day is almost a right of passage for a kid. I can remember chasing the ice cream truck down the street like it was yesterday—bare feet slapping against the pavement with a wrinkled up $5 bill in my hand, praying that my favorite character popsicle with gumball eyes wasn’t sold out. Back in the day, this is was what kids lived for. We trained for it. We’d practice how quickly we could grab a couple of bucks and sprint out the door, dodging every obstacle that got in our way just to get our hands on a delicious popsicle. As soon as the whimsical tune “Do Your Ears Hang Low” echoed throughout the cul-de-sac… It was go time, baby!🍦

But, no matter how delicious popsicles were at the time, and still are today, they’re lacking in the nutrition department. Let’s be honest, they’re basically flavored sugar on a stick. Nowadays, people are a lot more health-conscious than they used to be, taking a toll on the now nostalgic ice cream truck business. But that doesn’t mean we can’t still enjoy a yummy popsicle! I’m sharing four simple and healthy popsicle recipes that you can make at home without all the added sugar. These healthy popsicles are so easy to make you’ll be shocked you didn’t start making them sooner.

What’s In These Healthy Popsicles?


So, just how healthy are these so-called healthy popsicles, you ask? 🤨 I’m pleased to report that all four of these easy homemade popsicles are under (drumroll please 🥁)… 65 calories per pop, with the majority of the calories coming from protein! Compared to a store-bought popsicle, this is significantly healthier. On average, the traditional store-bought popsicle contains roughly 12 ingredients where the first three ingredients are different varieties of SUGAR! High-fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, and sugar to be exact. These healthy popsicles contain only 2 ingredients—light coconut milk and Super Youth Collagen, or SkinnyFit Detox and fresh fruit. 

Collagen is a type of protein found naturally in our bodies. This particular type of protein acts like a glue and essentially keeps all of our bones, joints, muscles, and organ systems in tact. As we age, our collagen supply starts to decline and, unfortunately, we are unable to produce more of it once it’s gone. The loss of collagen is what causes the physical signs of aging—wrinkles, sagging skin, brittle hair and nails, achy and cracking joints, digestive issues, and even weight gain. Taking a high-quality collagen supplement, like SkinnyFit Super Youth, replenishes your body of its natural collagen, allowing you to look and feel younger. And guess what? You can easily get a quick fix of collagen by enjoying any of these healthy popsicles!
