Fresh Popsicles

Happiness is...

...making your own popsicles, and seeing a picture of Mikaila's beautiful smile! 

  • Decide on your favorite fresh squeezed juices, pressed juices, and nut milks. Think grapefruit juice, pomegranate juice, dark chocolate almond milk (yes, they have that, etc. The ones I used are below.
  • 1/2 cup fresh squeezed orange juice
  • 1/2 cup pressed cucumber apple juice
  • 1/2 cup vanilla coconut milk
  • optional: 1 tablespoon vegan chocolate chips
These portions serve 3.

  1. Pour juice into 3 x 4- to 6- ounce paper cups. (I used coffee espresso shot cups.)
  2. Optional: add vegan chocolate chips to the nut milk cup. 
  3. Cover each cup with foil, place a small hole in the foil with a knife, and insert wooden sticks into each cup through the hole.
  4. Freeze for roughly 4 hours, and remove from paper cups so they are picture perfect and ready for display.

A little sweet, a little treat. Healthy living, beautiful living. Namaste.


  1. Looks great!! Love popsicles they are perfect anytime, and so much fun to make with the kids. Will have to try this weekend. My 10 1/2 month old especially will love since she is teething, they will feel so good on her gums, right now she is chewing on frozen grapes wrapped in a cheesecloth. Thanks for the recipe!

  2. The cucumber & apple juice combination sounds great, fresh and not too sweet, I will need to try that....

  3. Thanks!! Let me know if you both try and how they come out :) :)
