I’m all for a healthy popsicle all day every day… why not?!
I love how you can take any of our green smoothie recipes and transform them into smoothie bowls or popsicles just like that. Super easy and keeps the healthy plant-based eating foundation going on.
Health benefits of this popsicle recipe
This popsicle recipe is from our Fresh Start Spring Cleanse and is loaded with healthy fats and fiber… which should become your new BFFs (if they aren’t already).
Avocado and coconut have beautiful amounts of healthy fats in them naturally, which is why I like to blend with them.
Healthy fats help our digestive system, our skin and our hydration levels as well— and all of this translates into glowing clear skin.
How to blend a popsicle
The key to a delicious healthy popsicle is making sure all the chunks are gone. You want something smooth and creamy to suck on— not chew on. I use my Vitamix, which is the best high speed blender (in my opinion).
Save money on a high speed blender
If you’re in the market for a new blender, I highly recommend you check out this “secret deal” I’ve got with Vitamix. You can get a high speed blender with a 5-year warranty for under $300. It’s incredible, honestly.
Just click this link, pick your color and then add to your cart. In the checkout, you’ll see the discounts magically appear and the price drops $160 just like that (plus you get free shipping)Print
This healthy popsicle recipe is creamy and refreshing on a hot summer day. Slightly sweet with loads of tangy fresh lime juice and plenty of creaminess from the avocado and coconut milk, it’s hard to believe these are a part of our Fresh Start Spring Cleanse …. but they totally are!
