What better summertime treat than popsicles?  Homemade popsicles are easy to make and a fun activity to involve your children in.  Choosing local organic ingredients can also make them quite healthy!

We thought we’d share a few of our favorite recipes with you:


  • 1 cup canned coconut milk
  • ½ cup organic fair-trade cocoa powder
  • ½ cup agave

Combine all in saucepan on low heat until cocoa is melted.  Pour into molds, add sticks and freeze at least 4 hours.

Strawberry Popsicles

  • 3 cups fresh organic strawberries, tops cut off and halved
  • ½ cup agave

Combine all in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Pour puree into molds and put freeze at least 4 hours.

  • 1 can coconut milk
  • ¼ cup agave

Blend both in a blender or food processor, pour into molds and freeze at least 4 hours.


To make striped or multi-flavored popsicles, let each flavor freeze for 1 hour before adding the next. Don’t forget to add your stick! 

We used Tovolo’s groovy popsicle molds, they’re BPA free, eliminate the waste of throwing away popsicle sticks and have a drip catcher.
