I love making my own popsicles for the family to enjoy during the hot summer months. The beauty of homemade is that you have so much more control over the ingredients.

The Popsicle Superfoods

Hello superfoods!  Yes, a summer dessert can be good for you and super yummy too!

Chia Seeds

The health benefits of chia seeds include: high in antioxidants, digestive support, high in fiber, high plant protein, high in calcium, support natural detoxification, reduce inflammation, high in omega-3 ALA, heart health, lower cholesterol,  AND… they are gluten free and “typically” non-GMO and grown organic.

Acai

Acai is loaded with antioxidants, essential amino acids, and many other nutrients including resveratrol, polyphenols, and flavonoids. PS – it’s pronounced either “Ah-Sigh” or “Ah-Sigh-EE.”

Blueberries

Last but not least, the superfoodiest of all superfoods – the tiny little blueberry. Blueberries are believed to contain the highest antioxidant capacity of all fruits and vegetables. The antioxidant compounds in blueberries belong to a family of polyphenols called flavonoids. They help to protect our bodies from damage by free radicals. LOVE!

Younger children can help you combine the ingredients and pour into the popsicle molds while you handle the stove.

The most difficult part about this recipe?  Waiting for it to freeze! It’s easy and relatively mess-free to eat with the drip guard, but I still like to eat my popsicles over a bowl.

Here is my secret for all of the time crunched Mammas out there.  I use the same recipe as I did for the berry compote for my Lemon Matcha Pancakes.  So when you are making pancakes, make an extra big batch of the compote, set aside half for the compote, and then add some more water and use the remaining for the popsicles.

Or if you follow the recipe below for only the popsicles, then add some more water.  How much? Eh… 1/2 cup or so.  You can’t go wrong with this.
