The perfect quick blender recipe for sugar-free creamy chocolate berry popsicles (with hidden spinach).
But warning ... these super yummy berry popsicles will have your kids wanting more — but with healthy ingredients like these, you won't mind if they have a second! These are the perfect healthy sugar-free snack in the hot summer.
My kids were begging me for a healthy version of their regular summer treat - ice blocks/popsicles, so I came up with this cooling dessert. There's a little bit of everything in here including frozen mixed berries, cocoa powder (for a nice chocolatey flavour), and even hidden spinach!
I promise your kids will never know there are secret veggies hiding in these homemade popsicles. They'll be too busy enjoying them to even think about it.
Plus, there are so many possibilities with this frozen treat. Why not let your kids come up with some fun ideas? Chocolate orange popsicles? Mocha? Let their imagination go wild.
Are your kids like mine? Do they love making weird formulas then freezing them to see how they turn out? I remember as a kid, freezing water, grass and soil just so I could see it suspended in a frozen block. Let your kids experiment, let them have fun in the kitchen. You'll be amazed at what they want to put into a popsicle mold!
Mixed berry popsicles
Do you have trouble getting your children to eat their leafy greens? Try these super simple mixed berry popsicles. They're delicious and super refreshing on a sunny day.
These healthy berry popsicles have no added sugar, no added colours, no preservatives. Even better? Sneakily hidden inside these popsicles are spinach, chia seeds, coconut cream, yoghurt, and berries. What would you add to yours?
Frozen berries are always a delicious healthy after-school snack and a refreshing way to cool down in the summer.
Once your children figure out what's inside, get them to make this simple recipe. Let them have fun in the kitchen experimenting with flavours and fresh ingredients.
Fruit popsicles like these are so much fun to make because you can customize them to your liking! Here's what I put in mine:
- Unsweetened yogurt - adds creaminess and a good amount of protein. Make sure to get a full-fat variety with lower carbs.
- Coconut cream - this is different from coconut milk, although you can often find both cans in the same area of the grocery store.
- Berries - you can use frozen berries or fresh, depending on what you have. Strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, and even a squeeze of lime is a refreshing way to enjoy the sweetness of these low-sugar fruits.
- Unsweetened cocoa powder - I know it may seem odd to have cocoa in berry popsicles, but trust me on this one!
- Leafy greens - I prefer spinach but you can also use kale, leafy beat, collard greens, or any other one you'd like.
- Chia seeds
- Milk or cream - make sure to get the full-fat varietyl.
- Granulated sweetener of choice
Making these berry popsicles couldn't be easier! In fact, this is one of the easiest healthy recipes I've ever made.
STEP 1: Make the no-churn ice cream.
All you need to do is add all the ingredients to your high-speed blender and pulse until everything is completely smooth.
STEP 2: Pour the popsicles.
Next, pour the mixture into a popsicle mold. Any leftovers can be enjoyed as a quick healthy refreshing sugar-free smoothie.
Place the popsicle mold sticks on tight and freeze overnight.
STEP 3: Remove the popsicles.
To enjoy your keto mixed berry popsicles, you can leave the frozen ice cream blocks on the kitchen bench for a few minutes, or quickly dip the popsicle molds in warm water for 3-5 seconds. This makes it easy to remove a frozen popsicle from their cases.
A blender is pretty vital to this recipe - without it, you won't have a completely smooth frozen treat and the spinach will be clearly visible which is not what we want! If you don't have a blender, you can use a food processor. Just pulse until the mixture is smooth!
There are so many cute popsicle molds out there in all kinds of shapes. I love these star-shaped popsicle molds and the silicon squeezies.
Choose what works best for your popsicle recipes! If they don't come with popsicle sticks, make sure to grab a few of those before you make this recipe.
Don't have a popsicle mold? No problem! They can even be poured into paper cups or ice cube trays. Freeze and add to smoothies! Or what about for toddlers or for teething babies? Even picky eaters will love this at the dinner table.
Either works very well! If you have a freezer stocked with fruits, by all means, use frozen. And if you happen to be making these in the summer when there is an abundance of fresh berries, strawberries, blueberries, or raspberries, they are all delicious too.
Either way, they will need to be blended up and frozen, so use what you have available.
When you are making mixed berry popsicles, it seems like the sky's the limit. There are so many different (and yummy) combinations you can try.
Since I prefer to keep my carbs in fruit as low as possible, I usually choose strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries. These three taste lovely together, or on their own.
A frozen blackberry puree with a bit of lemon juice is incredibly refreshing. Or why not mix up some raspberries and strawberries for a nice tart treat?

The berries give a certain level of sweetness but you can also use your favorite sweeteners such as powdered erythritol, stevia, monk fruit, or allulose. Some may choose to use honey for their children, but just be aware honey is still sugar.
