26 AIP Popsicle Recipes to Make You Smack Your Lips https://healingautoimmune.com/aip-popsicle-recipes

Grabbing a nice, refreshing popsicle from the cooler when you’re enjoying a sunny day on the beach… That’s something you probably didn’t think you’d be able to do on AIP, right?

This delightful recipe collection is here to prove you wrong. 26 amazing popsicle recipes, each one more delicious than the other – and they’re all ok to devour on an AIP diet.

What makes most store-bought popsicles so bad for AIP?

First of all, they’re usually packed with a huge amount of sugar! Another thing you should watch out for are all kinds of preservatives, artificial sweeteners and food colorings.

Not to mention dairy and chocolate, which may cause a lot of trouble and inflammation.

Enjoy popsicles that won’t wreck your diet!

Making popsicles is so easy, you’ll soon wonder why you haven’t tried it before. You get to choose your favorite ingredients – and they’re real foods, nothing artificial or so strange you can’t even pronounce it.

Let’s not forget about the costs! When you’re making these at home, you can fill up your freezer with healthy treats and it won’t cost you an arm and a leg. For some of these, you only need 3 or 4 ingredients.

I admit this list is going to cause problems… How do you decide which one you should make, first? If you have kids, I suggest you let them pick a favorite.

For me – I would start from the beginning and give every recipe a try…

Blueberry Coconut Ice Pop [Paleo, Dairy-Free, AIP]

Ingredients: blueberries, coconut milk, raw honey, lemon juice, vanilla salt or regular salt – Note that Sarah Ballantyne suggests omitting vanilla initially on AIP.

Blueberries are just packed with flavor, making these dairy free ice pops a great choice for a sunny day or as a light and refreshing snack. If you prefer a bit more texture in your snacks, try adding in a small amount of shredded coconut. Ice pop molds are available in different sizes which means you can scale these ice pops down if you are serving them to children, and ice pops help increase their intake of fruit without them noticing!

Ingredients: coconut cream, mango, bananas.

In this delicious recipe, the sweetness comes from the fruit, and this is a great way to use up bananas that are starting to get too soft. The mixture can be served as a smoothie or frozen in moulds like this to make yummy popsicles with that tropical mix of mango and coconut. Perfect paleo snacks to enjoy at any time of year. This recipe is dairy and sugar free, but full of flavor.

There is nothing quite as refreshing on a hot, summer day as a good popsicle and these ones are no exception! Aguafresca is delicious served ice-cold as a drink, but it also makes great iced treats which are totally allergy free and if you use a really ripe melon, totally sweetener free too! The added lime slices give a more impressive look and add even more freshness.

If you have anyone in the family who is coeliac or has other autoimmune issues, it can be a challenge to find lovely snacks they can enjoy. So why not treat them to these wonderful berry popsicles! They can be made with any berries, but blackberries are great, and the sweetness comes from the banana so there is no added sugar. Even better, they are ready to freeze in a few minutes!

This AIP recipe only has a few ingredients and the preparation time is next to nothing, so homemade popsicles could easily be fitted into your schedule! These ones have added avocado for extra goodness and a creamy texture and it makes a softer popsicle than fruit-only ones. Because of the natural sweetness of the melon, you don’t need to add any sweetener.

Here is another clever recipe that is suitable for those of you who don’t like coconut. The pineapple and lime give a great tropical flavor to these popsicles, and they are so refreshing and cooling for a warm day. This recipe is also adaptable – try adding in some gelatin for added health benefits and it also stops them melting quite as fast, which can be useful for little ones!

Ingredients: honey unpasteurized, coconut milk, blueberries (fresh or frozen), collagen hydrolysate Great Lakes brand.

Homemade popsicles can be the perfect way to let the family eat healthily, thanks to sugar and dairy free recipes like this one. Blueberries make a fantastic ingredient to use for popsicles because of both the flavor and the color, but this recipe also works with any berries of choice. You can also choose to make the mixture smooth, or drop in a few whole berries before freezing.

Blackberry Basil Popsicles

Ingredients: blackberries, basil leaves, medjool dates, coconut milk.

Basil with fruit may sound a bit strange, but why not try it! Basil adds another level of freshness to this mixture and the coconut milk makes them so creamy that even the youngsters will enjoy them. If you don’t have or like dates then you can add in a little honey for sweetness instead, but taste the mix before you add it so they are not too sweet. Then enjoy these AIP popsicles!

Watermelon Mint Popsicles

– AIP Sisterhood

Ingredients: seedless watermelon, coconut cream, honey, water, fresh mint leaves.

The flavors in these popsicles are perfect for summer as they are refreshing and cool you down on a warmer day. I find that children really love watermelon popsicles, so if you have kids you can give these a go! These AIP popsicles can be made any size you want by altering the moulds – try ice cube trays for little ones – and if you use maple syrup instead of honey, this is a vegan recipe too.

Watermelon, Raspberry and Lime Ice Pops

Here is another great dairy and sugar free AIP recipe that gives you ice pops that are packed with flavor and are such a wonderfully vivid color that everyone will want one! Raspberry and lime is a fantastic combination of tastes that will quench anyone’s thirst, no matter what time of year. My problem with watermelon is that they can be large, so this recipe is perfect for using it up before it wilts.

Adding herbs into a fruity popsicle can make the flavor even more refreshing, and the fragrant basil goes perfectly with the watermelon in this AIP friendly recipe.

This recipe is completely free of sugar and dairy and is another one that does not use coconut.

Ingredients: fresh strawberries, extra-virgin olive oil, fresh lemon juice, sea salt, water.

In the summer time when the soft fruit is available everywhere, and at great prices, this handy recipe gives you a great idea for using it up. Roasting the strawberries brings out the natural sweetness and intensifies the flavor of the fruit, making these popsicles even tastier than store bought ones. So why not roast several batches and freeze them so you can make AIP popsicles whenever you need them.

The popsicles in this recipe are two tone, fresh and fruity, with a watermelon half and a kiwi half. They look as good as they taste, and are sugar and dairy free snacks that the whole family will enjoy. There are so many AIP popsicle recipes out there that it might be a good idea to buy moulds that can be reused – they can be sourced quite cheaply online.

Ingredients: honeydew melon, coconut cream, watermelon, lemon juice, Peppermint essential oil.

Healthy popsicles can be so good for you as they have no added sugar, but they can also be low in calories like these ones, and can be handy for anyone who wants to lose weight. The mint in these ones makes them so refreshing, and there is enough sweetness from the melon to satisfy any sweet tooth, so taste the mixture before adding in the honey.

Creamy AIP Popsicles

AIP Golden Milk Popsicles

– Healing Autoimmune

AIP Golden Milk Popsicles

Ingredients: coconut milk (from a can of coconut milk without guar gum or other thickeners), raw honey, turmeric powder, ground ginger, cinnamon.

We all know that golden milk has long been used as a drink that supports health and has the benefits that come from the turmeric, but now we can enjoy it in a frozen treat! You have the gentle spice of cinnamon and ginger in a sweet and creamy popsicle, and these are really easy to eat so would be ideal for anyone recovering from illness. This recipe is sugar and dairy free.

Orange Creamsicle Popsicle

Ingredients: boiling water, coconut shreds, orange juice, fresh orange zest, sea salt, pure vanilla extract.

Orange and coconut go together so well in these homemade treats. They are packed with flavor and have a real zing from the orange zest. The coconut milk gives a lovely creamy texture and the sea salt gives the whole thing a different edge, although it can be omitted if you wish. As these are dairy free, they make fantastic treats for youngsters with dairy issues and this lets you control what they eat.

Mango Banana Vanilla Cream Pops

Ingredients: unsweetened almond or coconut milk, banana, mango (fresh or frozen), gluten free organic vanilla extract or vanilla bean powder, honey.

Although the popsicles here are creamy, and the mixture tastes like a fruity smoothie, this is a dairy free recipe that can be adapted to suit AIP, paleo and low carbohydrate diets. The mango and banana give these frozen snacks a lovely tropical taste that will cool you and quench your thirst on a hotter day. This recipe can also be placed in an ice cream maker and churned to make mango ice cream.

Banana Cream Pie Ice Pops

– Seasonal & Savory

Ingredients: full-fat coconut milk, bananas, vanilla extract, salt.

Here is another helpful recipe if you have bananas that are getting a bit too soft to eat raw. The result is smooth, creamy and indulgent, and it is difficult to accept that these are sugar and dairy free. You can alter the flavor by adding in some cacao powder, or you can add strawberries for a fruity alternative, but still use the banana as it helps with the consistency of these AIP treats.

Creamy Mango Ice Pops

Ingredients: mango, coconut milk, vanilla extract, honey.

One of the best things about using mango in popsicles is that you don’t have to source fresh mangoes as you can use frozen fruit instead, and this can sometimes be cheaper too. The coconut milk adds a creaminess to the popsicle and adds in some healthy fats to help keep you full for a while, so these would be great for a warmer day when you need a little energy boost.

Strawberry Banana Fudge Pops

Ingredients: bananas, strawberries, coconut milk, cocoa powder (omit), honey.

This recipe is a combination of strawberry and chocolate and has a delicious fudgy taste. The pops made here are vegan, grain and gluten free and have no added sugars, so they would make great snacks for a warm day. These pops go down well with kids and adults, and are a great way to encourage healthy eating in the family. If you prefer a smooth texture, blend the fruit before adding it.

When you see the pictures of these delicious pops, they will make your mouth water! You can use whatever berry combination you like, and as with other AIP popsicle recipes, if you don’t like the chunkier texture you can blend the ingredients before freezing. The creaminess in these amazing treats comes from the coconut milk, which also adds in some healthy fats.

Piña Colada Popsicles

Ingredients: pineapple, banana, full fat coconut milk, filtered water.

With all the tropical flavors of banana, pineapple and coconut, these popsicles are as close to the actual cocktail as you can get without the alcohol! They are smooth, creamy and delicious and would make a wonderful summer dessert after a main meal. Thanks to the use of coconut milk, these are creamy but dairy free and suitable for the autoimmune protocol.

Banana Fudge-Sicles

– AIP Sisterhood

Ingredients: coconut milk, carob powder, dates (softened), almond butter (omit), banana.

When I first saw this recipe, I just knew that the kids would love these popsicles, but I forgot that grownups were kids once too! My hubby is addicted to these sweet and fruity treats! They have the added benefit of the fiber from the dates and they are packed with natural sweetness and just enough of a chocolate hit to make them irresistible. All this and dairy free, and compliant with the AIP diet!
