Keeping Cool for Summer with Superfood Popsicles

superfoodpopsiclesFrom the pool to cocktails, summer is all about soaking up the sun. Even here in Arizona, as a whole, we are outdoor people who love to indulge in all the summer activities. So in honor of this wonderful sunny season, I’ve created superfood popsicles that are perfect for this summer heat.

Its no secret that Genesis Today offers superb superfoods with quality ingredients. So it was a no brainer that I would use their products as my secret weapon! For these superfood popsicles I used Organic Acai, Goji, Mangosteen, and Total Nutrition. These products not only taste great but reap awesome health benefits as well.

Superfood PopsiclesTo start, all you need is a popsicle mold. You can find these on Amazon or grab some cheapies at the Dollar Store, whatever works. With these superfood popsicles you have the ability to make them as icy or as creamy as you would like. If you like icy popsicles then you can just use coconut or mineral water. Like your popsicles a little more creamy? Grab some almond milk. If you want ice cream on a stick then pick up a couple containers of your favorite yogurt.

If it is a struggle to get them out still then repeat dip again so that you don’t break the stick or handle off. Last but not least, enjoy your popsicle goodness knowing that you are eating up awesome superfoods to fuel your body.

Also, don’t forget! From now until September 10th, using the code SUPERSUMMER will get you a whopping 20% off anything online. That’s a steal!

    This is a great idea. I have never made my own posicles. What a fun and sneaky way to get in some extra vitamins. I bet my granddaughter would love these.

    These look and sound fantastic. We love making our own popsicles, I can’t seem to keep them in the freezer though my kids eat them up as fast as they are ready it seems. Would love to give these a try!

    These Superfood popsicles sound like great healthy popicles for sure. I didn’t think about adding almond milk to make them creamy. This is something I am going to have to try for sure. Thanks for sharing the ideas.

    My boys and I absolutely love to make our own popsicles, especially since it is so hot and humid in Chicago. What a great idea to include such super and healthy ingredients.

    Great idea including superfoods in popsicles! I love tehm especially in the summer. As kids we would always hoard the mango flavored ones!
