Ginger Berry Popsicles (naturally vegan, gluten-free)

These ginger berry popsicles only have five ingredients and are naturally gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and are sweetened with bananas!

Popsicles have never really been my thing. The ones from my childhood were basically sugar, artificial flavoring and coloring. I remember even getting headaches when eating them – and I don’t get ice cream headaches!

I just looked up the ingredients of the most popular popsicle brand of of my youth.

These ginger berry popsicles only have five ingredients and are naturally gluten-free, vegan, dairy-free and are sweetened with bananas!

Water, high fructose corn syrup, corn syrup, sugar, contains 1 percent or less of each of the following: malic acid, citric acid, guar gum, natural and artificial flavor, red 40, ascorbic acid (vitamin c), locust bean gum, cherry juice concentrate

Mmm! Yummy, right? :D

The ingredient list for these ginger berry popsicles?

Blueberries, strawberries, bananas, coconut milk, ginger

I used a banana to sweeten them and add a little creaminess. But just to be clear – these aren’t creamy like ice cream. They’re icy. If you don’t want to use a banana, use some avocado and add some sweetener to taste. Without a banana or avocado, these are basically pureed frozen fruit with some coconut milk, which isn’t the best treat texturally.

Coconut milk also adds a little fat and creaminess to the popsicles but if you want to use regular milk, that’d work, too. They’ll just be a little icier!

If you’re not a ginger fan, you’ll want to reduce it by quite a bit or leave it out all together as it’s the predominant flavor. I used to have an upset stomach pretty often and I was throwing ginger into everything. I’m not sure whether frozen food is technically good for nausea, but my stomach certainly felt better after eating one of these the other day!

I used this BPA-free popsicle mold and got ten 3-ounce (.375 cup) popsicles. If you don’t have a popsicle mold, make half the recipe for a delicious, generously-sized smoothie!
