Gluten-free, sugar-free homemade popsicles

Summer is definitely here and our house is the place to be. The neighborhood boys congregate on our trampoline –with the sprinklers aimed at it for a good cool down and a great deal of healthy fun.

With all of this activity I keep the food flowing morning, noon and night. From the time they arrive until dinner (sometimes a bunch of them stay for the evening meal too) I am setting out munchies –snacks, lunch, etc. They really are a hungry bunch of rascals.

To keep them fueled between meals, I’ve been making up batches of these super healthy, natural popsicles from Amy Green’s book Simply Sugar and Gluten-Free: 180 Easy and Delicious Recipes You Can Make in 20 Minutes or Less. I made a big batch of these frozen treats last night and they’re already gone today. Amy’s popsicle recipe is absolutely genius!

Why do I like to serve these popsicles to my boys and their friends? First, they contain high protein almond butter, second, they’re full of anti-oxidant rich unsweetened cocoa powder and finally, they’re fruit sweetened. Here’s my version of Amy’s recipe, I hope you like it as much as the boys and their friends did.

2 large bananas
¼ cup creamy roasted almond butter
¼ cup water
2 tablespoons cacao powder
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
¼ teaspoon NuNaturals Stevia


  1. Mix all ingredients in a Vitamix
  2. Pour “popsicle juice” into molds, adding holders or wooden popsicle sticks
  3. Freeze overnight
  4. Serve to your children and all of their friends

    Hello Elana,
    Thank you for sharing this recipe. “Not only for kids,” I’m thinking! :D
    I’m going to give this a try. It’ll give me some protein AND cool me down between activities. Thanks!
