Ginger Berry Popsicles (naturally paleo, vegan, gluten-free)

These ginger berry popsicles only have five ingredients and are naturally paleo, 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.

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!

    Hey, these sound great! Do you think you could use powdered ginger in a pinch? And if so how much?

      Hi there! Thanks. :) Most definitely! It can be quite potent so I recommend starting off with 1/4 teaspoon and adding more to taste. Enjoy! :)

    During the summer I eat a popsicle almost every single night. I LOVE THEM! The addition of ginger would suck me right in. My stomach always feels “blah” so I think the ginger would totally help!

    The only popsicles I ever at as a kid were the one we got at the end of the day at camp and they’d leave you a sticky, food colored mess. Ice cream was my thing, it wasn’t until I started making my own that I enjoyed them again. Pureed fruit and your own flavoring is so the way to go. This looks like a great healthy after dinner sweet treat.

      Same here! Now that I think about it, those popsicles were gross. And they still seem to be the market leader! Baffling. Thank goodness they’re so easy to make. :)

    Such a gorgeous and vibrant color! I have always loved popsicles. The added ginger would be a great tummy soother for my kids.

    I’ve always loved popsicles and I love homemade ones even more now that I’m older! I love that popsicle mold that you used! I’m going to have to snatch one of those of myself!

    Now that’s an ingredient list I can get on board with. This would have been the best treat when I was pregnant, I basically had everything w/ ginger in it for the nausea!

    Oh man – it makes me cringe to see the ingredients I used to consume in my popsicles as a child. Yikes! These are my kind of popsicles. They are so easy to make at home and so fun to eat!

      Isn’t it terrible?! Why is all of that necessary when they’re so easy to make with natural stuff?

    Or you could make the whole recipe and have enough for 2 smoothies so your husband could have one, too… I usually don’t have much use for popsicles, but smoothies are my favorite breakfast or snack. This one sounds great. And I might just have to invest in a popsicle mold for while we’re at the beach where it’s hot and humid – like it is right now. Too bad I can’t just wish them into being and have them appear in my freezer.

      Oh, yes. Making enough smoothie for the husband is a nice idea. :D I admit I don’t normally care for popsicles but when it’s too hot to really do anything, I love them! I hope you’re having a nice time at the beach. :)
