As a kid, a huge part of summer was making popsicles with my family. So, with summer approaching, I thought I'd search out some vegan popsicle recipes! I couldn't believe how many cool recipes I'd found, just stuff I'd never have thought about throwing together!
Certainly not together in a popsicle. I can see how they are all going to be really delicious though, and I can't wait to start trying all these different vegan popsicle recipes!
What kid doesn't like fudgsicles? I mean, seriously! I don't think I've ever met a kid (or adult for that matter) who dislikes these yummy creamy, chocolately goodies. This recipe from the blog A Lovely Side Project uses avocados and cacao powder to get that tasty, creamy fudge consistency we all know and want. Brilliant, right?
This recipe uses full fat coconut milk and matcha to make a really creamy, sweet, aromatic and vaguely grassy popsicle. I haven't had a chance to personally try matcha in much of anything, but I've heard such good things about it and I'm really quite obsessed with tea in general. Which means this just went up towards the top of "things to try" for this summer. The gal over at 40 Aprons really did a great job with this one!

Alright, this one is for all you coffee nerds out there. Though I might not personally be much of a coffee person, even I can see how this would be really tasty and refreshing on a hot day. Who knows, maybe these popsicles will be what converts me from a tea freak to a coffee nerd. Only time will tell! Either way, there's no denying the awesome woman over at Food, Pleasure and Health really did a great job with this vegan popsicle recipe.
This is another yummy recipe for when you're wanting a creamy, sweet treat. Dates make for a delicious caramel-like swirl, they are sweet and a bit salty. Plus, they can be family friendly for you and the kids, or, if you want to be daring or have an "adults only" evening, you could throw in a little bit of bourbon for an extra kick. The Minimalist Baker really outdid herself with this one!
I think these watermelon popsicles from Eat Within Your Means are more along the lines of what we think of when talking about making popsicles at home. At least, they are what comes to MY mind. Granted, we used to make popsicles out of koolaid when I was just a wee little thing. Anyway! These might look a bit more like traditional "homemade" popsicles, but they have their own twist to them! I never would have thought to combine thai basil with watermelon! Go figure.

Here's a good, healthy popsicle recipe for you and the kids! They'll also make decent snacks too, so you can just grab them out of the freezer in a pinch. Almond butter, bananas, you can add in some cocoa powder if you'd really like as well! The lady over at Delish Knowledge really did a great job coming up with these yummy snackable treats!
