Summer is here to stay for the next few months and with temperatures soaring, my kids’ appetites have already started taking a hit. Keeping them hydrated with summer coolers is a great idea. But one step better is making popsicles with different fruits and vegetables. They’re happy eating something cold and I’m happy that they’re slurping on something that is homemade and packed with nutrition. Win-win for all of us.

My kids love making popsicles with me. It’s a great activity to keep them busy. With my kids the rule is what they help me make, they have to eat -so I don’t get any complaints about fruits being in their popsicles. We have some super popsicle hacks that every mom should know, have a look!

These are some of the popsicles that make their home in my freezer every summer. Try them out and tell me how your family loved it.

  • 3 Cups Plain Yoghurt or 200 ml Coconut Milk
  • 4-5 Ripe Mangoes – frozen (to blend plus a few chunks for garnish)
  • 1/2 Cup Sugar Or Honey


  • Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend to a smooth consistency.
  • Add mango chunks to the smoothie.
  • Pour the mixture into popsicle moulds.
  • Place the popsicle mould in the freezer for about 4 hours or until completely frozen.


  • 1 Cup Chickpeas soaked, cooked & skin removed
  • 1/4 Cup Peanut Butter/Almond Butter
  • 2 Cups Thick Coconut Milk
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/3 Cup Date Syrup Or Raw Honey
  • 1/4 Cup Cocoa Powder
  • 11/2 Large Spotty Bananas


  • Add all the ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth and freeze them in popsicle moulds. This tastes like chocolate kulfi really!! Enjoy!

Note: Removing the skin of cooked chickpeas hides the chickpea flavour. Time-consuming but totally worth it. If you intend to make it richer refrigerate the coconut milk and separate the coconut milk fat from the water and use just the coconut part.

  • 5 Cups Cubed Seedless Watermelon
  • 1 Tbsp fresh Mint Leaves chopped
  • 1 Tbsp freshly squeezed Lemon Juice 
  • 1 tbsp Honey (optional)


  • Add the cubed watermelon to a blender, followed by chopped fresh mint and lime juice. (add the honey if your watermelon isn’t too sweet or you just want to add a little extra sweetness)
  • Blend until well pureed.
  • To remove the bits of watermelon and mint leaves, press the blended mixture through fine sieve. This will give you a smooth mixture.
  • Pour the liquid into popsicle moulds and freeze for 3-5 hours to set.


  • 3 ripe Avocados (medium sized)
  • 1 1/2 Cup Milk
  • 4 Tbsp Sweetened Condensed Milk
  • 1 – 2 Tsp Honey or Agave syrup if needed
  • 1/2 Cup good quality Dark Chocolate – chopped and melted in a double boiler or in the microwave


  • In a blender or food processor, puree avocado, milk, and sweetened condensed milk.  Taste mixture.  If it is not sweet enough for your liking, add honey or agave syrup as needed.
  • The mixture may be slightly thick. You can add more milk to thin it a bit if you feel its too thick.
  • Pour mixture into moulds until almost full.
  • Place filled moulds in the freezer for at least 3 hours, or until the popsicles are solid.
  • Dip frozen avocado popsicles in melted chocolate.  They will drip a bit till the chocolate solidifies. Put it back in the freezer for a bit longer. You can also drizzle melted chocolate over popsicles.
