Healthy Vegan Creamsicles, Two Ways

by Heidi @ Food Doodles on

Today everything is behind schedule.ย  This morning we decided to go on a quick road trip to get my husband some much needed new work boots which ended up taking most of the day even though we only did a little shopping.ย  It was nice to get out and do something out of the ordinary ๐Ÿ™‚ย  And it was even nicer to drive through the beautiful mountains this time of year.ย  The summit we went over is one of the highest summits you can drive over in Canada.ย  It was fun to see the snow and an icy lake surrounded by fog at the very top of the summit but it’s even nicer to come back home where everything has been thawed for a while.

In other news, I was so excited earlier this week to find out I’ve been featured on the Women’s Health Magazine website.ย  It’s such an honor to be featured in the What We’re Reading This Week section.ย  Thank you so much to Women’s Health for the link!

Last week I made some popsicles to distract my toddler from the brightly – artificially – colored popsicles he sees.ย  I actually only made 6 of each which you can do by halving the fruit layers and making the full coconut layer for one recipe.ย  We also make popsicles out of the green smoothies we make or any kind of smoothies, which you can find at the bottom of my recently updated recipe page.

Oh, these look like the perfect treats for summer! Whenever I make a trek to Whole Foods in Nashville (about an hour drive for me), I always get a “Chilly Pop” to go. They are locally made yogurt pops and come in about 723 different flavors…ok, so I am exaggerating a teensy bit here! ๐Ÿ˜‰ I really need to get a popsicle mould of my own so that I can have these anytime I want them!

Oooh yum ๐Ÿ˜€ Even when there’s only a few options I always make it seem like there’s a ton. I can never decide even if there’s only two! Haha. I think we’re popsicle mold obsessed, we have a whole bunch of different ones. I love them! I’m making a note in my notebook right now to make some with yogurt next ๐Ÿ˜€

And kids love them ๐Ÿ˜€ Actually, I love them too. I’d probably make them just for myself if I didn’t have kids, haha.
Thank you!

Congrats on the Magazine Heidi! If you don’t have the issue already, you should snag one fast, keep it as a keep-sake ๐Ÿ™‚

MMM, Your niece/nephew really wants one of those mango ones now… Hey where did you get those molds? The only ones I’ve seen come out round, and I find are hard to hold onto…

Hey would you like some raspberries to try this with? I blended up a bunch this morning still frozen, and got a ice-cream like consistency, with just the frozen fruit… Which I promptly added to pancake batter!

Thanks ๐Ÿ˜€ It’s actually just on the website, it’s not in the magazine.
I actually got those molds from Extra Foods last year. I’ll let you know if I see them again. Raspberries would be awesome in these. I’ll have to come grab some because I have a couple other ideas too ๐Ÿ˜€ Mmm raspberry + pancakes? Yum!

I have to come to town later today, I’ll drop some off at your house. I’ll bring you some blueberries and saskatoons too… mmm I can’t wait until the weather warms up, so I can pick some more saskatoons off of the bush behind the shack!

OK, sounds good. If you get this message beforehand you don’t need to bring saskatoons, I don’t like them very much and I don’t really know what to use them for so they might be wasted on me. See ya later and thank you!
