Making homemade popsicles has become one my son and I’s very favorite things to do in the summer. He is crazy about popsicles (aka sickle pops) and I love having a healthy treat on hand for him and his friends when they’ve been playing outside on a hot day.

We’ve made a lot of different kinds of popsicles between this summer and last and our favorites are healthy homemade fudgesicles, watermelon lime pops, and these peach creamsicles. I also love these popsicles myself for a healthy evening treat!

These couldn’t be easier to make. They have 3 ingredients and can be whipped together in less than 15 minutes. These popsicles work great with fresh or frozen peaches. The layer of cashew cream in the middle makes them such a treat!

I like using this popsicle mold. Once the popsicles are frozen, I run a little warm water on the bottom to get them out. Then I transfer the popsicles to a ziploc bag for longer storage. They are great to have on hand for hot summer days!

I love pasta salad for BBQs, potlucks or just for dinner on a hot summer night! This Tuscan pasta salad is bursting with flavor from kalamata olives and marinated artichokes. It’s also full of asparagus, tomatoes, peas, and red pepper making it much healthier than your average pasta salad.

Everytime I make this pasta salad people ask for the recipe. I’ve recently made it with this gluten-free chickpea fusilli that I found at Costco. It holds up great! With all vegetables and that high protein pasta this pasta salad is a meal in itself. Feel free to use any gluten-free pasta you have on hand.
