It’s summer vacation, the heat is on, the kids are out of school, and you’re frankly a little tired of everything. “Where’s my vacation?”
Am I right?
Summer can be as fun as it is hot, humid, and stressful...and it is so easy to fall off the healthy-eating wagon. There are so many delicious treats just SCREAMING YOUR NAME.
It’s like everywhere you go there’s a cocktail, a doughnut, three-layer strawberry-lime ice cream cake. You feel tempted, you reach out, but you stop short because you know deep down: you’ll regret it.
You want ice cream, but you also want a summer body.
Here’s the thing: why not both?
Why not choose a have a guilt-free treat for a change? Let go of that potential regret, leave room for another “cheat meal,” get some greens into the kids, and enjoy the process. It’s true: you can have your (ice cream) cake and eat it too, because:
We created a refreshing green smoothie popsicle that tastes like peppermint candy and sneaks in two portions of greens.
Let me tell you kids loved these and I looked extra master-cheffy serving them at brunch. So, if you’re excited, let’s get smoothie popsicle making!
I know some of you are desperate for the recipe (we’ll get to it in about thirty seconds!) but some of you are going like “ew green smoothie? Vegetable smoothie popsicle?” And that’s what I’d like to address:
This smoothie popsicle recipe is sweet and hides the greens very well. It is a 100% guilt-free way to cool off this summer and have a tasty treat without breaking your promises (to yourself) or negatively affect your weight or diet.
Why eat “an apple a day to keep the doctor away” when you can have an Organifi Green Smoothie Popsicle instead? What’s even better, because they’re sweet, minty, and look very cool (pun intended) they are a sure hit at family gatherings - and with your own skeptic taste buds.
It's cold, refreshing, creamy and satisfying! Plus the ingredients will infuse your body with immune boosting vitamins and minerals without sacrificing any of the fun ice cream taste you love.
Lastly, if you have a green juice a day or a green smoothie every once in a while, this smoothie popsicle is also a fantastic way to spice things up and keep you from getting bored.
What you’ll need:
To further enhance the health benefits of these popsicles, you can consider adding:
That’s it! They’re so easy to make and so palatable, if you want to get really creative, you can fill half of the popsicle with coconut lemonade and a half with the green smoothie for a two-toned, extra refreshing, smoothie popsicle version.
All of our green smoothie popsicle ingredients have outstanding health benefits, and we chose them because the combination results in a super-charged green smoothie alternative that everyone loves. My favorite key elements are coconut milk and Kiwi.
So what makes our smoothie popsicle so healthy?
Love this idea? We have other healthy, nutritious, and easy to make recipes for summer treats that keep you extra chill.
To quickly cool off on a hot afternoon, pop one of these Organifi Green Smoothie Popsicles into your mouth or try one of our other icy refreshments; they’re most likely healthier than most seemingly harmless fitness drinks. However, if you do go for another “pleasure” drop the guilt and enjoy it.
And yes, we’re talking about food here! (We keep it PG people!)
Remember, food is neither good nor bad. And guilt or shame should never accompany your meals or snacks, it’s OK to have a less-than-ideal meal every once in a while. Use these recipes as a way to keep you on track to meet your goals, cultivate a healthy relationship with food, and to nourish your body in gentle ways.

Deprivation sucks, and at Organifi we don’t believe in it. We believe in making lifestyle changes that make being healthy your way of life, and not some sort of punishment! You’ll get better results when you treat yourself with care.
