Wild Berry Paleo Popsicles

In the last few years, there has been a new food craz that is quickly becoming a household word, “Paleo.” Like many topics, there’s tons of information with lots of contradictions of what IS and what ISN’T PALEO.

Here’s the main idea behind paleo. You only eat what our ancestors would have eaten. Think cave men running around with big sticks. 😉 Okay, maybe not cave men. The basic idea is to eat food that is not processed so no Cheerios, no pasta, and definitely no Rocky Road ice cream and to eat mostly foods that you would hunt or gather.

Think meat, vegetables, fruits, oils and seeds. The reason why this is such a popular diet is because so many people see successful results. They also see results that last. This is a lifestyle change not a crash diet. So, as long as you stay the course so will your waistline.

Think about it? You are cutting out anything with empty calories: pop, coffee, pizza, etc which for some of us can be 70% of our diet.

I wouldn’t call our family paleo because we do enjoy wine, legumes and gluten-free grains such as rice and quinoa. However, our diet is largely paleo because our meals are mostly centered around lean meats and vegetables. We don’t eat grains at every meal. 🙂

Here’s a quick snapshot of what you can eat and can’t eat on the paleo diet. To read more about the paleo diet you can click here.

Aren’t these popsicle molds the cutest. We have had them for over a year and they are amazing. They are SUPER easy to use and I never had to worry about breaking my popsicle molds like I have did with previous brands. If you are curious they are called Qiorange Silicon Fish Molds. I love them because they are smaller so the popsicle is more manageable for smaller children which means less sticky mess for me to clean up. My kids love them because it makes homemade popsicles much more magical. 🙂

Wild Berry Paleo Popsicles
Prep Time:
5 minutes
Cook Time:
8 hours
Total Time:
5 minutes
Yield: 6 large popsicles or 8 little ones depending on mold size
Ingredients
  • 2 cups of frozen or fresh wild berry mix (I used cherries, blueberries, strawberries & pomegranate)
  • 1 can of coconut milk (full fat or lite will both work)
  • 1 ripe frozen banana
Instructions
  1. Pop frozen banana into microwave for about 10 seconds or just long enough to peel skin. Or you can simply run the banana under hot water and peel back the skin.
  2. Place all ingredients into a high power blender. Blend until smooth.
  3. Place wild berry mixture into popsicle molds. Freeze overnight.
Notes

*You may need to run the base of your popsicle mold under warm water to help release the popsicle from the mold and to avoid pulling out only the stick. 🙂

  1. I have a similar recipe with which I make a great smoothie for early morning breakfasts and also for freezing in Popsicle molds for a nice hot afternoon treat.

    Ingredients include, but are not limited to:

    1/2 cup of almond milk
    1/2 cup of fresh squeezed orange juice
    1/2 cup of frozen from fresh strawberries
    1/2 cup of frozen from fresh blueberries
    1/2 cup of frozen from fresh chunked up pineapple
    2 to 3 scoops of chocolate protein powder of your choice, I prefer chocolate Primal Fuel from Mark Sisson’s line of primal supplements on his website.
    For a thicker smoothie or Popsicles, add a ripe banana or any full ripe apple, peeled, cored, and chunked up.

    Blend all ingredients in a blender until smooth and creamy. I usually make 2 batches since I always have to taste test each batch and ……………… well, I drink enough of each batch to be really REALLY sure it’s just the right flavor and consistency for smoothies and frozen treats!!

    Note: There’s no need to add any ice cubes to the blender as the frozen fruit does a splendid job of making a nice frozen breakfast smoothie at full strength. Use your imagination to substitute any other fruit of your own liking, the combinations are endless and always enjoyable.

    1. Hi Tom, this sounds really good. I haven’t tried Primal Fuel but I’ve heard really good things about it. And yes, I totally understand needing to make a double batche. Anytime, our blender gets turned on our two year old comes running from any direction begging for some smoothy too! 🙂

  2. I imagine that the banana adds sweetness as well as a smoother consistency. I am intolerant to bananas so I struggle with so many recipes that call for them ( and there are a lot!!). Any suggestions for a substitute for them?

    thanks

    1. Hi Arlene, great question. You can actually skip the banana and just add more of the wild berry mixture. I would blend the mixture until you get a smoothy consistency and then I would add at least 1 tablespoon of honey or sweetener of choice. If your freeze it you will be good to go.
