When the weather starts getting warmer, you're going to start craving cold foods. Ice cream might come to mind, but it can be heavy, full of sugars, and hard to make at home without a machine. On the flip side, popsicles are easy to make with or without a mold at home. Popsicles aren't just a great way to cool down, but are also a good way get in your daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Read on for a wide variety of healthy popsicle recipes that will help cool you down this summer.

These tart yet sweet popsicles are low in fat and high in protein. You can also switch out raspberries for blueberries or strawberries—or use all three berries.

Naturally sweetened with dates, these creamy pops will give you plenty of fiber and good fats (thanks to coconut milk).

These popsicles might not be a true mango lassi (no one’s stopping you from adding the proper spices), but it will curb your cravings for one in just three simple ingredients. Plus, fiber and probiotics are good for your digestive system.

5. Blue Spirulina Popsicles

Spirulina is all the craze these days. Aside from tinting blue smoothie bowls and homemade mermaid toasts, spirulina contains 60 to 70% of its dry weight in protein and has significant amounts of calcium, vitamins, iron, and potassium. Superfood popsicle? Count me in!

6. Rainbow Smoothie Popsicles

Honeydew is sweetest during the summer months (depending on where you live), and it comes with potassium levels higher than that of bananas, lots of vitamin C, and high water content to help you stay hydrated. These pops are legit.

Sounds funky, but jalapeño gives this popsicle a nice, spicy kick. And if you pick a sweet watermelon, no one will even know you added tomatoes to this recipe.

The good thing about these recipes is that they're versatile and so easy to swap out ingredients for your favorite fruits and vegetables. Plus, they're tasty and can help take your mind off the heat.
