Dream up some summer fun with these 40+ dairy-free popsicle recipes to beat the summer heat! There’s something here for everyone, adults and kids alike, with fruity popsicles, fudgesicles, and creamsicles… all dairy-free and either naturally sweetened or completely sugar-free!
Nothing delights a child quite like mama (or daddy) whipping out a tray of popsicles on a hot summer’s day! As I write, I can picture my little boys slurping the drips off their fingers (blissfully unaware of the drips running down their tummies) and asking “Can I have another one?” before they’ve even finished their first.
In this round-up of dairy-free popsicles, you can take your pick of fruity popsicles, creatively creamy (yet dairy-free) creamsicles, or dipped-in-decadence fudgsicles… all deliciously and icily cold, of course.
These recipes will satisfy children and adults alike, whether it’s a pool day, an afternoon at the splash pad, or a sunny morning in the comfort of your own backyard. Or… I hear many moms like to pop their popsicle-enjoying children in the bathtub for a 100% mess-free popsicle experience! 😉
