Frozen fruit desserts are the one slice of summer that we really, truly appreciate and delicious looking ice pops are our absolute favourite! The best part about them is that they are super simple to make and can be made in as many healthy combinations as you may wish. Here are some super fun popsicle combinations to try...

Cucumber and mint ice pops

This ice popsicle is packed with the green goodness of chopped cucumbers, mint and lime. While these ingredients blend together to make one refreshing dessert they also have their benefits.

Benefits: Cucumber is rich in vitamins and fibers, both of which are important to keep you in good shape during summer. While the vitamins help you fight that heat and dehydration the fibers keep your digestive health in check.


Watermelon and ginger popsicles

What is summer without watermelons? And if it’s watermelon with a hint of ginger and lime, frozen into an ice pop you have every reason to devour it.

Benefits: Watermelons are a rich source of vitamins, antioxidants and amino acids all of which help with cardiovascular ailments, reduce body fat and help regulate the action of nerves and muscles in our body. Ginger on the other hand is rich in antioxidants that fight free radicals, helps regulate blood circulation and has antiseptic and antibacterial properties.


Mango and sea salt ice pop

So not every popsicle combination needs to adhere to your health needs. This one, laden in banana and nutella caters to your taste buds but still beats the heavy duty dairy ice cream bars when it comes to its calorie content.

Benefits: Bananas contain potassium, fiber, calcium and several antioxidants all of which come together to keep your digestive health in check, provide for a powerhouse of energy and help fight anemia and blood pressure.


Blueberry and vodka popsicles

A popsicle that is made of a delish fruit and vodka is just perfect for this heat. This one with blueberries is a fun combination of flavours and if you find it difficult to get real blueberries in the Indian markets the frozen canned ones do just as well in a popsicle recipe. You can also use blueberry compote which is also easily available.

Benefits: Blueberries are rich in fiber, potassium, vitamin C and vitamin B6; all of which make way for a healthier heart and low cholesterol.
