Skip the store bought popsicles laden with processed ingredients like refined sugar, preservatives and colors, and instead make these wonderful homemade treats.

The recipe I am sharing with you today takes about five minutes to make (plus freezing time) and is jam packed with incredible healing nutrients. Not to mention how absolutely delicious it is!

Wild blueberries are the star ingredient of this recipe, giving you a phenomenal amount of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants in sweet little packaging. Add the anti-viral and anti-fungal power of the raw honey and coconut and you have a treat that packs serious nutritional punch.

Wild Blueberry & Coconut Popsicles

Ingredients:
2 cups wild blueberries*
2 cups plain unsweetened coconut yogurt
1/4 - 1/2 cup raw honey

*if you can’t find wild blueberries in your freezer section at your supermarket than regular blueberries can be substituted

Preparation:
1. Mix the wild blueberries and raw honey in a bowl together. (You can also pulse them in a blender, if desired).

2. Assemble the popsicles by alternating a little scoop of the coconut yogurt with a little scoop of the wild blueberry mixture into each popsicle mold, repeating as desired until you’ve reached the top. Swirl gently with a spoon to give the popsicles a slightly mixed effect.

3. Add popsicle sticks and/or lids and freeze overnight.

Enjoy!

Pumpkin Seeds are one of nature’s most nourishing foods. They contain high amounts of vitamin E, B-complex, magnesium, zinc, and omega-3 fatty acids. Pumpkin seeds are essential for men’s health and provide significant protection for the prostate gland. They are an excellent source of tryptophan which is critical for good quality sleep and for keeping anxiety and depression at bay. 

The B-complex vitamins in pumpkin seeds work as co-factors in the body to help reduce cholesterol and enhance GABA activity which is also known to reduce anxiety and neurological disorders. Pumpkin seeds also contain anti-inflammatory properties which provide benefit for those that suffer with chronic inflammation such as in sinusitis, arthritis, bursitis, and other autoimmune disorders. 

Pumpkin seeds have high concentrations of phytosterols that can help to inhibit the absorption of cholesterol in the gastrointestinal tract which ultimately can help reduce the bad cholesterol in the body. Pumpkin Seeds have also been known to prevent kidney stones and osteoporosis. 

Pumpkin seed butter is a great and tasty alternative to peanut butter and can be found online and in most health food stores. Raw pumpkin seeds will provide you with the most nutrition and health benefits.
