These gluten-free, primal, and GAPS diet friendly Apple Pie Popsicles are a healthy, kid-friendly way to celebrate apples and summer!
Apple season is one of my favorite seasons of the year. The weather is starting to cool off (what little bit it does down here in the south), and the leaves begin turning gorgeous colors. And of course, the apples…
While my family loves grabbing an apple and eating it raw, I still love to find other ways to use the delicious fruit. Of course gluten-free apple pie is a favorite, as well as apples in granola, cookies, and scones. And lately, these apple pie popsicles have been immensely enjoyed!
Popsicles have always been a hit with my kids, and they love it when I come up with new flavors for them to try out. Honey peach, coconut and watermelon, strawberry coconut, and of course homemade fudgesicles are some of their favorites.
And I don’t mind whipping up a batch of popsicles for them to enjoy. Homemade popsicles are super easy to make and so much healthier than the store-bought varieties. No added artificial or processed sweeteners, flavors, preservatives, or food colorings in these homemade beauties!
And my 5 kiddos aren’t the only ones excited when I make a batch of popsicles. My husband absolutely LOVES them!
Apple pie popsicles.
These fun little popsicles are perfect for fall and apple season. They’re based off the Apple Pie Smoothie Bowl recipe I posted a few weeks back, which is also a favorite in my family. I don’t put any sweetener in these popsicles, because I think the apples and bananas are sweet enough, but you can feel free to add a little honey, or even maple syrup, if you want.
I also use milk kefir in these pops, as a way to give them a little probiotic boost. If you’re dairy-free, you can use water kefir or coconut milk instead. It will change the flavor, but they’ll still be delicious!
