Portable Paleo Popsicles by Thriving on Paleo

We all have seen Otter Pops/Icicles/Freeze Pops/Ice Pops/Whatever you want to call 'ems – the portable popsicles that kids love and are oh so refreshing on a hot summer's day.

Did you know however, that you can buy empty sleeves to make your own? They are called Zipzicles and they allow endless possibilities for your own flavor concoctions. No need to feed your kids the hyperactivity-causing food dyes and other crap from the commercial pops!

Portable Popsicle wrappers by Zipzicles

I've been using these for a few years and we absolutely love them.

Considering I just use fruits and other healthy ingredients I really don't hesitate to give them as treats, but the kids still think they are getting something special! Win win 🙂

They are BPA-free and reusable, so they are safe and not terrible for the environment. I totally wash ours out and reuse them with no issues. You can buy them on Amazon.

These are several of the recipes I came up with to use in them that we make regularly. They are all Paleo, AIP, and processed stuff-free.
