When Barlean’s sent me a box of goodies for a #PopcicleParty, I knew that the recipe had to include strawberries! My daughter Olivia loves to eat them frozen right out of the freezer in the summertime, and I let her because they’re good for her, and, well, it’s hot. Another thing I let her eat whenever are healthy popcicles – even for breakfast! That’s because these popcicles are made with fruit, juice, and some healthy not-so-secret ingredients from Barlean’s.

I love using Barlean’s products because I know that they are amazing quality and have some many great health benefits for me and my family. The Omega Swirls and Greens are the two products we use the most. We make smoothies daily, and I have experimented with a lot of different products. I always come back to Barlean’s because their products provide amazing nutrition with an unbelievably delicious taste.
Using Barlean’s Passion Pineapple Omega Swirl Fish Oil adds a little extra health benefit. These Omega Swirls are a great way to get more Omega 3’s into your diet, especially for picky eaters!
Best of all, they taste seriously yummy! The creamy Omega Swirls are non-GMO, gluten free, sugar free with no artificial flavors, colors or sweeteners, but they are truly delicious. There 14 varieties to choose from. If you want to stick with a tropical flavor for your healthy popcicles, I’d recommend the Passion Pineapple that we used here, or one of these:

Barlean’s makes four varieties of powdered greens:
- Organic Berry Greens
- Superfruit Strawberry Kiwi (used in this recipe for healthy popcicles)
- Chocolate Silk Greens
- Organic Greens Natural Flavor
All of these are non-GMO, gluten free, sugar free, dairy free and completely vegan.
You can add a scoop to water or juice, but our favorite way it to add it to a smoothie mixture.
