There is nothing like an ice-cold bite of a refreshing sorbet or popsicle to end a hot summer day. And when you’ve infused them with the best essential oils on the planet, you can even enjoy them guilt-free.
I wanted to share with you a few of my family’s favorite healthy popsicle recipes with essential oils.
First up is technically not a popsicle! But we absolutely love this sorbet recipe. It has a dash of Lemon Vitality essential oil for the smoothest-ever lemon flavor!
- 2 cups water
- 1 1/2 cups organic evaporated cane juice crystals
- 2 drops Lemon Vitality
- 1 cup fresh lemon juice
Create a syrup by combining water and cane juice crystals in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until the crystals are dissolved, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Combine syrup, Lemon Vitality, and lemon juice in a medium-sized glass or stainless steel bowl and mix until thoroughly combined. Cover and chill for two to three hours. Churn in an ice cream maker according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Cover and freeze until ready to serve.
Did you know? Lemon Vitality provides great support to the circulatory system.
Citrus Coconut Popsicles
Citrus Coconut Popsicles are the perfect way to cool down on those HOT summer nights! Need a mold? I love this silicone popsicle mold.
- 1 can of full-fat coconut milk
- 1 cup of orange juice or orange pineapple juice (get creative!!!)
- 1/3 cup (or to taste) agave or sweetener of choice
- 1-2 drops of Lime Vitality or Citrus Fresh Vitality essential oil
Directions: Blend coconut milk, agave, and Lime Vitality essential oil. Pour mixture into popsicle mold, dividing evenly. Place in freezer for ten minutes; then top with juice. Freeze again for 30 minutes. Insert popsicle sticks. Continue freezing until firm.
Did you know? Lime Vitality supports your digestive, immune, and respiratory systems. Citrus Fresh Vitality supports your immune system.

NingXia Red Popsicles
- 1/2 banana
- 1/2 apple
- 1/2 cup frozen berries
- 1/2 cup spinach or other vegetable (optional)
- 6 oz of NingXia Red*
Directions: Blend all the ingredients; pour into popsicle molds. I love dropping a few unblended berries into each mold to add some fun fruit texture to the popsicles. Freeze until firm. Enjoy!
*Can be substituted for 4 oz. NingXia Red and 2 oz. orange juice.
Did you know? NingXia Red is insanely high in antioxidants. NingXia wolfberries are one of the fruits highest on the ORAC scale. The ORAC scale measures antioxidant levels. For more information about the ORAC scale, google it. Just 1-2 ounces a day of NingXia Red will give your body the antioxidants it needs. The best part is that kids beg for this stuff! It’s tasty!
Having an antioxidant-rich diet is REALLY good for your health. You could certainly eat a bunch of fruits and veggies that are high in antioxidants, but sometimes it’s hard to get the quantity you really need. Our busy schedules make this tough! Plus, you might have a picky eater on your hands, am I right? Daily battle for many!
