lemon and mint popsicles

Lemon and mint popsicles - easy, vegan, tasty, super healthy, and very refreshing. They are a great summer recipe to enjoy while the sun keeps us very warm.

Using whole foods it's easy to make this treat very healthy. The average popsicles in the shop are filled with sugar and artificial flavorings. Luckily there is nothing easier than homemade, whole-foods popsicles.

You can add some sweetener of choice (like maple syrup) if you prefer to make the popsicle sweet. I like it sour and minty - it's really perfect for summer days!

Make sure you also have a look at peach popsicles and watermelon ones!
