Depending on where you live, it’s getting hot out there! (And maybe even humid — yuck).
That’s when a nice frozen treat really hits the spot. Like a popsicle. Especially when it’s made out of fruit and fresh ingredients you put in yourself. Yum!
Don’t have a popsicle mold? No problem! Grab some cups, muffin tins, loaf pans, or ice cube trays. Popsicles can come in all sizes and shapes.
Here’s what you’ll need:
A container to shape popsicles — ice cube tray, muffin tin, loaf pan, or cups.
Popsicle filling — yogurt, fruits, juice, puddings (see below).
Popsicle sticks — standard popsicle stick, spoons, or anything that is over three inches.
Plastic wrap or tinfoil — this will hold up the popsicle stick while it freezes.
A few common kitchen supplies — a mixing bowl, spatula, and something to mash or cut up the fruit (a sharp knife).
A healthy boost — a daily dose of your favorite PuraTHRIVE vitamins (8 pumps = 1/2 tsp on 2oz bottles).
Try mashed fruit (including blueberries, strawberries, peaches, mangos, raspberries, kiwi, pineapple, oranges, and bananas) blended with juice (pulp in or out), your favorite yogurt, or even pudding.
You can also add your favorite PuraTHRIVE Micelle Liposomal vitamins for added flavor and nutrients — without adding any sugar!
Try B12 for a berry flavor, D3 for a citrus flavor, Radiant C for an orange zest, or B Complex for a banana citrus tang!
Try out these recipe ideas below:
Iced Coffee Popsicle
Combine 1/4 tsp vanilla extract, 1/4 – 1/2 cup cream or milk of choice, 1 tbsp maple syrup (or preferred sweetener to taste), and 1 cup of brewed coffee. Blend ingredients, pour into molds, and freeze. Great for that coffee fix without the warm drink!
Frozen Fruity Popsicle
1 cup mashed fruit of your choice, 1/2 tsp PuraTHRIVE D3/B12 OR 1 tbsp Radiant C/B Complex, 1/2 cup juice, 1/2 cup plain yogurt. Blend ingredients, pour into molds, and freeze.
Line your popsicle containers with plastic wrap (optional).
Create your popsicle filling by adding all ingredients to a blender and blending until smooth.
Fill each section with popsicle filling and smooth top with the spatula.
Cover container with plastic wrap or tin foil.
Place a stick in the center of each section. If you are using a loaf pan, place sticks 1 inch apart (recommend two sticks per slice and cut between sticks for more manageable portions).
Freeze for at least 5 hours.
If using a loaf pan, with a sharp knife slice loaf pan popsicles 1 inch apart, leaving sticks in the center of each slice.
Let thaw for 2 minutes before removing.
Store in a freezer bag.
There are many different ways for you to make this delicious treat! If you have a favorite smoothie recipe, try freezing it and having it as a popsicle! It’s a great way to not only cool down, but to get a boost of nutrition!
Our favorite PuraTHRIVE product to add is our Radiant Vitamin C. The orange flavoring is absolutely delicious. On top of that, it can give you the vitamin C your body needs since it is in an absorbable form!

These cookies may track things such as how long you spend on the site and the pages that you visit so we can continue to produce engaging content.
A persistent cookie - remains on a computer, unless it expires or the cookie cache is cleared. It tracks visitors. Metrics associated with the Google __utma cookie include: first visit (unique visit), last visit (returning visit). This also includes Days and Visits to purchase calculations which afford ecommerce websites with data intelligence around purchasing sales funnels.
__utmb Cookie & __utmc Cookie
These cookies work in tandem to calculate visit length. Google __utmb cookie demarks the exact arrival time, then Google __utmc registers the precise exit time of the user.
Because __utmb counts entrance visits, it is a session cookie, and expires at the end of the session, e.g. when the user leaves the page. A timestamp of 30 minutes must pass before Google cookie __utmc expires. Given__utmc cannot tell if a browser or website session ends. Therefore, if no new page view is recorded in 30 minutes the cookie is expired.
This is a standard 'grace period' in web analytics. Ominture and WebTrends among many others follow the same procedure.
Cookie __utmz monitors the HTTP Referrer and notes where a visitor arrived from, with the referrer siloed into type (Search engine (organic or cpc), direct, social and unaccounted). From the HTTP Referrer the __utmz Cookie also registers, what keyword generated the visit plus geolocation data.
This cookie lasts six months. In tracking terms this Cookie is perhaps the most important as it will tell you about your traffic and help with conversion information such as what source / medium / keyword to attribute for a Goal Conversion.
Google __utmv Cookie lasts "forever". It is a persistant cookie. It is used for segmentation, data experimentation and the __utmv works hand in hand with the __utmz cookie to improve cookie targeting capabilities.
