Because it's too dang hot. Because the air feels like a sweatbox. Because I haven't had a single person turn down a frozen treat in the dead of summer.

Also, these popsicles are healthy and made with all-natural ingredients that just so happen to be vegan friendly. I hate leaving people out, so I took a gigantic step outside of my dairy-infused, butter-laden, carb-centric box to create a treat that everybody can enjoy.

I'll take my cookie now...

In all honesty, these popsicles taste like the real deal. I used what I call the magical fruit, the banana, to create the thick, creamy base of these healthy popsicles. I swear by frozen bananas. You can whip them into healthy ice cream, super thick smoothieshealthy pudding, and these vegan piña colada popsicles.

It's a win-win situation.

I have also fallen in love with coconut cream. My favorite brand is Trader Joe's, along with so many of their other ingredients — Joe and I are pals! The coconut cream is extremely thick and velvety smooth. It helps keep the popsicles thick and creamy after they freeze.

Creamy and dreamy — that's how I like my popsicles.

I don't have kids, so I'm no professional, but I'm betting if you handed them one of these popsicles they'd lick it down to the stick and probably accept a second helping if it were offered. Since these are of the healthy variety, using only the most wholesome ingredients, and are naturally sweetened, you can feel good about feeding them to your offspring and maybe even treating them to two. (I'm pulling for ya, kid.)

I'm usually not one to lay down the law and go full out finger-pointing schoolmarm on you, but frozen bananas are a must for this recipe. Prep them bananas, folks! They'll need at least four hours in the freezer.

Don't let the word "vegan" in the title scare you off. These are some good popsicles.
