Healthy Berry Ice Cream Pops
Say hello to your favorite summer dessert – Healthy Berry Ice Cream Pops! In this easy, scrumptious, DIY recipe; we’ve got creamy Simple Truth Low Cow Lite Ice Cream swirled with berry goodness to make for the perfect chilly treat!
It’s no secret that I have a raging sweet tooth. Death by chocolate actually sounds like the perfect way to go! Ha! 🤣 And when the temperatures are soaring, all I want is ice cream everything. But, usually, ice cream and beach vacations don’t mix. Well, there’s a new ice cream in town. With Simple Truth Low Cow Lite Ice Cream, there’s no problem if you find yourself eating a full pint of ice cream every single day!
Simple Truth Low Cow Lite Ice Cream is exclusively available at Kroger. For these ice cream pops, I used Vanilla Bean and Lemon Cake, but any of the other 4 flavors (Chocolate, Sea Salt Caramel, Mint Chocolate Chip and Birthday Cake) could be used too. Low Cow is sold at such a great price, you’re going to want to pick up every flavor!
Low Cow Lite Ice Cream is absolutely delectable. It’s rich, creamy and actually tastes like real ice cream without any type of chalky aftertaste. I had a hard time holding off on eating it while making these ice cream pops!
It’s also high in protein (24g per pint) and contains 80% less fat and 60% fewer calories than regular ice cream. I love that it comes from Simple Truth, too, because I can always trust it will be high quality and FREE FROM those not so great ingredients.
These Healthy Berry Ice Cream Pops could not be easier. It requires just 3 ingredients and only about 10 minutes of hands-on prep! The rest of the magic happens in the freezer while you’re airing up your pool floaties and slathering yourself with sunscreen. Summer, it’s a beautiful thing.
NO popsicle molds? No worries, the little paper cups and wooden sticks work like a charm. From my experience, they work even better than those fancy pants popsicle molds. If you’ve ever had the popsicle get stuck in the mold and break off, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
The process is simple, too. Just blend, mash or dice up some of your favorite berries. I used strawberries with vanilla bean ice cream and blueberries with lemon cake ice cream. Divide the pureed berries and softened ice cream among your cups, add a little granola or cookie crumble and then stick your wooden stick in the center. Let the pops freeze for a few hours and that’s it!
The result is a seriously delectable, a healthier popsicle that’s basically ice cream on a stick. You’ll likely want to eat all of them at once – trust me. Be sure to have a friend on standby for help (in both restraint and sampling).
I hope y’all LOVE these Popsicles! They’re:
& Oh-so delicious
These would make the perfect treat to have on hand when you’re craving something sweet throughout the week, or for summer cookouts and dinner parties. Trust me, they’re a guaranteed good time.

Easy, 3-ingredient Berry Ice Cream Pops with creamy Low Cow ice cream and sweet berry goodness! Perfectly sweet, and ideal for summer!
- 2 pints Simple Truth Low Cow Lite Ice Cream softened (any flavor)
- 2 cups fresh or frozen berries puréed (I used a combination of strawberries and blueberries)
- 1/2 cup granola or crushed cookie (optional)
- 6 Small paper cups
- 6 Wooden popsicle sticks
- Let the ice cream soften.
While it softens, purée fruit in a blender (another option is to use diced berries, if you don't have a blender on hand).
Divide the puréed berries evenly to the bottom of cups. Divide the softened ice cream into each cup and on top of berries. Reserve half of the puréed berries for a layered look.
Top each cup with granola. (for a layered pop, first top with reserved puréed berries and then with granola)
- Stick a popsicle stick in the center.
- Put the cups on a tray and place in the freezer. Freeze 2-3 hours, or until set.
- To eat, simply pull the paper cup off and enjoy.
*The granola may also be placed first in the cup or layered in the ice cream. There's really no wrong way to assemble!
*1 pint of ice cream will make 3 pops.
Enjoy my other favorite summer treats!
