In my previous blog post I shared my Immune Boosting Chaga Berry Smoothie Bowl Recipe – one of my favourite breakfasts during the warm summer months. To keep cool during the rest of the day, nothing beats an ice lolly or popsicle. However, store bought ones are high in added sugar, contain artificial sweeteners, flavours and preservatives and are not allergy friendly as they can contain dairy.

importance of using stainless steel popsicle molds
Lots of popsicle molds are made from plastic, which leach chemicals into the popsicles. Plastic can weaken our immune system and cause a range of health problems, such as hormone, respiratory, nervous system, reproductive and developmental problems (1, 2, 3).
