I'm a chocolate-loving nutritionist, pre & postnatal coach, doula and let's face it- total birth nerd 🤓. I'm here to help you cut through mommy-marketing and pinterest perfection to confidently cultivate a pregnancy and postpartum experience you totally love.
Our popsicle game is strong around here. I especially love these paleo Very Berry Creamsicles because they are intentionally packed these with plenty of nutrient dense ingredients, like creamy coconut milk, antioxidant rich berries, and gut healing collagen peptides. When I was pregnant with my first kiddo, popsicles got me through some gnarly morning sickness all the way through third trimester sweet treat cravings. After my summer babe was born, popsicles were a great one-handed nursing fuel. There seem to be lots of barriers to eating exactly how you want during pregnancy and early postpartum, so making something as simple as popsicles a whole-food, nutrient dense snack is a lifesaver.
These berry creamsicles call for Vital Proteins Vanilla Collagen Creamer. This is one of my favorite products from Vital Proteins; it combines powdered coconut milk, real vanilla bean and collagen peptides from grass-fed cows. You can find it online or in stores, in single serve packs or in bulk containers. If you have single serve packs, you’ll need two for this recipe.
These popsicles get all their natural sweetness from the berries and coconut, making them a great kid-friendly treat!
