While blueberry popsicles are certainly a treat on their own, this Blueberry Salted Caramel Popsiclerecipe from The Healthy Maven turns the frozen snack extra indulgent in a way that's still healthy.

In place of using actual caramel sauce or syrup, the recipe recreates the rich and creamy flavors of caramel using soaked dates, date water, coconut oil and vanilla extract. This mixture is combined with sea salt, blueberries and coconut milk to form a substantial base for hardening in the freezer. The gluten-free, sugar-free, vegan and paleo popsicles come out of the freezer in marble patterns, with some of the dark "caramel" sections swirled throughout.

While caramel and blueberries are commonly combined in baked goods, this icy pairing provides a whole new and healthy way to enjoy both flavors at once.
