Happens here everyday.
Off I went to the local dollar store and bought some of the cutest popsicles molds in the shape of rockets and ring pops and others that were circular and square. Then I looked in my freezer where I stock pile frozen fruit to top my yogurt, add to a fun drink or make my morning smoothies. A little mix of this and that, a few juices and a couple hours in the freezer and I had a summer assortment of some great popsicles!
Here are our summer favourites, kids tested and Healthy Mom approved. Enjoy!!
Blueberry Yogurt – In a blender combine blueberry juice or cocktail, a handful of fresh or frozen blueberries and a few scoops of plain or vanilla yogurt. If they sit for awhile in the popsicle molds before going in the freezer they separate and create a neat layering effect.
Watermelon & Raspberries – Use up that leftover watermelon by putting big chunks in your blender and adding a handful of fresh or frozen raspberries. So good and such a vibrant red! Use as many raspberries as you want!
Honeydew Lime – My kids are not huge honeydew melon fans but when blended with some lime juice (from real limes or concentrate) and frozen in a popsicle mold, they love it! If it isn’t sweet enough, add some maple syrup.
Pineapple, Orange, Banana – This one is a breakfast smoothie on a stick! Use as much of each ingredient as you like in the blender, remembering that a little banana goes a long way. Fresh, frozen or even canned pineapple will work.
