Intro: Smoothie Pops!
Making your own popsicles is easy-peasy. It's also a fun way to fool yourself you're eating dessert when it's really just healthy stuff like yogurt, fruit and the like. Gotcha, taste buds!
Try making these Smoothie Pops from your favorite smoothie recipe (mine follows.)
Step 1: Gather Supplies
Popsicle molds--we have these ones from Tovolo
Fruit, yogurt, and/or juice of your choosing
Flax oil, spirulina, or healthy smoothie-type additives of your choosing
Food processor or blender
Step 2: Make Raw Popsicle Puree
Throw some yogurt, sliced up fruit, juice, healthy additives and whatever else your heart desires into a blender or food processor. Puree.
Step 3: Fill 'em Up
Make sure to leave a little room in the molds to allow for expansion. Add sticks.
Step 4: Freeze!
Put your pops in the freezer for at least 4 hours. Then enjoy your yummy healthy treat anytime of day. Happy summer!
