In honor of these hot summer days, and with an effort to add more fruit and veggies to Ella’s diet, I have started making my own fruit pops. Some of you may already be doing this, and if so I’d love to hear your favorite recipe! The idea started after throwing together a fruit smoothie no one wanted to drink. With an entire blender of smoothie leftover, I decided to pour a small amount into popsicle containers for a cool and perfect kid friendly summer treat!
Here are a few ideas to get your creativity juices flowing!
Combine 1 cup blueberries + 1 cup strawberries + 1/2 cup frozen peas+ 1/2 cup vanilla yogart+ 1/4 cup apple juice to blender and puree until you have a smooth consistency. Add more juice as needed. Put into popsicle containers and place in freezer!
And here are a few other recipes I found on the internet.
