With summer right around the corner, I thought I would experiment with making homemade popsicles for E. And if I was going to go through the trouble of making them myself, I figured I would make sure they were packed with good stuff!
Fruit and Veggie Pops
yields approximately 12 oz.; I filled the popsicle molds (I used and recommend the Nuby Garden Fresh Fruitsicle Frozen Pop Tray) and had the leftovers as a green smoothie for myself.
- 3/4 c. greens (I used a kale and spinach blend)
- 1/4 c. blueberries
- 12 strawberries, hulled
- 1/2 c. water
- 1/2 c. orange juice
Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour into the popsicle mold and freeze until set. To remove the popsicles from the mold, run the mold under warm water for 30 seconds or so.
