Healthy Smoothie Pops
I made smoothies yesterday morning for my sick 3 year old and myself but he didn't feel like eating anything so I froze the extra smoothies into popsicles. The smoothie pops were a hit this afternoon for snack.
I made these extra healthy by adding chia seeds and fresh spinach. See the tiny green flecks. They are tiny flecks of spinach. What a delicious way to eat your greens. I did not add any sweetener to these because I knew we would enjoy them without it, but you could add honey, monk fruit sweetener, whatever you like to taste.
Make your favorite smoothie recipe and freeze in popsicle molds or small paper cups.
I did not measure when making these smoothies, so these amounts are approximations:
2 cups frozen mango
1 cup fresh strawberries
A handful of fresh spinach
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1/2 cup coconut milk
1 T. chia seeds
Optional sweetener of choice
A small amount of water to thin the smoothies probably 1/4 to 1/2 cup
Blend until smoothies reach desired consistency then freeze in molds.

Those look so tasty! My youngest son would love them. He is always asking for smoothies, frozen smoothies would be his favorite!

My toddler doesn't want to eat or drink anything when sick, so I started making smoothies. I love sneaking in healthy, immune boosting items like apple cider vinegar, carrots, etc. I will have to try the spinach next time!
