Green Smoothie Popsicles Recipe

It's Summer time and my kids eat like crap in the Summer time! Please tell me I'm not the only one who refuses to cook! But don't worry, I still make sure they get nutrition. They eat lots of fruit but it's really hard to get them to choke down some veggies. Enter Green Smoothie Popsicles...

Green Smoothie Popsicles... Trick your kids into easting healthy! #smoothies #popsicles
These beauties include dark greens and avocado. Sometimes I add milled flax seeds or chia seeds, protein powder, probiotics, vitamin oils, the possibilities are really endless.

I have one of those fancy blenders that pulverize everything, but I have made these with a regular blender too and it works just fine.

Any green smoothie recipe should work, but here's what I did.

Green Smoothie Popsicles Recipe

1 handful greens (I freeze mine)
3 handfuls frozen fruit (I use a mix containing pineapple, strawberries and mango)
1 cup milk (soy, rice, coconut works just great too)
1 cup orange juice
1 Tbs vanilla
1/2 avocado
1 very ripe banana

Options: If it needs to be sweeter add a little squeeze of agave.

I feel like I have to prove to you that kids will actually eat these... so here you go...

The same kids that turn their noses up at the idea of a green smoothie are all over it when you call it a popsicle! Here's to a healthier Summer!!!

AND I am so excited to be part of the Color Your Summer Series over at Kojo Designs!  My post goes live tomorrow so be sure to check it out.
