Now that the weather is warming up (FINALLY), Summer time obsessions like the park and POPSICLES are back in full force! My toddler son was recently introduced to Popsicles by a family member, and OF COURSE, like all things loaded with sugar (that I have actively been avoiding giving him) he loved them!
In my typical, “I’m-not-a regular- mom, I’m- a- cool- mom, but- a- healthy- mom” fashion, instead of buying him store bought popsicles, I figured I could create some killer home- made versions that he would love, but I wouldn’t feel bad about giving him when he asks for them (every five minutes!). Delicious AND Healthy popsicles that my child will actually eat. YES PLEASE!
Here’s What you Need:
- 1 cup Watermelon
- 2 cups plain Greek Yogurt
- 1 cup frozen strawberries (or mixed berries)
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 TBS stevia ( if desired- I didn’t add this, but feel free to!)
- 1/4 cup mint, roughly chopped
- popsicle mold, I love this one from Bella Casa
- Combine everything in a blender and blend on high until thoroughly mixed (you should not be able to tell there was spinach and mint added!)
- Pour into popsicle mold
- Freeze for 8-10 hours
- If you have extra mix, store in the fridge in airtight container and use to re- fill mold when necessary ( I kept my mix for 3-4 days and it was fine!)
- Enjoy feeling like a hero while your mini eats vegetables in their popsicle!
