Green Smoothie Ice Pops
We don't post about food very often but this one was too good not to share.
We recently found out that my oldest has a milk allergy. She LOVES LOVES LOVES yogurt. I'm talking she would eat it for breakfast lunch and dinner if she could. She would often choose a yogurt tube for her after dinner treat. I had no idea how I was going to replace that. I figured there would be some way to make our own using an alternative to milk. I did a search on Amazon first to see if there was even a DIY yogurt tube out there. Of course there is! What would we do without the internet. I first attempted vanilla pudding with almond milk... operation fail... Blech!!!
My girls have been drinking green smoothies in the morning and love them. I figured why not stick with what works.
This is my girls all time favorite green smoothie... and we have played around with quite a few ingredients.
1 cup Mango chunks
1 cup pineapple chunks
1-2 cups spinach
1-2 cups of water (depending on how thick you want it)
We sometimes throw in some Flax seed.
Getting everything ready.
This is what we used to make the Ice Pops. They are AWESOME!! They come 4 in a box and that includes caps.
Ready to blend.
I put the ice pop containers in a cup to hold them up while we poured in the juice. We used a funnel for less mess.
