It’s nearly impossible to think of summer without thinking of popsicles. Trump the flavor and nutrition of anything you can buy in a store with this homemade smoothie version. Feel free to substitute any kind of fruit you have on-hand, especially that which is super ripe and needs to be eaten quickly. For another different spin, you can also utilize coconut milk or plain yogurt instead of almond milk.
Molds are readily available online and in many stores during the summer months. The size and number of your molds will ultimately determine the amount of smoothie you make. This recipe fills six 10 oz. molds, with a full cup leftover - perfect for keeping your kid(s) happy until their pops have frozen!
- 2 c. unsweetened almond milk
- 1 kiwi, scooped out
- 1 c. strawberries, de-stemmed
- 1 large or 2 small mangos, cut and flesh cubed out
Place all ingredients in a blender.
Blend on high for one minute, and pour into popsicle molds.
Place carefully in freezer until frozen.
Hand out on a hot summer day for a cool treat you and your little (and big!) ones will love.
Happy summer, and as K-Bear says, it’s all about “My pop!”
