The hot days of summer are still here and there is nothing better then a frozen treat! We LOVE ice cream in this household. My favourite is Mint Chocolate Chip or something with a little bit of chocolate, brownie, cookie dough and fudge! You know…the one with the least amount of calories. Oh and of course it has to be in a delicious waffle cone dipped in sprinkles. Mmmmm sprinkles!
Isla loves her morning spinach and fruit smoothies. Shocker I know, but the green drink doesn’t seem to scare her and she chugs it down like nobodies business. The other day it was hotter than usual and there was no ice cream to be found in the house so I decided to make my own little frozen smoothie treat for all of us. They were delicious, easy to make, healthy and Isla couldn’t get enough of slurping, sucking and basically swimming in the scrumptious stickiness that later covered her whole body.
Here is the recipe I enjoy using. I don’t measure really so I go by handfuls. Please feel free to use your favourite fruits and veggies. You could also add yogurt, chia seeds or flax seeds. Anything to add an extra pop of goodness and nutrition.
- Handful of Strawberries
- Handful of Blueberries
- Handful of Raspberries
- Handful of Spinach
- 1/2 cup of Orange Juice
- 1/2 cup of Water
Throw everything into a blender. I use my NutriBullet for everything and blend for 30 seconds.
Poor into a popsicle tray. You can purchase them at the Dollar Store or any other department store. If you had plastic cups and popsicle sticks, you can also use those too.
Freeze and enjoy just like Isla did!
I would love to try some other popsicle recipes! Please comment below with your favourite!
