So, I was at Wal-Mart the other day (Yeah, I know. Don't judge. LOL) and saw these cute popsicle makers in the dollar section. I have 8 kids that can eat these, and there were 8 of these, so that was perfect!
Anyway, what could I make my kids that's somewhat healthy? Smoothies! I add a bit more sugar than I would for an actual smoothie, but you can do more or less to your liking.
Here's my Smoothie Pop recipe!
Combine in a blender:
3 cups of frozen fruit (I use a tropical blend)
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup water
3 Tbsp sugar
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
2-3 drops almond extract
Blend on high about a minute, or until completely smooth. Pour into popsicle molds. Put on tops. Freeze 2 hours, or until completely frozen. Enjoy the leftover smoothie, as there is generally some left over!
Run under warm water a few seconds to help unmold. Eat!
