Despite the snow in some parts of the country last weekend, the weather is finally starting to warm up. We’ve been spending more and more time in the backyard, and we often like to take a snack along for a picnic. Homemade popsicles are one of Alden’s (and my own) favorite warm-weather treats. They’re fantastic for teething pain, and it doesn’t hurt that they’re also incredibly easy.
You could even forgo the popsicle step and let your little one gobble up this recipe as a breakfast smoothie served with some whole wheat avocado toast. Reusable pouches are great for this.
Tropical Smoothie Pops
- 1 c almond milk (I think oat or coconut would also work well.)
- 1/4 c full-fat plain greek yogurt
- 1/2 c frozen mango
- 1/2 c frozen pineapple
- 1 frozen banana (Peel banana before freezing!)
- 1 handful spinach
- Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth.
- Pour evenly into popsicle molds. (If serving to a little one, a baby mold like this one is great.)
- Freeze overnight and enjoy!
That’s it! So simple. I love that you can make these ahead of time and pop them out on a warm sunny day.
