Veggie Pops

Being a pretty warm day today, my kids always ask for ‘popsicles’. Last year I bought some of these ‘freezie’ ziplock style containers (from Bed Bath and Beyond) and made my own from various smoothie recipes. Here’s a few recipes that include VEGGIES!

BERRY RED VEGGIE POPSICLES

  • 1 Cup of Blueberries
  • 1 Cup of chopped Red Chard
  • 1/2 Red Pepper
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 cup of Apple Juice

Put all the veggies and fruit into a blender along with the apple juice.  Blend until the ingredients are smooth.  Fill the sleeves with the veggie mix.  Freeze.   This recipe will make 4-5 popsicle sleeves.

ORANGE CARROT MANGO POPSICLES

  • 1 Mango – diced
  • 2 Large Oranges, peeled
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 cup of Orange or Apple Juice

Blend all of the veggies and the fruits along with the juice at medium speed until the ingredients are smooth.  With the funnel, fill your sleeves.  Freeze.

LIME GREEN POPSICLES

  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 cup of chopped fresh spinach
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Green apple diced
  • 1 cup of apple juice

Kids love tart things! You can double the lime if your kids love sour – mine do!  As with the other recipes, blend until smooth.
