UPDATE: We’ve updated the recipe with photos and new how-to video on our food site hello, Yummy! Watch the video on how to make fruit and vegetable ice pops.
My kids won’t eat salads or greens if they’re staring right at them on a plate (who else can empathize?). So we do lots of green smoothies and recently have gotten into cold pressed juices. However, they don’t always like downing a glassful so making them into these yummy ice pops turns them into a fun food kids can enjoy. They’re refreshing and easy to pack for back to school lunch or snack too. Find out how easy it is to make your own fruit and veggie ice pops!
Fruit and Veggie Pops – Ingredients:
– Ice Pop Pouches
– Cold pressed juices
– Frozen fruit
– Blender or hand blender
– Baby Spinach
We made 4 different flavors. Each recipe fills up about 2 of the ice pops. You can double the recipe if you need more of one type of flavor.
Beet and Berries
– Combine 1/2 cup beet juice with 1 cup of frozen berries. Blend until smooth.
Orange, Pineapple, Spinach
– Combine 1/2 cup of orange juice + 1/2 cup frozen pineapple with 1 cup of baby spinach. Blend until smooth.
Pineapple, Orange, Mango
– Combine 1 cup total of frozen pineapple and mango + 1/2 cup orange juice. Blend until smooth.
– Combine 1/2 cup carrot juice + 1 cup frozen pineapple. Blend until smooth.
Fill up the ice pops, squeezing out the air and place them in the freezer until frozen.
Once they’re frozen, you have a refreshing and healthy treat for the kids!
