After picking up my son from my good friend Rhonda’s house and finding him chowing down on homemade frozen fruit and veggie ice pops, I begged her to write a guest post with how she makes them. Big thanks to Rhonda for taking the time to put these ideas up for all you thrifty, vegetable sneaking parents like me out there!
Ok, so I must admit that when Sandra Lee coined the phrase, “Semi-Homemade”, I was jealous! I should have come up with that term because that is sooooo me! I want things quick, simple, affordable and healthy so I’m constantly making over recipes to put my own semi-homemade spin on them.
- Ice Pop Molds- I like the silicone molds because they are easier to work with.
- Yogurt (optional)
Green Smoothie Frozen Pops
- Purchase your favorite frozen juice, I like ‘Old Orchard Fruit & Veggie’ frozen juice concentrate, defrost, follow the directions for adding water and pour into your pre-form pops, freeze and enjoy!
- Mix equal amounts of your favorite juice with plain yogurt, pour, freeze and enjoy!
Please, share your favorite summertime treat recipes in the comments section below!
