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.

Other than the occasional treat from the ice cream truck that frequented my grandmother’s neighborhood during the Louisiana- HOT!, summer days, my fondest memory was her homemade ice pops made with Zatarain’s Root Beer extract and a lot of sugar (I know, it’s a southern thing)!!!! Every once in a while I still make them, but, in order to satisfy the ‘healthy’ portion of my aforementioned requirements, I more readily offer my version of healthy ice lolly’s and my toddler loves to help make them as well.

Basic Supplies:
  • Ice Pop Molds- I like the silicone molds because they are easier to work with.
  • Fruits
  • Veggies
  • Yogurt (optional)
  • Blender
  • Freezer
Here are a few of our favorite recipes:

Green Smoothie Frozen Pops

  • Follow either of the recipes listed below and add about 2 cups fresh or frozen fruit (plus I always throw in a handful of spinach), blend well, pour, freeze and enjoy!

Fruit & Veggie Pop Ingredients

Fruit & Veggie Juice 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!
Yogurt Frozen Pops
  • Mix equal amounts of your favorite juice with plain yogurt, pour, freeze and enjoy!
