Fruit and veggie ice pops
These delicious fruit and veggie ice pops have recently became a favorite around this household! It’s a nice way to have my daughter eat healthier and a great snack on hot summer days, for adults too.
My daughter is not totally against fruit and veggie but she’ll get very picky. She’ll take a banana, maybe an apple or a pear once in a while and she’ll tolerate cucumbers as long as they’re peeled. And she loves strawberries and red bell peppers!
So I thought I should combine some of these and add some that she’s not crazy about (like carrots and beets) in a delicious and refreshing fruit and veggie ice pops recipe that we can all enjoy at summer time. I added Greek yogurt to make the pops more nutritious and filling. And since my daughter burns a lot of calories in her swimming and karate classes, I added some honey for a boost of energy. You can always drink the smoothie from these fruit and veggie ice pops instead of freezing in ice pops molds.
