Here at our house we love to make homemade Popsicles! This morning, as I was fixing my coffee, Ashlyn and I got on the subject of making Popsicles. I realized I had some mangos in the fridge that needed to be eaten and that's when the idea struck me! Homemade Tropical Popsicles! I started the coffee pot (we have priorities around here you know!) and then pulled these ingredients out of the fridge:
1 banana (this was not in the fridge...I hate it when they turn black!)
1 single serving of vanilla yogurt
1 c. OJ
a few strawberries
I put everything but the strawberries in the blinder and made a puree. Then I simply poured the puree into the Popsicle molds. Next to add a little cuteness, I cut the tops off of the strawberries and then cut a notch on the top and then sliced them vertically to make little "hearts". Then I stuck the hearts (one on each side of the Popsicle) upside-down. I did them upside-down so that when you pull the pop out and hold it it will be right-side-up! ;) Now they are in the freezer and we will have a tasty treat full of healthy fruit and no added sugar!
I hope you will try this one out! Its fun to let the kids involved in cutting the fruit (with butter knifes) and put it in the blender. Then let them push the button! You will need to do the pouring unless you are out side with a garden hose ready!
Here are some pictures I snapped while putting this all together.
