Hey hey my loves!
It is FRIDAYYYYYYYY...
And this is my 4th post this week. I guess miracles do happen. HA! I am finally in a groove! This is the content and consistency I have been wanting around here and I am hoping the groove is here to stay...
So onto these smoothie pops. I'll be the first to admit that I have not reinvented the wheel, it's a basic green smoothie I make regularly for Z and I. And with these two other molars poking through I am pulling all my tricks and trying to make sure she is comfortable and eats her veggies. We have bought a few types of organic no sugar added yogurt bars and but it usually melts before she is even half way, which means she is a hot mess by then end and never really finished an entire bar... And since I have played around with these molds that my MIL bought us, (which are amazing b/c you can make them in minutes) but they are still too big. Soooo I ordered these molds last week and LOVE them. Perfect size. Way easy to clean. Andddd my mini helped make them!
I find that including her in "cooking" or making smoothies is the best way to get her to try whatever I am making. And well a straw in any drink will almost guarantee she drink it.
You better belive I'll be making cake pops in the future!
8oz coconut water
4oz of spinach
2 cups of frozen fruit (I usually just use mango but we had raspberries so I threw them in too!)
1 peeled and cored green apple
Pour into molds.
Serve rest in a glass for yourself and your littles.
Freeze (6 hours)
And then enjoy.
**** Best tip for smoothies is to blend leafy greens with liquid first and then add the rest of your ingredients. You get a much smoother smoothie. hehehehe! ****
Perfect perfect for the weekend with my teething little monster. They are small enough to enjoy without melting all over the place and before she looses interest and is onto the next thing!
Hope you all have a fabulous Memorial Day weekend planned and may we always remember those that have served and serve.
