Kids generally love popsicles or lollipops and Green smoothie ice pops are a fun, tasty and colourful opportunity to get some extra vitamins into kids!
Green smoothie ice pop are also a huge improvement on the commercial varieties loaded with colours, flavourings and sugars.
I have tried different flavours, textures and various shaped novelty moulds, pretty much all with great success. My favourites are the green smoothie types, with lovely creamy textures and strong vibrant colour and flavours. The kids love their green ice pops and enjoy helping to make them, I don’t have to hide the ingredients from them as they will happily add foods to the blender to help make their ice pops with foods they would never touch otherwise, such as avocados and spinach leaves. Happy days!
Here is one of my well tried and tested simple home ice lolly, with only 4 ingredients:
- 1 ripe banana
- 2-3 cups fresh baby spinach
- 1 cup frozen mango
- 1/2 cup coconut water
