Raise your hand if your a mother of a child who LOVES popsicles– so much that you might give in and give him more than a few a day? I’M SO GUILTY OF THIS. I’ve been really into checking labels and ingredients lately wondering what the freak I’m eating. I just want to know exactly what is what, and why can’t I even read the damn word? Well, that is a whole other subject I’ll get into later, but for now, I just wanted to point out that most popsicle have a ton of BS in them that I don’t like. Added sugars, food dyes, artificial flavorings etc…
I didn’t like the idea of Oaks eating the 3-4 (half eaten I might add) popsicles a day, that are full of junk. My sister in law gave me the idea that she makes her own. No clue why I never thought of this! But I looked up popsicles molds on amazon, made my own mixture that sounded delicious and BAM, Oaks loves them so much! They’re super easy to make. Here is the recipe!
Makes about 7 popsicles, but my POPSICLE MOLD only had room for 6.
- 1/2 can of Coconut Milk
- 1 cup Cold Pressed Real Orange Juice
- 1 Banana
- 3 Large Pineapple Chunks
- Handful of Spinach
- BLEND IT UP!
You’ll pour the mix into each mold. It comes with a funnel, so you don’t spill everywhere. Stick in the freezer for at least 6 hours, but it’s best if you let them sit overnight.
Then pull them out & enjoy! Just FYI it’s a little hard to pull the popsicle out of the mold, so just know that it might take you a couple tries to get it out, but totally normal.
Best way to sneak in veggies! Hope your kiddos love them as much as mine! Let me know if you guys try them & comment below to tell me what you think!
Have a great day!
