I saw smoothie pops in the grocery store over the weekend. It may have never occurred to me to make these. Or maybe I have done it and forgotten. No matter. It's a great concept especially since there are days I'm (sadly) too lazy to even haul out the blender to make my son's favorite smoothie.
Our recipe is very imprecise:
- Handful of frozen strawberries
- Handful of frozen blueberries. I think I use about a cup.
- about a half a cup of orange juice
- 6 ounces of yogurt, any flavor
I may mix it up from time to time, but my son is partial to this concoction.
I made a bigger batch and poured it into our popsicle molds. My son inserted the popsicle sticks. I think they took about 2-3 hours to freeze completely. And as you can see...
...they are a big hit. He is requesting a third as I write.
