Considering its been 90+ and HUMID as hell here in NY the past few weeks when I saw this recipe for Smoothie Pops
I knew they were a must make! Smoothies are one of my go to meal replacements, so frozen smoothies on a stick...pretty perfect combo!! If you follow me on TWITTER
you already know I spent last night making these babies!! ((& secretly wishing I had one at work right now because the Greek yogurt I brought for breakfast tastes terrible!!! Note to Self: Never buy Honey Chobani again.))
These are the perfect breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack that Everyone will love & kids will never know they're actually eating something HEALTHY! Each of these pops is about 80 calories & NO FAT depending on what type of milk you use.
Throw out your ice pops & start making smoothie pops for the perfect Summer Treat!
All you need is:
Milk (I used Almond Milk because I'm lactose intolerant)
Frozen Berries (I used raspberries, but you can try any berry combo)
Wooden Popsicle Sticks (I couldn't find any so I used Wooden Coffee Stirrers!)
I bet you're thinking...Why can she eat Yogurt if she's lactose intolerant?? Apparently the bacteria & cultures in yogurt cancel out the lactose! So milk, cheese & ice cream are OUT & yogurt (including fro-yo!!) is IN for me!
Lets get STARTED!!
Mix 3/4 cup of berries, 3/4 cup of yogurt & 3/4 cup of milk in a blender.
Taste yours to make sure its blended enough & it tastes good.
I needed to add a little more yogurt to mine so it was more firm.
Pour smoothies into paper cups. I used 9 oz, but you can use any size you want!
Place popsicle sticks in center of cups.
I seriously couldn't find ANY popsicle sticks so I found these wooden stirrers in the grocery store & figured stacking them would create the same effect as one thick stick.
Freeze for 3 hours!
Cut paper cup off smoothie pop...
& ENJOY!!! I know I did!
There are a ton of variations for this recipe. Try freezing your favorite smoothie combination. I'm definitely trying banana & pineapples next time!
