Smoothie Pops

by Stephanie Clinton

I’m lovin’ this recipe because it is so delish. What a fun way to get the kids cooled down and fruit in their tummies at the same time!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large peach or mango, peeled, chopped
  • 1 large nectarine, peeled, chopped
  • 2 medium bananas, peeled, sliced
  • 1 cup strawberries, leaves hulled
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup orange or fruit juice
  • 2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
  • 16 paper cups

Instructions

  1. Place all smoothie ingredients in a blender and blend until just smooth.
  2. Place 16 paper cups on a baking tray.  Pour smoothie into paper cups.  Place tray in freezer and freeze until slushy, about 20 minutes.
  3. Remove tray from freezer and insert one popsicle stick into the center of each cup.  Return to freezer and freeze until firm, about 2 hours.
  4. Tear away paper cup and place on plate.
