Healthy Popsicle Making with a Special Guest | Mommy Week

Who’s the special guest? It’s Mommy Week, so I think it’s pretty obvious…

054

Yep! You guessed it. My sous chef for this project was my Little Davy. This is not only a great idea for any of you to try with your children, but it’s also a super easy recipe for anyone out there- parents or not! Davy really helped out a lot with this which is proof that these popsicles are pretty fool-proof (ie. Popsicle Making For Dummies 😛 )!

Plus! They’re really healthy while still satisfying some serious cravings! I will definitely be making these all summer for the beach.

What you’ll need:

1 (12) oz. container of POM Wonderful Coconut Juice Blend, or if you have some sort of pomegranate or coconut water you prefer, go for it!

2 containers of Low-Fat Greek Yogurts. I used 4 different flavors, but only needed about half of each. Choose your flavors, I liked vanilla the best!

Fruit of Choice – I recommend  strawberries, blackberries, raspberries and kiwi.

Popsicle Containers to keep in the freezer. I found mine at Walmart.

Yield: 12 popsicles

077How to do it:

It’s pretty self explanatory, really, but here we go!

1. Fill the popsicle holders about 1/3 or 1/4 of the way up with your coconut water or juice.

2. Drop in your fruit. David was awesome at helping with this 🙂 Well, at first he would stuff a bunch of raspberries into one container until it overflowed, but once he got the hang of it, he liked counting them out “1 strawberry, 1 kiwi, 1 blackberry…” and so on!

3. Finish it off with a spoonful or two of yogurt. Mine were filled pretty high, but still had some room for the sticks to be put in.

4. Put on the sticks/lids and allow the popsicles to freeze overnight!

Tips if your toddler is helping…

Be prepared for a mess.

Be prepared for some of the fruit to “go missing”.

And be prepared for the popsicles to turn out perfectly imperfect. 🙂

As for the verdict? Davy gives these popsicles his stamp of approval. Tag us on Instagram if you try these or any variation @amodernshorelife!
