Cool off with delicious Popsicles this summer made with BPA free Popsicle molds! AND if you live in my house you get good old fashioned veggies or greens in your Popsicles too. Yum! And I fully disclose the ingredients…no sneaky chef here. My kids know they are eating spinach pops or kale pops or whatever the case may be and they are cool with it because they taste good. Seriously, as I was writing this my 7 year old son popped his head in my door and asked if he could have a spinach pop.
My own kids are crazy about homemade Popsicles and I have been making them for about two months straight now. I make green smoothies daily in my household and I always make extra so I can fill Popsicle molds.
Some recipes my kids love:
1 cup raw almonds
3 just ripe bananas
2 tsp raw honey
3 cups water
Blend up the almonds and the water to make almond milk. Strain the milk through a nut milk bag. Blend the almond milk together with the rest of the ingredients and either drink or pour into popsicle molds. Enjoy!
Green Pineapple Paradise
1/4 fresh pineapple, chopped
3 large Kale leaves
1 ripe banana
3 fresh mint leaves
2 to 4 cups water
Mix all ingredients in a blender until smooth and either drink or pour into popsicle molds. Enjoy!
We also make sure to put them in BPA free Popsicle molds. Here are some ones that I recommend. I confirmed with the manufacturing company that these Tovolo brand popsicle molds are made with polypropylene and are BPA free. Also, obviously silicone would be BPA free as well.
