Ice Pops for Breakfast!

WE LOVE ICE POPS! I mean, who doesnt when its hot and summer. I prefer to make smoothie pops for the kids, and none of the good that go into them ever bother the kids. I also don't feel like I am commiting a crime when I help myself to one...or two as well! So I started this time with organic Banilla yogurt, fresh carrots, strawberrys,huge anounts of spinach and mint! Yep, mint from mt garden. If you are a smoothie drinker, and have never tried some mint in your berry smoothies, you are totally missing out!!!

I whip these together in my blender with a bit of water and agave and freeze.I only have one set of ice pop molds, but I have a baby bullet that came with a freezer mold and I just put cut in half tounge depressors in for the sticks.

These are great when the kids want an icey for breakfast! Another great addative is ground flaxseed. We add that in all the time, but I got mommy brain and forgot this time!



  1. oh very cool I want to try making these! And what a great idea with the mint. I will def be bookmarking this to try :)
