While at my parent’s house for a BBQ, my mom pulled out ice pops—My kind of treat! It was perfect for a hot day but one taste and I immediately had to stop eating-the sugary-syrup aftertaste was too much for me. I checked out the ingredients (Corn syrup, dyes etc. etc. etc.) and threw out the ice pop, explaining to my mom that she should be buying something else. I decided to take matters into my own hands, bought some popsicle molds from Amazon and created these beauties. I used the recipe that I usually use to make my smoothies—blended fruit and almond milk. SO easy, delicious and a million times healthier than the store-bought brand!
Fruit Ice Pops
Ingredients (for 12 popsicle molds):
Popsicle Molds (I used these)
2 Cups almond milk (Feel free to substitute water, milk or yogurt)
2 Fresh bananas
2 Cups frozen fruit of your choice (To make the layered popsicle like I have pictured, make 2 separate batches and layer in the molds. For example, I used strawberry-banana and mango-banana)
Blend all the ingredients in the blender until smooth. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze at least 2 hours. If you would like to be more creative, create different batches like I mentioned before and layer in the molds or add some pieces of fruit to the mixture before pouring into the mold.
