Even the healthiest of eaters have their off days (or off weeks) when they decide they don’t want to eat anything green you put on their plate! Or times when they are asking for a dessert or a sweet treat when they probably don’t need one. I love keeping some healthy popsicles in the freezer for those moments. It makes both the parents and the kids happy- they get a refreshing and delicious popsicle and you can smile and sit back knowing they’re consuming a boatload of nutrients! A healthy dose of mom trickery!
- ½ cup coconut chunks- frozen
- ½ cup organic mixed berries- fresh or frozen
- ½ cup filtered water
- ½ cup non-dairy milk of choice
- 1 scoop Strawberry Banana Daily Sunshine*
- Add all ingredients into high powered blender, blend on high until all ingredients are liquified.
- Pour equally into popsicle molds and place in freezer.
- Let freeze completely before trying to remove from mold!
If you don’t have Daily Sunshine, you can sub in a Tablespoon of hemp seeds or a scoop of tropical or vanilla flavored plant-based protein powder. Just be sure to check the ingredients and dosing suggestions on any protein/shake powder for the little ones!
