Ever since the last summer, I’ve been noticing all sorts of recipes for popsicles, but couldn’t make of a reason to why I should make them at home. The other day while shopping with my boys, they’ve requested the popsicle molds and I bought them. Thinking that since boys want to make some at home, we can. Ever did I think that I can hide some of the healthiest ingredients in their popsicles and they would still love them.
We’ve been making all sort of smoothies, pouring them into popsicle molds and letting boys enjoy them on those hot, sunny days.
I wasn’t going to share this recipe because it’s too simple. But then I did want to inspire you to create good healthy popsicles for your kids. Don’t let them eat the ones with a ton of sugar and food coloring, it will pay off in the long run.
Here’s my four year old son, as proof that kids actually do enjoy them popsicles with spinach and carrot juice.

If you own a juicer, juice carrots; those giant bags of organic carrots from Costco come in handy.
Place pitted apricots, blackberries, spinach, honey and pour in carrot juice into a blender. Blend everything together, until the texture is smooth.
Pour the smoothie into each popsicle mold. Follow instructions of the box on how to freeze them properly.
