  • Warm Weather…bring on the popsicles!

    Happy Sunshine Everyone!! Well, it is at least sunny around my area. We have had a rough winter and a very cold spring so far so I am incredibly grateful for a few warm sunny days.

    My 3 year old loves popsicles. And so does my baby (10 month old) as of the last couple weeks. The funny thing is my 3 year old hates my smoothies. Every time she even tries one, which she often won't, she always says "no, not good". I have tried so many different smoothie recipes and the majority of the time she doesn't like them. However, here is my super sneaky trick, I freeze the same smoothie into popsicle mould's and like magic, she likes them.

    We have been on a popsicle making bonanza around here. We have tried a few new recipes and this one in particular is defiantly share worthy. This one is a bit too rich and thick for a smoothie but is great for a creamy popsicle.

    Here are the ingredients

    • 1.5 cups pineapple
    • 1 cup mango
    • 1 can of thai coconut milk
    • 2 drops of orange essential oil* (optional)
    • 10 drops of liquid stevia (optional)

    Blend and fill popsicle mould's. I often use my Zoku. Love the product. I only have the single one though so I also use plastic (BPA free) mould's.

    *I only use Young Living essential oils for this. The oil that you are using must be a high quality and food grade. Orange essential oil is a potent antioxidant known for its ability to ward off cancer. It is also great for digestion and very uplifting. I also love diffusing it in my home!

    Making your own popsicles is a fun thing to do with little ones and a great way to get some great nutrition in a fun way. I also make ones with added greens, cucumber, beets, etc.
