Healthy Summer Popsicle Ideas

I've mentioned my shift in diet to eat a more inflammatory foods, I've also extended that goal to the rest of the family. Cutting sugar is no easy feat when mom and three year old both have a major sweet tooth. Instead of taking away dessert, I thought my best bet was to trick my little into eating a better option. I bought silicone molds and we adapted our favorite smoothies into kid-friendly, delicious summer popsicle treats.

Healthy Peanut Butter Popsicle

HEALTHY PEANUT BUTTER BANANA POPSICLE


This popsicle is a riff on our very favorite smoothie. It tastes so sweet and delicious, but it's actually good for you. For the adult version I like to add a tsp of instant coffee. 

  • 1 banana
  • heaping scoop of your favorite peanut butter
  • about two tbsp yogurt 
  • coconut milk (until desired smoothness)
  • coconut flakes (optional)

Blend all ingredients except the coconut flakes until smooth. Pour into silicone molds. If desired, sprinkle with coconut flakes to the bottom of the popsicles. Freeze!
