Making Nutrition a Way of Life

Simple 3 ingredient Popsicles

Leave a comment

With the warm weather here in North Carolina, my kids have been asking repeatedly for popsicles. Since we make our own popsicles with leftover smoothies I have no problem saying “yes” almost every single time they ask. However, yesterday we ran out of our freezer stash *GASP*!!! So we put a few simple ingredients together in our blender and created a delicious protein packed popsicle with no added sugars (and this time we drank the leftover popsicle mixture). Hope you enjoy this simple summertime “treat.”

Banana Peach Protein Pops

 

Ingredients:

1 cup plain organic nonfat Greek yogurt
1 ripe banana
2 large peaches, pit removed and roughly cut for easy blending

Directions:

Put all the ingredients in a high speed blender (I use a Vitamix) and blend until everything is pureed together. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze…….then see if you can wait until they are actually frozen to eat (this is always the hardest part for my kids). Enjoy!

Note: I’m sure you could add a handful of spinach to the blender to add another punch of nutrition without changing the flavor. However, for this round I wanted to change up the color a bit for the kids since most of our smoothie pops are dark (from blueberries) or green (from spinach or kale).
