Smoothie Pops

Not only have I recently written a post about smoothies, but it seems to be trending right now, as I have read smoothie recipes on a ton of blogs lately. I though it might be worth sharing this idea.

On alot of these snow days Griffin has asked me to make him a smoothie, but with only the 3 of us here to drink it, I had been dumping alot of extra down the drain. Then I had an idea to make smoothie pops.

I poured the extra smoothie into a ice cube tray and put it into the freezer for a half hour. Then I pulled out the tray and inserted popsicle sticks into the semi-hardened cubes. A couple hours later I popped out the pops and tossed them into a ziplock and then back into the freezer. The kids love to have them as snacks and I love that they are getting more fruit and yougurt into their diet during a time of year when tasty fresh fruit is nearly impossible to get our hands on.
