GREEN TROPICAL SMOOTHIE

🥝 INGREDIENTS

  • Spinach: packed with iron, magnesium and vitamins A, C and K, also makes these popsicles the fun green color. You can use 1/2 – 1 cup of packed spinach in this recipe. If your kiddos are new to green popsicles, I would start by using 1/2 cup of spinach as they won’t be able to taste it. You can add more spinach the next time you make these popsicles.
  • Banana: full of potassium and fiber, adding a banana gives these popsicles a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Pineapple: gives these popsicles a fun tropical flavor twist while also adding a huge amount of natural sweetness. You can use fresh or frozen in this recipe. I usually use frozen.
  • Honey: is added to give these popsicles just enough sweetness to make them taste like a treat. Not to worry, they are not overly sweet. You should omit the honey if serving these popsicles to babies under 1 year of age.
  • Chia Seeds: are added to give these healthy popsicles a big boost in added protein, fiber and omega-3 fatty acids. Once blended, your kiddo will never even know they are in there.
  • Milk: is used to help combine all of the ingredients. You can use regular, almond, soy, oat, ect. I used almond milk in this recipe. You can also use coconut water or water in this recipe if you want.
