Spinach popsicles

I've started making smoothies and freezing whatever is left into a Popsicle mold. This is my sneaky way of getting my family to eat a serving of vegetables. It's gone over WAY better than the cauliflower scrambled eggs. Joshua loves to eat these, and some days I even let him eat 2. He thinks he's getting such a treat, when it's probably the healthiest thing he's eaten all day.

The one below was made with vanilla yogurt, banana and spinach. Healthy, Healthy, Healthy. Not my favorite, but he ate all of them. Isn't the color gross?

This morning I made a smoothie with cherries, vanilla yogurt, spinach and a banana and it was the best one by far. (pretty pink color too!)

I will have to try one of these next time I come over! I don't know about the spinach and banana though...that sounds yucky!

A mum's gotta do what a mum's gotta do! It's amazing that toddlers will eat the weirdest combinations of food. Good on you for your ingenious idea.

Um, you're right....that doesn't look very good! But if your kids eat it then great! I'm gonna have to try this with my picky daughter.

We make smoothies all the time, I never thought about freezing the left overs. Great idea.
