Get the nutrients in your kids with this Lemon Strawberry Popsicles recipe.
Look. As a Mom I’m going to keep it real. While my kids love strawberries, apples and blueberries that’s about the extent of the fruit they all agree on. Beanies refuses to eat grapes and oranges, but the littles love them. So while I serve them a fruit at each meal I do need help getting the nutrients into their bodies, especially when they are sick. Now vegetables, I just can’t bribe them enough. There’s nothing on this planet that is going to allow them to eat their carrots, spinach or kale. So I stick them into recipes whenever I can.
My store didn’t have any kale or fresh spinach, but, they can totally be added to smoothies. It gives the smoothie a bright green color and you can’t even taste it. I’ll be sharing more Smoothie Recipes so stay tuned for additions!
We use to just make the kids a PowerAde Zero slushie when they were sick, but, that gets a little bit old for them after awhile. So I like to switch things up every so often.
Now that strawberries are back in season it’s a go to. I can freeze them for smoothies later and simply pull the bag of ingredients out of the freezer, throw it in the Ninja with either milk or orange juice and a scoop of whey protein and we are good to go.
This recipe is technically a smoothie, however, I simply poured it into a popsicle mold as it’s fun for the kids!
