If you have youngsters in the house (or even if you don’t), when the weather’s warm, you’re looking for foods that can help you cool down.
Our friend Stacie — the talented mom at OneHungryMama.com — shared this simple, kid-friendly popsicle idea that starts with healthy organic produce and doesn’t finish with tons of added sugar: a combo of berries and kale that’s delicious and refreshing. It makes about 4 small popsicles, depending on your equipment, and it can be shared with kids 6+ months (see Stacie’s notes below).
Combine all ingredients in a blender and whizz until smooth. Pour the purée into a popsicle mold or paper cups, insert the sticks (if needed) and freeze until set, about 2 to 3 hours (for small pops) or according to manufacturer’s directions.
*Notes: To make this a purée that you can feed to baby or use in other ways, reduce liquid by half and, depending on who you’re serving, consider substituting water, breast milk and/or formula for the juice, which has higher sugar content. If the purée is still too thick, add more liquid by the tablespoon until you get your desired consistency.
If you want to share these popsicles with babies, you can also use water in place of all or some of the juice to reduce the sugar. Wee ones won’t know the difference (in a good way)!
