100% Healthy – Veggie Popsicles

Am I the only mom who struggles to get servings of veggies into my kiddos?  We are always looking for Healthy Snack Ideas for kids.  These healthy veggie popsicles hit the spot!  They are almost as colorful as their high fructose concentrated counterparts, only they have zero added sugar and are full of all the vitamins and fat-fighting fiber that veggies come with- perfect for super healthy kids!  With all the fun flavor you would expect in a summer treat.

Berry Red Veggie Popsicles

  • 1 Cup of Blueberries
  • 1 Cup of chopped Red Chard
  • 1/2 Red Pepper
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 cup of Apple Juice
Put all the veggies and fruit into a blender along with the apple juice.  Blend until the ingredients are smooth.  Fill the sleeves with the veggie mix.  Freeze.   This recipe will make 4-5 popsicle sleeves.

Orange Carrot Mango Popsicles

  • 1 Mango – diced
  • 2 Large Oranges, peeled
  • 1 cup of shredded carrots
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 cup of Orange or Apple Juice
Blend all of the veggies and the fruits along with the juice at medium speed until the ingredients are smooth.  With the funnel, fill your sleeves.  Freeze.

Lime Green Popsicles

  • Juice from 1 lime
  • 1 cup of chopped fresh spinach
  • 1 Banana
  • 1 Green apple diced

My kids love how tart this recipe is!  You can double the lime if your kids love sour – mine do!  As with the other recipes, blend until smooth.
