Smoothie Pops

It's July, and it's hot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Everyone needs a good cool-down treat in the summer time, and this is my tried and true recipe that pleases children and adults alike. It's packed full of nutritious stuff, and nothing nasty to speak of. This recipe has even been tested on a friend's son who never ever eats fruits or vegetables, but couldn't get enough of these pops. Enjoy!

Smoothie Pops
1/2 cup frozen fruit (we usually use a mix of berries and mango)
1/2 cup plain yogurt
1/2 cup milk
2 Tbsps. veggie powder (we use Triple Greens by Purity Products)
1 Tbsp. ground flax seed

Combine all ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth. Add more milk if needed to thin the consistency. Pour into freezer pop molds (we use these great silicone ones). Freeze thoroughly.

These can be made vegan by substituting soy yogurt and any non-dairy milk substitute (soy, rice, hemp, almond milks).
