Green Smoothie Popsicles

There are a few household products that I think were invented only to torture me. First, plastic wrap. Seriously, it ruins my day. I always end up wrestling the box until I finally tear a half useable piece off. Second, popsicle molds. Torture. They leak, a handle breaks off, the pops get stuck. It's not a pretty sight.

I still haven't found the perfect popsicle molds (have you!?) but couldn't resist making us some Green Smoothie Popsicles. As any normal parent, I worry about Dylan eating enough greens and this is the perfect festive summer food to have him asking for more.

Green Smoothie Popsicles

I based this pop off of one of our favorite green smoothies, the Rainforest, but used fresh blueberries (as they are bursting off the bushes here) instead of mango. The Dino would also make a yummy pop.

1 banana
1/2 cup blueberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1/2 cup coconut milk
1-2 cups baby spinach 

Or you could always Choose Your Own Adventure.


  1. Love it! I bought the only popsicle molds I could find at Target last year.

  2. Was meaning to break out the popsicle molds with Olivia - now I have just the recipe to try out! Thanks Sarah!

  3. Have you tried this popsicle maker? It's wonderful! http://www.zokuhome.com/pages/products-quickpop-maker
    And I must say I love this blog! Helps keep me and my family happy and healthy.

  4. I've heard that these push pop molds are good for turning leftover smoothie into a treat, but I haven't tried them yet. Good luck on your quest!

  5. Hey Sarah. I had the same problem with plastic wrap until someone so kindly pointed out that on the ends of the box there are little tabs to keep the roll in place when you pull. You just have to push in the tabs and voila, no more frustration. Hope this helps!

  6. Love your blog chica :)


    These molds work great for us! Let me know what you think.
