Fruit Smoothies popsicles

 

I use my Vitamixer for this but any blender on high will do.
I’ve noticed that the fruit popsicles are the new rage. They are often
described as a healthy snack, but sadly often contain 16 grams of sugar.
That’s 4 teaspoons of sugar per serving!  PC BLUE MENU Fruit smoothie,
has 14 grams of sugar, 0 Fat and 0 Protein!!!!!   Their Yogurt smoothie
has  1.5 grams of fat, 2 grams of protein and 12 grams of sugar.
I knew we could do better for our children and ourselves.
This is one I just tried and Calvin loves it!

1 banana
1 cup frozen mango or fresh
1/2 cup pineapple
1/2 cup canned full fat coconut milk OR 2 tablespoons Coconut milk powder  ( both have fat and protein)
Add water as needed so that it doesn’t bunch up at the bottom
Blend thoroughly and pour into popsicle containers. (I just bought a pack for 3 $). Freeze for a couple of hours and VOILA!
If you have children who don’t find this sweet enough, add 1 tablespoon of either honey or agave nectar.
Change flavours:   Blueberries, raspberries, strawberries, mixed fruitA little extra if your little ones like it: Almond butter!
