Frozen Veggie Pops!

When the August heat is just too much to bear, sometimes a cold treat is the best way to cool off and relax.  But so many of the frozen pops from the store are loaded with sugars, weird ingredients, and have no nutritional value.  Well guess what?! Making popsicles at home is super simple, and our you can make them plenty of vegetables and fruits so they are extra healthy!  We absolutely love making these frozen veggie pops because they tatse great and are loaded with wonderful ingredients that will leave your kids feeling refreshed and full.

  • 1 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 whole mango, sliced
  • ½ cup plain whole milk yogurt

Green Dinosaur Popsicle
