Healthy Pops

Here is my first recipe for the site. I put together some healthy popsicleIMG_2217s for the summer.

I made three type of popsicles this time. My Green Goodness, Beets Me and the Honey Half and Half. I used my Breville Juicer and my Haro Cold Brew Coffee and Tea Maker. they are great products and they are essential to my summer routine.

Green Goodness –  Used Juicer to liquefy

  • Celery (2-3 stalks)
  • Cucumber
  • Green Apple
  • Kale or Spinach (whatever is fresh in the garden)
  • Mint
  • Optional – Pineapple or other summer fruit

For kids, I would go with spinach and additional fruits to make this more of a treat.

Beets MeIMG_2222

  • Beet
  • Cucumber
  • Celery
  • Optional – Other greens

This is one is pretty sweet because of the beets. Many people don’t like beets but they are one of my favorites.

Honey Half and Half

  • Fresh Lemons and Lime Juice
  • Green Tea with Fresh Mint Leaves Brewed over night
  • Honey
  • Optional: Add Fresh Ginger

The key is to use funnels to fill the popsicle tubes. I actually used two sizes of the funnels. It was not difficult but some of the bags were easier to open than others. Here is a link to the bags that I bought which were pretty inexpensive.  My family has had mixed results. My husband still loves his sugar but says these aren’t bad for being healthy.

Enjoy!
