Here is my first recipe for the site. I put together some healthy popsicles 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)
- Green Apple
- Kale or Spinach (whatever is fresh in the garden)
- Optional – Pineapple or other summer fruit
For kids, I would go with spinach and additional fruits to make this more of a treat.
- 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
- 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.
