Naturally Sweetened Strawberry Banana Ice Pops
My 4 year old loves popsicles! There may have been a day recently when I was still asleep, my husband was in his home office, and my son snuck into our freezer and ate a popsicle at 7 in the morning. That may have happened. These Ice Pops are a treat I can feel good about my son eating any time of day. They are very much a smoothie in popsicle form, only sweetened with fruit. We are doing anything we can these days to keep cool and these Ice Pops are so refreshing after playing outside in the hot sun.
Makes 6 four ounce popsicles, you will end up with about 1 1/2 cups of liquid
* 3/4 cup milk of your choice (I use coconut)
* 1/2 ripe large banana
*4-5 large frozen strawberries, about 1/2 cup ( you can use fresh also)
* Optional- my son eats these popsicles as is but if you desire a sweeter popsicle you can add 1 tsp maple syrup or honey to the mixture.
1) Mix all ingredients in a high speed blender until smooth.
2) Pour the mixture into popsicle molds and freeze for 3 hours or until set.
I use Ikea small popsicle molds that are each 1/4 cup.
