I recently won a copy of
ICE POP JOY
The book has beautiful photos and some really great ideas for Ice Pops too!!
After reading through the book I felt inspired to come up with some recipes of my own-which I am excited to share with you!!
SO, my first idea was to use some fresh squeezed orange juice…
once I had juiced 2-3 oranges I poured the juice into some small glasses that I had.
but only 1/3 of the way!!!
I then placed plastic wrap over the tops of the glasses and stuck a popsicle stick in each one-the plastic wrap will hold the stick straight until it freezes!!
Once the orange juice layer had froze
I added some coconut milk and returned these creations back to the freezer!!
Once the second layer had froze I added a third layer of orange juice and froze that as well….
My kids were excited to try these too!!
These were so easy and fun for the kids I decided to try out some more ideas floating around in my head!!!
My next idea was to make a creamy coconut chia bar….something my kids could really indulge in!!
I started with some coconut milk and added in some maple syrup, chia seeds, and dried coconut flakes.
Poured it into molds and placed them into the freezer!!
I also put coconut flakes on the top before I added the lids…I thought this would be a fun little added treat !!
I had so much fun making these that I have 2 more to share!!!
Next I decided to experiment with a 2 layer pop…
I started with some bananas, chia seeds and a little almond milk….I blended it up and poured half into some glasses.
Then I added raspberries to the remainder of the mix to turn it pink…
Next I decided to make a 3 layer pop!!!
For the first layer, I started with some non dairy yogurt (my son is allergic to dairy), I added in a small amount of maple syrup and some blueberries and froze.
For the next layer, I used non dairy yogurt, maple syrup and a banana and then froze.
The the third layer, I used non dairy yogurt, maple syrup, and strawberries and then froze.
These were so fun to make and my kids enjoyed them too!!!
Which one do you think your kids would like the best??
What are some other ideas that would make great healthy frozen treats??
