Smoothie Pops

Hi, friends!

Today’s recipe is healthy, refreshing, and easy to make! In other words, it is perfect for the summer time.

While making this I forgot to purchase popsicle sticks. Instead, I improvised and ate mine with spoons. Regardless on how you decide to consume these, they taste amazing. My favorite thing about these pops are that they are so versatile, you can use any fruit combinations, which means they are a perfect year round dessert (unless you are opposed to popsicles in the winter). 😉



YIELD: 8 servings PREP TIME: 15 minutes

FREEZE TIME: 4 hours or overnight TOTAL TIME: 15 minutes + freeze time

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 bananas- chop 1/2 of one
  • 2 cups of frozen strawberries
  • 1-1/2 cups of frozen pineapples
  • 1 + more cup mango juice
  • 8-10 strawberries, chopped

DIRECTIONS:

  1. In a small cup (Dixie cup), place 1 chopped banana at the bottom of each cup.
  2. Next, blend together remaining bananas, frozen fruit, and juice. Add more juice for desired consistency.
  3. Place fruit smoothie mixture until reaches half way mark of cup.
  4. Then layer chopped strawberries on top.
  5. Pour remaining smoothie mixture until reaches top.
  6. Place popsicle sticks and cover cups with foil (to avoid freezer burn); freezer until solid & enjoy.

* Essentially, you are layering- banana, smoothie, strawberry, smoothie

NOTES:

  • Feel free to use any fruit smoothie recipe you want.
  • You can use a popsicle mold.
  • If you’re like me and don’t have popsicles sticks, you can place the mixture in a cup and enjoy with a spoon- like flavored ice.

  1. This looks amazing! When I saw these, I thought they were candles haha, but I love their shape and how they look without popsicle sticks! Where do you buy mango juice?

    • Thank you, Anne! They do look like candles now that I look at them, lol. I buy mango juice from Costco or South Asian grocery stores. If you can’t find it, feel free to use any type of juice. I just LOVE mangos, so I chose mango juice. 🙂
