A PYP Best Blog! Homemade Smoothie Popsicles!

Just in case you missed this article on making homemade smoothie popsicles the first time we shared it a couple of years ago, we are republishing it. After we published this blog originally, we got an awesome response. This is one of the PYP Best Blogs!

Warmer weather is upon us and it is time for cool snacks, like popsicles! What kid doesn’t like a popsicle? I really prefer to not give my kids Otter Pops and other cool treats that are just filled with sugar and coloring additives. So I make my own popsicles. Now you can just freeze juice or pudding, but blending up a mixture of fruit & vegetables mixed with yogurt or honey can make a really yummy snack…and much healthier too!

Here are some I made last week. They were gone in just a few days. My kids devour ’em!


I usually use whatever I have on hand, but I have written down a few of the smoothie recipes I make. Keep in mind these are only approximate portions, however, because I use what I have on hand or change my mind all the time. I never measure anything. It also depends on how much I want to make as to the portion sizes. They always turn out different, but good!

Orange Julius
1/4 c. orange juice concentrate
1 1/2 c. milk
1 or 2 bananas
3-4 raw baby carrots
handful of fresh pineapple
handful frozen peaches
half apple cut into chunks
1 c. vanilla yogurt
honey to sweeten (optional)

Blend until smooth! I use frozen fruit so I don’t add any ice. If you use canned or all fresh you will want to add ice. Can also add pears or any other yellow or orange fruit or veggie.

Purple Passion
1/2 c. vanilla yogurt
1 c. milk
handful of frozen blueberries & raspberries & strawberries
small handful raw baby spinach
3-4 baby carrots
1 banana
honey to sweeten

Blend until smooth! Like I said above, if you don’t use frozen fruit add ice.

Peanut Butter Blast (this one is more of a yummy treat!)
1 c. milk
1/2 c. peanut butter
1 banana
chocolate syrup
small handful of graham crackers
ice

Blend until smooth.
