Wordful Wednesday: Purple People-Eater Ice Pops + Recipe

Wednesday, October 24, 2012

It's been so unseasonably warm here in the East Bay Area that I decided to pull out the Zoku a couple Saturdays back and had the neighbors over for quick-pops. It started raining this week and I was feeling nostalgic for summer while wanting to welcome fall at the same time. I thought making ice pops would be nice, so me and the girlie threw a bunch of stuff into the blender and they turned out a pretty purple. We dubbed them our Purple People-Eaters, so fitting for Halloween (and healthy too!)...


Here's my original recipe:
Purple People-Eater Ice Pops 
  • pour 8 oz Vanilla Almond Milk in a blender  
  • add 1/4 cup of yogurt (I used plain whole milk Greek)  
  • toss in 1 cup of mixed berries (bluberries, blackberries, raspberries)  
  • add 2 packets of natural sweetener (I used organic Stevia, but Sugar in the Raw is okay too)
  • blend until smooth 
  • pour smoothie mixture into ice pop molds and freeze
  • enjoy!

These look good! And definitely something I wouldn't feel guilty about eating or giving to the toddler. I'd love if you came and shared at our healthy snack link-party! http://www.youngnesters.net/2012/10/snacktime-saturday-week-7.html

Those have to be the prettiest popsicles that I have ever seen! I tried to comment on this post earlier, but couldn't. It was really weird. It was showing up in my reader, but when I tried to go to the post, I would get a message that the page did not exist. Today, no problems though!
