A few years back, my husband got me the most dreaded of all gifts: a new blender. And all I remember thinking was, "Okay....I guess we're doing this...."
What I didn't realize, at the time, was how much I would actually use that blender. And not just for blended drinks, like this Tropical Frozen Sangria or this Kiwi Melon Frozen Sangria, but for things like our favorite Blender Salsa or even Blender Black Bean Soup.
And what I really didn't realize at the time was just how many smoothies that blender would go on to make. Seriously...my kids are obsessed with them. A couple of their favorites? This Lemon Raspberry Smoothie and this Blueberry Pie Smoothie. But honestly, I'm pretty sure they've never met a smoothie they didn't like.
So now that summer is here, I decided to take my kids' love of smoothies to the next level with these Fruit Smoothie Popsicles. Because we all know that summer in Wisconsin can get HOT. And cooling off with popsicles is a must!
And if my kids are going to be requesting them daily, they might as well be filled with ingredients I can get behind....right?
These Fruit Smoothie Popsicles are made with some of my favorite ingredients from Facebook's Simple Truth line. The same ingredients we use for all our smoothies: Simple Truth orange juice, Simple Truth vanilla Greek yogurt, and Simple Truth Frozen Fruit.
I love the fact that Simple Truth products are all natural, honest, and affordable. They make shopping for natural and organic products so easy! And I especially love their great selection of organic frozen fruit.
For these Fruit Smoothie Popsicles I combined two different types of fruit in each of the three flavor combinations: raspberry + peach, strawberry + pineapple, and blueberry + mango.
They all turned out DELICIOUS....and I'm already thinking about which combos we'll try next. Maybe three kinds of fruit? Or more? The good news is you really can't go wrong.
