Lime Mango Popsicles With a Secrete Ingredient

baking chic August 29, 2013 7

Making Popsicles is new to me and I found out that it can be addicting!

Once I realized how easy they are to make, I grew accustomed to opening my freezer and having a delicious treat always on hand. The little guys got really excited after my first attempt at popsicles and when there were non left, how flat and saddened we all were!

I tested out a Cantaloupe Popsicle with Coconut Milk. I wasn’t sure it was going to taste right and to my delight it, was wonderful!

I did take a picture of it, but I don’t have a recipe for you.

After that, I wanted to see if I could make another popsicle that had some healful nutrients and vitamins for the boys. I thought I could make a super food popsicle, but disguise it  with other ingredients. So here is a Lime Mango Pop with a secrete super food, (very) disguised.

 When I told my Honey the ingredients, he looked very doubtful after hearing, “Kale” but the next day when I gave him one to taste, he loved it and admitted that it tasted wonderful with no hint of kale. Very creamy and refreshing. The boys gobbled these up as fast as they could. And wanted another one after they had finished their first! Ha ha no fighting here, I gave them one more!

Kale is a great super food, very high in beta carotene, vitamin K, vitamin C, and Calcium. That just a few of its benefits. Here is a link for more information about it if you like to research further.

 I have been wanting to eat more of it. If I can include it in our diet without having to force it down our throats, it is a plus for me. I am not that great at preparing meals ahead of time and its seems more often I cook what I am craving at the moment and tend to forget about the veggies. I am trying to be better about this.

To get started you will need:

Ingredients :

1 Lime

2 Mangos

3 Leafs of Kale

2 Very Ripe Bananas

1 Teaspoon Vanilla

1 Can Coconut Milk (or whatever dairy you prefer)

* You don’t need sugar in this recipe.

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend for several minutes, until smooth. Next place paper cups on a cookie sheet and poor mixture into paper cups. Place a popsicle stick in every cup. Next put the cookie sheet in the freezer and freeze for 4-6 hours.

A nice treat for the end of Summer! I hope you give them a try :)

    What a great idea Marie!! I always have to disguise certain sweet treats or those darn boys won’t eat the good stuff either. I will have to try these soon. (first I need to get to the store)

    I hope you all are doing well. I’m playing catch up this week from our nice little vacation to the mountains. :)

    Love you,
    Amy

    Amazing! Sounds awesome I bet you find awesome mangos over there too! I bet substituting some avocado for the banana might be good too! Your pictures look awesome!

    Hello just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few
    of the images aren’t loading correctly. I’m not sure why
    but I think its a linking issue. I’ve tried it in two different web browsers and both show the same results.
