Smoothie Pops

June 7, 2017 No Comments

Many mornings for breakfast, I make a “smooshie” (smoothie, in toddler talk). Its a favorite #momhack of mine. I can get a good amount of calories and a couple servings of fruits and veggies. Plus, its portable and can go with me on any adventures we have, or just to my favorite seat on the couch.  Another great thing, my kids LOVE them. I’ve totally been sneaking veggies into my toddlers diet using them, because he is ultra picky right now.

I swear, I do have a point to all these ramblings about my breakfast….As summer approaches and it gets warmer, I have been trying to think of good frozen treats I can have stocked in my freezer. I know traditional popsicles are readily available and easy, and i’m sure we will consume our fair share, but if I can break it up with some treats with a little less sugar and additives, Ill call it a win. They also make amazing teething treats, for my baby. Who is cutting 4 teeth right now…popsicles everyday for that girl.
If you’re anything like me, those darn items by the checkout always get you. So when I found this little popsicle tray at walmart for a whopping .98, I had to buy it. And I decided to turn my favorite smoothie recipe, into a frozen treat for my family.

It’s super easy, only a few ingredients and a few seconds in the blender. I like using frozen fruit, but you could easily use fresh and add ice. This is the recipe I use:
1.5 cups almond milk (could use any other milk, I use breastmilk for the baby)
1 cup frozen fruit ( i used strawberries this day)
1 banana or 1/2 avocado (makes it creamy)
.5 cup plain yogurt
Add all the ingredients to your blender, and blend until smooth.
You can drink it as is, or fill molds to freeze for later.

Hope you enjoy this yummy treat!

  • When I picked "Be Brave" as my word for this year, I didn't realize I was asking the universe for an actual challenge. (And based on what I've gathered from many friends, I wasn't alone)  But, as the year comes to a close, I feel like I met my goal. And while there were some wonderful moments of this year, like starting a new job, growing my breastfeeding support group, and becoming an aunty twice more. But my anxiety was worse than it's ever been (admitting that isn't fun) and watching my mother in law battle brain cancer and Grandpa fight through a massive heart attack, has been hard. Needless to say, I'm ready for a new start with these little humans and their daddy.  See ya later 2018 👋

2019, please be kind to us 🙏

  • My top 9 of 2018 was an honest look at Motherhood. This was the year I found my voice, took opportunities outside of my comfort zone, and truly met my goal of being brave. I'm so glad and grateful you are all following along. Excited to see what 2019 has in store. Happy New Year!

  • I have been pretty open about my struggles with anxiety and depression. It's not fun or easy, and I often wish it wasn't part of my story, but it is. And through sharing, I can only hope that even one of you feels less alone. If you need a little extra support, I share daily affirmations in my stories every morning, I hope you'll follow along. 
Here's to today being a good day, even in it's imperfections ❤️ #musingsonmotherhood #thisismotherhood #this_is_postpartum #dailyaffirmations

  • Back to reality today and totally experiencing a holiday "hangover" We will be cleaning out and choosing toys and clothes to donate, since the kids got new stuff for Christmas. It's important to me that my kids be involved in this process, as it is their stuff and I want them to learn the value of service. Not taking our decorations down yet, I'm not ready to let the twinkle lights go ✨✨ #musingsonmotherhood #lighttheworld
  • Wishing you a very Merry Christmas. May your heart and home be full of love ❤️🎄
