As promised, I am blogging a second attempt at fruit and veggie Popsicles (And just for your info, I didn't know that the word "Popsicle" was capitalized, but that is what my spell-checker tells me.) These were just as good as the Orange fruit and veggie Popsicles, but because my boys don't have any pink clothes or props, I used my 8-year-old daughter as the model...
So have you thought of any fun fruit and veggie combos to make pretty Popsicles? I thought of a new one today....a Brown Popsicle, using cocoa powder and green leaf lettuce or spinach. Probably replacing the water with milk would be a good idea, too. Let me know if you come up with any other color combinations and I hope your kids enjoy these, too!
1 cup water
1 cup peeled, shredded zucchini
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1/4 cup honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
Mix all ingredients in a blender (I love the Vita-Mix) and blend until smooth. Pour into Popsicle makers, then freeze for at least four hours, or until completely frozen. To remove from Popsicle makers, run cool water over them for a few seconds.
