Popsicles are a huge hit in our house.  We make them regularly – and by regularly, I mean weekly.  

Popsicle day also means milkshake day. 

Berry Banana Popsicles
These are Berry Banana Popsicles, but we use other fruit combinations too.

To make: Combine in a blender –

  • 1 large container Vanilla yogurt
  • 1 punnet strawberries
  • 1 small tray blueberries
  • 1 banana (chopped)

Popsicle

This is where the milkshake comes in.

Once you have filled your popsicle holders with the yogurt and fruit combination, top up the blender with milk.  Add a little flax-seed (thanks to a friend for that suggestion). Blend again.  Viola, milkshakes!  These are a perfect way to tide the kids over between meals and while they wait for the popsicles to set – I can normally hold them off until the next day because the milkshake fills them up and by the time they are hungry again it's time for lunch or dinner.

This is also a great activity to get your kids involved in.  Have them put all of the fruit and yogurt into the blender (supervised of course).

Thank you. The popsicle mold is from Ikea. There is green top (with a stick) for the popsicles, but of course my kids lost them all, so now I just use regular popsicle sticks.

Actually, you jogged my memory that I hadn’t responded to the previous person who’d asked, so thank you :).

Thanks for repeating your comment… For some reason it didn’t show up when I browsed this post…but then of course it did when I linked to it from the comment email. DANG that technology. Funny too that they are from IKEA…I just saw them online the other day and thought I should get some…now that I’ve seen them in action…they are on the list for the next visit. thanks again for repeating yourself for me 🙂
