Popsicle Season

May brings the beginning of popsicle season in Chicago, a great, healthy treat when homemade. You can use something as simple as paper cups as a mold or buy them at many stores or on Amazon.

 

Tropical Pops

  • 6 oz orange juice or skim milk
  • 3-4 pineapple chunks or ¼ cup
  • ¼ cup mango
  • ¼ cup strawberry
  • ½ cup ice

 

Green Tropical Pops

  • 6 oz orange juice or skim milk
  • ¼ cup pineapple chunks
  • ¼ cup mango
  • ¼ cup spinach
  • ¼ avocado
  • ½ cup ice

 

Berry Pops

  • 6 oz orange juice or skim milk
  • ¼ cup strawberries
  • ¼ cup blueberries
  • ¼ cup raspberries

You can blend these all together to make popsicles, or you can make blueberry popsicles and strawberry or raspberry popsicles separately and layer the colors.
