Less Drippy Ice Pops

When you walk into my house the term "neat freak" might not be the first phrase that runs through your mind. I am, however, a neat freak when it comes to eating. I don't like to be messy. I always have napkins, use a fork to eat pizza (sometimes) and DO NOT like to be sticky.

When Maya was a baby, I used to make smoothies every single morning. I made so much smoothie I didn't know what to do with it! I'm not a fan of "next day smoothie" and I ended up wasting too much. Why I didn't just make less is still a mystery to me, however, I wouldn't have come up with my "less drippy ice pop"!

I poured my smoothie into ice pop molds and when Maya and I ate them they didn't melt like juice ice pops! Since they are made out of fruit and veggies it seemed to be more solid than liquid. The most recent batch I made had kefir in it and the kids loved it. Best of all, since it's just a fruit smoothie, they are healthy! Maybe even a super special breakfast treat!

  2. If you eat freeze dried fruit as a snack, the dust and crumbs at the bottom also make great popsicle mix thickener!
