When it comes to food and meals, those who know me know that creativity and elaborate dishes are not my strength. Combine this with a need to find new ways to increase my child’s daily intake of vegetables. With this in mind, I decided to do a trial of these healthier versions of popsicles.
1. Obtain popsicle molds.
2. Fill a quart-size mason jar with filtered water.
3. Add greens powder from single serve packet or 1 scoop from tub to 32 oz of water (you can adjust the strength of the flavor but adding more or less water to the powder).
4.Mix thoroughly, then pour into popsicle molds/containers. Place in freezer until hard, then remove and enjoy, knowing your child is consuming at least a few servings of greens with each popsicle!
