Healthy Strawberry Banana Popsicles

Healthy Strawberry Banana Popsicles

Well vacation is over and now it is time to get back on track with some healthy eating for me and the girls.  I went to the store a few days ago and saw that Strawberries were still pretty cheap so I but a ton, and then forgot I had them (please tell me I am not the only one who does this). So now I have so many and they are starting to go bad so I had to think of something to do with them.

That is how this recipe came about.  You see my oldest hates strawberries, however she LOVES strawberry banana smoothies (yeah, I don’t get it either).  So I thought why not make the smoothie into a Popsicle, that way both girls would eat them.

It ended up working great, I thought at first I might have to add some juice to make them more watered down but that was not the case.  I only added the strawberries and bananas no extra sweetener or anything and they turned out great and the girls loved them.  As a matter of fact they were so excited after dinner to be getting a special treat, that I had to giggle because if they only knew they were eating something healthy….hehehe

I have really been trying to get us all to eat a little healthier and just love tricking my girls with things they think are bad with something healthy like the ice cream we made last year that is made from frozen banana’s.   What are some of the ways you get your kids to eat healthy?

      Most of these aren't real. They're from a website that lets you make your own photos look like high school yearbook pictures. Brand, Seinfeld, and Fallon are all fake.

    I like this recipe. We always pour orange juice into our pops. I think orange juice mixed with berries and bananas would be wonderful.

      Interesting point. Architecture is always about playing with the limitations of your brief. I don’t even understand the need for curved glass anyway. I very rarely see a beautiful building with curved windows. I could go through an entire list of my favourite architecture and not come across a single one with curved windows. Then again, I still hate this pathetic attack on architects by the current cabinet. They seem to have an agenda to destroy any area of the UK economy that’s inteinatronally famous.

      technical newbie question coming up. how do you shade? Do you unanprdiet the whole thing in 1 color prior to applying the local colors or do you just glaze over the local colors to get the shading right?

      make – re:GSSounds like some dissension in the ranks and GS may have been forced into TARP, so that it didn’t look like TARP catered to bad banks causing run from depositors. This salary cap issue could get interesting.

      Have you given any consideration at all with translating your main blog into Chinese? I know a small number of translaters here that would certainly help you do it for free if you want to contact me.
