Some people eat with their eyes, and sometimes all it takes is a change in HOW food is presented for them to eat it right up! That's why we present the Rainbow smoothie Pops!
Pink Layer: 1/4 cup frozen strawberries, 1/4 cup frozen raspberries, a few frozen cranberries (optional), 1/2 cup yogurt and 1/2 cup orange juice
Orange: 1/2 frozen banana, 1/4 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup frozen peaches, 2 carrots, 1 clementine
Yellow: 2 frozen bananas, 1/2 cup yogurt, 3/4 cup frozen pineapple
Green: 1 frozen banana, 1/2 cup yogurt, a handful of broccoli, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple, handful of spinach (optional)
Blue: 1/2 cup yogurt, 1/2 cup frozen blueberries, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple, small amount of blue food coloring (as needed to achieve desired color)
Purple: 1/2 frozen banana, 3/4 cup frozen mixed berries, 1/2 cup yogurt and a few beet slices.
How to prepare:
For each layer, place ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. Add more orange juice to help blend if the mixture is too thick.
Continue blending each layer until you have 6 different colors of mixture and wash the blender in between colors.
Next, alternate pouring various layers into the molds, waiting about 2 minutes between each layer.
Once molds are full let them set completely (another few minutes). Remove pops from the maker and enjoy!
If using a standard popsicle mold, use a spoon to scoop mixtures into the mold (Your layers will blend a little, but that is fine!) Once molds are filled, freeze overnight and enjoy the next day!
