Healthy Smoothie Based Fruit Pops

I thought of an incredible idea, and although I know that somebody out there has already thought of it, I felt quite excited (and brilliant) to test it and try it out! Smoothie-based fruit pops! These things are amazingly tasty, and contain no added chemicals, synthetic flavours or any of that other crazy stuff you really don't want to be putting in your body (have you read the ingredient list on some popsicles out there? It's scary!)

All you need for these smoothie pops is popsicle moulds, a blender, a freezer, some fruit and leafy greens (if you want to make the green ones). They are incredibly simple to make, and help you to cool down on those deathly humid-hot days. You can experiment too! Make any kind of your favourite smoothie blend, and freeze them in popsicle moulds - the sky is the limit!


Green Blend:
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 cup kale
- 2 ripe, spotty bananas
- 4 pitted medjool dates
- 1/2 cup water

Raspberry Cooler:
- 1 cup organic raspberries
- 1 cup peeled & chopped mango
- 1 cup young coconut water
- 1/4 cup basil

Strawberry Healer:
- 1 cup organic strawberries
- 1 cup ripe pineapple
- 1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

For each smoothie base, blend in a blender such as the Vitamix, and pour into popsicle moulds. Place a popsicle stick in the middle of each mould and let freeze over night, or for at least 8 hours. Enjoy!
