Berry Good Frozen Pops

My 6 year old daughter, Addison, loves to help in the kitchen. She especially likes to mix things up for smoothies or popsicles. This child will try anything! AND most importantly she is always supportive of whatever I may concoct for dinner. 🙂

We recently bought some great popsicle molds at the local TJ Max in the shape of stars. I thought this would be perfect for Addi to make her creations in since one day she is going to be a movie star. 🙂 Seriously, she was saying lines from a movie today. Mark my words!!! (this coming from a proud mom)

Addison decided our first star-pops would be made with lots of berries. You can use fresh, frozen or canned.

Nutrition Tip: Frozen fruits are just as healthy as fresh. If you choose canned, the healthiest selection would be fruit canned in their own juices, avoid any syrups.

Addi’s Berry Star Pops

~2 cups frozen berries

~8 ounces of 100% juice (we used apple)

Blend ingredients until smooth in a blender. (You might pulse for a little while for some of the frozen fruit pieces)

Pour into pop molds or an ice-cube tray if you don’t have a mold.

Place in freezer until set. When ready to eat, run cool water over the mold/or bottom of ice-cube tray to help release them. And Enjoy!

Brent getting in on the action. 🙂

Dinner was light because 1. Kids ate dinner at the grandparents house and 2. I indulged a little too much on fried pig ears, bone marrow and a pricey cocktail that tasted like spring in a glass over the Memorial Day Holiday weekend. Yum- Yum

Banana-Chocolate-PB shake! Always a quick go-to meal.

**Notice the New Glarus glass – my Man’s favorite brewery.
