Frozen Smoothie Pops

This kid pleasing summer snack is taken from a source close to my heart -  Recipe can be easily improvised to your own tastes.

Frozen Smoothie Pops

Triple Berry Smoothie Pops:
1 cup (250 mL) fresh or frozen strawberries 

1 cup (250 mL) fresh or frozen blueberries
1 tbsp (15 mL) sugar or liquid honey
1 cup (250 mL) 
1/2 cup (125 mL) raspberry-flavoured 

Banana Pineapple Smoothie Pops:
1 very ripe banana
1 cup (250 mL) frozen or drained canned pineapple chunks
1 to 2 tbsp (15 to 30 mL) sugar or liquid honey
1 cup (250 mL) milk
1/2 cup (125 mL) vanilla-flavoured or plain yoghurt


In a blender, combine fruit and honey or sugar (as called for, to taste) and milk; purée until smooth. Add yoghurt and pulse just until combined. Pour into ice-pop moulds and insert sticks, or pour into 1/3 cup (80 mL) paper cups. If using paper cups, freeze until partially firm then insert sticks, straws or plastic spoons.
Freeze until solid, for 2 to 4 hours or up to 2 weeks.
