I enjoy having a good green smoothie as a meal replacement or an afternoon snack to starve off the junk food snacks. However, the kids aren’t all fans of a smoothie. But, they are fans of a yummy ice pop. So, why not combine the best of both worlds into something the kids will enjoy and is better for them then a lot of snacks they would get from a package.

I whipped up these dairy-free smoothie ice pops in the morning while they were getting ready for school and they were frozen by the time they got off the bus. I’ve been using milk alternatives in my smoothies so I continued with these so I could enjoy them. This time I use Vanilla Silk Soymilk because it is a good source of protein (8 grams of plant-powered protein per serving) and because it is low in saturated fat. That protein will tide them over after school until dinner. Or it makes a protein packed dessert.

This time, I used freshly picked strawberries because we picked them, but frozen will also work, spinach (which I accidentally put in the freezer) and chia seeds. But, any smoothie of your liking will work! I put one cup of strawberries, a handful of spinach, a cup of soy milk and 2 Tablespoons of chia seeds into my blender, and blended until smooth. Then, I filled my ice pop molds and placed them in the freezer. (side note: if you don’t have molds, you can use little paper cups with a wooden stick). They were frozen less than 8 hours later!

    What a great idea! I added it to my mommy pin board to remember when it’s my turn. I’ve been using dairy-free milk for ages. I don’t miss it! Cheese on the other hand… Oh I love you cheese.

    Kindness is the best accessory,

  3. These look so yummy! I’ll have to try them soon. And by the way, those are the coolest popsicle molds I’ve seen!

    1. They are good and so easy to make…plus, you can use whatever you like in them!

      And, the rockets? I think I got the molds elsewhere, but I found them on amazon!
