Trying to get your kids to eat a bowl full of greens might not be a reality for you. But getting them to eat a popsicle, probably is! We believe that offering your kids fruits and vegetables in a variety of ways, using a variety of preparation methods is the most effective way to get them to eat lots of different fruits and vegetables. This Green Frog Pops Recipe is a great way to offer kids not only spinach, but other fruits along with it in a really fun way!
To make these you will need 4 ingredients, a blender, and popsicle molds. We love our Zoku pop molds because you can make popsicles in 7 minutes, start to finish! We also love the mini pop molds because they are the perfect size for a toddler. Any popsicle mold will work great though. Our ingredients for this popsicle are spinach, banana, frozen mango, and coconut water. The combination makes these super sweet, packed with nutrition, and bright green! Blend together until smooth, and then pour into your molds. Freeze and enjoy!
Sometimes you don’t know if your kids will like the things you make. My kids (including our neighbor friend) loved these! When my kids have friends over playing, they become my test subjects 🙂 They asked what was in them and I told them, and they weren’t even phased. I told them I was making Frog Pops and they were super excited to try them just because of the name.
