15 Minutes : Make It : Fruit Popsicles

My kids love any excuse to make Popsicles and with the weather really warming up we're going to have to start making batches of these yummy, yet healthy, treats. Typically we make our favorite fruit and yogurt smoothie and freeze it in either molds or small paper cups with sticks. The kids love adding ingredients to the blender and helping pour and freeze the Popsicles. The anticipation is the real killer.

Below there's a recipe for Orange Banana Popsicles that my grandma always had handy in the freezer. La Tartine Gourmande also has some great gourmet versions too.

Orange-Banana Popsicles

1 - 8 oz container yogurt, any flavor or plain
1 - 12 oz can frozen orange juice mixed with 3 cans of water
1 - 14 oz can pineapple juice
5 very ripe bananas

Mix and freeze.

I add silken tofu and call this a healthy summer breakfast.
