Let’s turn some smoothies into popsicles.

You can turn your smoothies into popsicles. It’s a fun, quick and easy way to get fruits, vegetables and good fats into your family. Here’s a few simple ones we love. Let’s turn some smoothies in popsicles!! Get super creative with this, you can juice carrots and make a pineapple, mango and carrot smoothie popsicle, remember to add a good fat to make it creamy like yogurt, avocados or full fat coconut milk. When you add good fat into your smoothies, it’s amazing for kids developing brains, it also gives them energy throughout the day, that’s not coming from sugar. It also makes the popsicles really creamy. Happy popsicle making. Moms and Dads we got this. šŸ˜‰

Here’s one of my favorites, Chai Tea Smoothie Popsicle, it’s an awesome smoothie, pour it in molds and it’s even better on a hot summer’s day.

Chai Tea Smoothie Popsicles

Ingredients:

1 can full fat coconut milk

1 cup sweetened vanilla almond milk

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cardamom

1/4 teaspoon ground clove

1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

Three chai tea bags

1 scoop Vegan protein powder

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Ice cubes

Instructions:

In a medium saucepan on medium heat add the coconut milk and almond milk. Once the milks developed small bubbles around the edges, stir in the spices, whisking as you go, so they don’t clump together. Once the spices are added and the milk comes to a gentle boil, remove from heat and add tea bags. Allow to steep for 5 minutes or longer, if you want a strong tea. Allow the chai tea to cool, completely.

Add 1 scoop @vega_team vegan protein powder with greens to a blender, then the chai tea mixture, maple syrup or honey to taste and ice. Blend, adjust if you need more liquid or ice. Start with just a little ice to make sure you get the consistency you are looking for. If you want it thicker throw in a banana. Enjoy. #happy #summer #ideas
