Three Healthy Pops Aloha Green & Vitamin C



Recipes: Aloha Green Pops Can't forget dessert. These gorgeous (and guilt-free) popsicles might melt before you get to the park, but they're perfect for a backyard picnic -- which is sometimes the best kind, anyhow.

Ingredients (serves 6):
1 cup coconut water
1 cup pineapple juice
5 cups mixed greens
1 cup frozen mango chunks
1/2 cup frozen strawberries
1 tablespoon ground chia seeds
6 fresh strawberries, sliced thin
1/2 fresh mango, peeled and cut into thin slices (or extra frozen mango chunks, sliced thin)
6 small paper cups and wooden popsicle sticks, or a popsicle mold

Directions:
Add all ingredients (excluding the fresh fruit), in order, into a blender. Blend until smooth. Press 4 to 6 slices of fresh strawberries and mangos around the sides of your molds or paper cups, then pour in popsicle mix very gently to avoid disturbing the fruit. You want the fruit to show its bright color on the surface of the pops, so depending on your equipment, you may want to do add the fruit in stages, freezing the mixture into a slushy consistency between additions to hold the fruit in place. When the molds are filled, insert popsicle sticks and freeze until set.

 ORANGE DREAMCICLE POP

Ingredients:

Vanilla Cream

  • 1 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 4 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Orange Cream

  • 3 packets of Emergen-C Kidz® Orange vitamin drink mix
  • 1/2 cup Greek-style yogurt
  • 1/2 cup almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons honey

Directions:

Mix the ingredients for the vanilla cream in a medium bowl and set aside. In a separate bowl, mix the ingredients for the orange cream. Let flavors meld for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, place a large plate in the freezer. Using a popsicle mold, freeze the vanilla cream according to the popsicle mold directions. Once frozen, dip the pops in the orange cream to coat, using a spoon to help cream stick on any hard-to-reach surfaces. Place dipped ice pops on the cold plate and place back in the freezer for 10 minutes. Then, dip pops in orange cream for a second time, and freeze for an additional 15 minutes.
