Optimistically wishing for warm weather, I thought I would start the beginning of May with these beach glass-hued popsicles! With another cappuccino sip, I’ve just booked a massage for tomorrow and I am currently in the midst of packing for Venice as I’ll be taking off in a few days! Without further ado, I’ll leave you with these darling pastel pops!
These green popsicles are an easy way to kill your sweet craving, if you are looking for a healthy alternative. As you all know, I’m obsessed with green smoothies so these pops are a favorite spring and summer delight of mine. I love the fresh flavour, they are cleansing and hydrating making them a pleasure to enjoy! You can essentially blend any smoothie and freeze it, may it be from berries, fruits or this delicious pale green flavour. It’s key to fold in the yogurt (rather than fully blend) for a thick consistency/ colour swirl making it also easier to place the wooden sticks standing up. The mint adds a refreshing spring flavour while the dates add a welcomed natural sweetness. These popsicles make a pretty setup for a girly brunch, a garden party or if you are enjoy those sun rays.
Green smoothie Popsicle
- 2 cups thick green yogurt
- Chunk of ginger (about 2cm x 2cm)
- 1 cup spinach
- 1 juice of lemon
- 1 cup mint
- 1 banana
- 2 juicy dates (or runny honey for sweetness)
- Water (about 2-3 tablespoons water)
In a blender, add a bit of water to the bottom and a few tablespoons of the thick yogurt. Add the ginger, lemon, spinach, mint, banana and dates. Blend into a smooth liquid. Fold in the thick greek yogurt for a lovely swirl colour effect. Pour into molds and freeze until solid. Garnish with coconut flakes, chia seeds and tiny flowers or herbs.
