Want Your Kids to Eat Their Veggies? Make Them into Sneaky Ice Pops!

My four-year old daughter, Snugglebug, has a medical condition. The condition itself isn't important for the purposes of this post, but being the natural healing fan I am, I was really excited to hear from a holistic mama that carrot juice may help alleviate the condition.

The big challenge, of course, is figuring out how to get my kid to drink carrot juice. I love my juicer, but for some reason, my little princess isn't impressed with it.

So, like any desperate mama trying to force-feed her kid something good for her, I got sneaky. I turned the carrot juice into sweet ice pops, and now Snugglebug can't get enough of them. I've been serving them for dessert all week!

Here's what I did:

Carrot "Yogurt" Pops


3 carrots
2 apples
1 banana
1 c. vegan vanilla soy yogurt

You'll also need:

a juicer
a blender


With your juicer, juice carrots and apple.

In a blender, puree banana until smooth. Add yogurt and carrot-apple juice to blender pitcher and blend all until well-mixed.

Pour into ice pop molds and freeze.

Tip: If frozen pops are difficult to remove from molds, run some hot water over the outside of the molds, until the pops slide out easily.
