Now, before we dive into these ultra refreshing, ridiculously easy smoothie pops, I want to point your attention to the upper left corner. Do you see that little button that says YUM with a number next to it? I recently joined a super cool recipe site called Yummly. This recipe site has so much to offer. Hundreds of recipes are available to you, with more being added everyday and it’s completely free. If you take a moment to set up an account, they’ll recommend recipes based on your preferences and you can organize your favorite recipes into your own recipe box. That’s where the yum button comes into play. Let’s say you want to add these Blueberry Peach Yogurt Pops to your recipe box. All you have to do is click the yum button and it’ll automatically add it. If you’re interested in seeing my publisher page on yummly click here. Now onto fruity goodness…. These babies!
With a total of 3 ingredients (4 if you add a little stevia or honey for extra sweetness) these frozen peach blueberry smoothie pops are incredibly easy to throw together and the perfect snack to cool down with on a hot summer afternoon. Only 26 calories a piece, they are a nice wholesome “diet friendly” treat for me but also a treat that I feel great about serving my kiddos. A definite nutrition win in the kid snack department. It’s awesome because to them, these are just fun colorful popsicles when really, they are inhaling all the goodness that peaches, blueberries, and yogurt have to offer.
Almost every morning, when my little troublemakers wake up, they ask to eat a smoothie pop out on the back steps. I love that I can say yes! Everyone wins when mommy gets to drink that first cup of coffee in peace;) Feel free to change out the fruit with whatever you have. Fresh or frozen, it doesn’t matter. We also love strawberry banana, as well as black cherry and vanilla yogurt. So many tasty options out there! What are your favorites?

Using popsicle molds (you can find them in any grocery store, I got mine from IKEA) spoon smoothie mix into the molds in varying layers.
Place in freezer for 3 hours or until frozen.
The easiest way to remove from molds is by running briefly under hot water. Enjoy!!
* The yogurt I use is very thin. If yours is thick or you are using Greek yogurt, you may need to add a tablespoon or two of milk.
