Summer vacation for kids means you have to gear up with quite a lot of extra energy to keep yourself as active as they are, isn’t it?! My kids want to play the whole day…sometimes they are so excited about playing that they would not simply spend some of their “precious” time in “useless projects” like eating! But then, we are moms. We know how to make our kids eat!
So when my kids refuse to have the usual “healthy” food comprising milk, fruits, eggs, bread, yogurt, etc., sometimes I make something fancy out of these. Why not make some super-easy, healthy and colourful popsicles with lots of fruits and yogurt for your kids! I add some honey along with a little sugar, which makes this even more healthier. I am sure they are going to enjoy this and ask you for more!
Fresh Mango-Berry-Yogurt Popsicles
Ingredients (for six popsicles):
- Yogurt (divided): 3 tbsp
- Mango pulp: 4 tbsp
- Coconut milk: 4 tbsp
- Sugar (divided): 2 tsp
- Honey (divided): 2 tbsp
- Fresh cherries (deseeded and chopped): 6
- Strawberries (chopped): 3
- Banana (big one, chopped): 2 tbsp
- Mint leaves (finely chopped): 2
Method of Preparation:
Put the coconut milk and the mango pulp, alongwith 1 tbsp honey and 1 tsp sugar into a blender and blend it very well. Fill this into the popsicle moulds to the level you desire.
For the second (berry) layer, add the cherries, strawberries and banana into the blender. Add 1 tbsp yogurt and rest of the sugar. Blend to a fine paste. Pour this over the first layer in those moulds.
The third layer is done with the leftover contents of the second layer sticking to the blender. Add to this 2 tbsp yogurt, chopped mint leaves and the rest of the honey.
Tap the moulds lightly and close them with the sticks.
Chill them in the deep freezer. Ready to serve anytime!
