Superfood Popsicles Recipe
  • 1-2 cups water (depending on how icy or thick you want the popsicles)
  • 2 teaspoons sesame seeds (a great source of calcium)
  • 2 teaspoons hemp seeds (a great source of clean protein and Omega 3's)
  • 2 cups (or less) berries (a great source of fiber, antioxidants, and color)
  • ½ cup greens like lettuce or kale (a great source of phytonutrients)
  • ½ chopped zucchini (a very good source of Vitamin A and potassium)
  • 1 small wedge of lemon with peel (a good source of Vitamin C)
  • ¼ avocado OR ¼ cup raw cashews (optional to make recipe creamier)
  • ¼ cup raisins (optional to sweeten recipe) (great source of iron)
  1. Buy some silicone popsicle or ice pops molds. I chose the brand Popushi (Sunsella Mighty Pops is also recommended) because they don't require any sticks. That means there's no waste at all (yay!) They're also easier to handle, especially for little kids, so there's less mess. There are plenty of plastic, and even BPA-free, popsicle molds to choose from, but silicone (or stainless steel) is touted as a healthier and greener choice.
  2. Make a yummy, superfood smoothie with as many organic ingredients as possible in order to by pass any pesticide residue. Strawberries, peaches, blueberries, and so many other fruits are perfect alone or combined together. I made a fantastic virgin piña colada combo last weekend. You'll also want to add in some Omega's and clean-burning protein like flaxseeds and hemp seeds. Pour in some water or homemade, nondairy milk, then toss in some kale and you're ready to rock. If you're sharing with kids you can also add in some extra raisins or a couple dates to make the popsicles naturally sweeter.
  3. Pour the smoothie into the molds, leaving just enough room for the lids to fit in, put the lids on, stick the molds in the freezer and let the magic begin.
