Green Smoothie Parfait Popsicles are a quick and healthy way to get your morning started this Summer! They’re the perfect start to a hot day or a healthy snack to keep you on track in the afternoon.
I am happy to be a partner with ADA Mideast and bring you this dairy-filled recipe that my family loves.
I’ve tried for so long to be a GSD (Green Smoothie Drinker). As much as I love a healthy breakfast I just can’t give up my frothy warm morning cup of coffee for a cold bitter green smoothie. Believe me I’ve tried! Here’e the thing though- I have kids that I’m supposed to be all responsible for. That includes setting a good example even when it comes to healthy eating.
So in my quest to become a GSD I have made many, many green smoothies. Sometimes they turn brown from all the berries I like to put in there. Sometimes at the last minute I forego the “green” all together and just enjoy a cheery pink strawberry banana smoothie. But a few months ago I found my green smoothie nirvana and we’ve been enjoying it every week. Since my kids like frozen treats in the hot summer months I knew this naturally sweet green smoothie parfait would make the perfect popsicles!
One of my sons struggles to reach his daily protein requirement so I’m always looking for creative ways to incorporate some of his favorite sources of protein. Six ounces of Greek yogurt typically contains 14-17 grams of protein which will leave you fuller longer! It’s creamy, healthy, and delicious too. I don’t add any additional sugar to these Green Smoothie Parfait Popsicles because I like the sweet taste of mango and pineapple, but you may like to add up to 1 tablespoon honey, agave, or sugar.
