Strawberry Fruitsicle

I am always amazed at the mechanics of a child's eardrum.  You can stand no more than two feet in front of them and ask them to do something, and they somehow cannot hear you - but at the sound of an ice cream truck (two blocks away!) and they are screaming through the house trying to beg for any change they can dig up. Go figure. These amazing little delights however will save you the change and give you piece of mind, because they are healthy and packed full of fruit. Let them have two.


1 Frozen Banana
2 Cups Frozen Strawberries
1/2 Cup Low-Fat Vanilla Yogurt
1/8-1/4 tsp Powdered Stevia (depending on your taste)
1 tsp Chia Seeds
1 tsp Vanilla
Just enough milk to get your blender to run


A high powered blender is optimal for this recipe. You could probably do it with a regular blender, your final product will just be less thick.

Put all ingredients into your blender. Adjust the amount of milk based on how your blender is performing - use just enough to get it to mix everything, but only just enough. Blend until completely mixed and your ingredients resemble a sorbet. I have a Vitamix, so I use the tamper to push down the ingredients as I blend them, as I like this to be as thick as ice cream. Sometimes I will even stop here and just eat it like this for lunch. Who the heck would complain about eating ice cream for lunch?!!

To make your fruitsicle, spoon mixture into popsicle molds.... don't have any, no worries. I made mine in Dixie Cups and it turned out great and just the right size. Once all molds are filled, place in your sticks and freeze. You should be good to rock it and shock it in about two hours.
