Yogurt Kale Popsicles (that kids will actually eat)

This post is seriously fabulous. That’s why it’s brought to you by The Everyday Collection by TargetClick here to explore more of the collection. Click here to see more of the discussion.

Summer is coming, and that means lots of sunshine and outdoor play . . . which in my house translates to hungry kids. I’ve been trying to strategize some easy, healthy treats. Getting my kids to eat their veggies is always a challenge, and this week I tried a new treat that did the trick. In fact, it worked so well that I”m still pinching myself a little bit, because all four of my kids just downed a hefty serving of kale. Willingly. Oh happy day!

Yogurt Kale Popsicles

I know, I know. The thought of “kale pops” makes me shudder, too. But the creamy yogurt and sweet fruit really masked the veggies well. Here’s what I did. First, I added the following ingredients to a high-power blender (like the Blendtec or Ninja):

1/2 cup plain nonfat yogurt

1/2 cup fresh kale

1/2 cup frozen pineapple

1/2 cup frozen strawberries

1 tbsp stevia (to sweeten)

I blended until smooth, and then poured the ingredients into popsicle molds.  I let them sit for about 3 hours, and then popped them out of the molds.

They were a hit! All of the kids ate them up, and asked to make more for the following day. Packed with healthy probiotics, greens, and fruit, I think these will be our go-to summer treat.

Do you have any other ideas for hiding the veggies?
