In California (where we live) as well as many states beyond, it still feels like summer outside. All last week I picked up overheated kids from school begging for something cool to eat or drink. Wanting to make sure Kenya and Chloe reach for a nutritious, yet fun treat to fill their bellies with a good for you snack, I made dozens (I mean an entire freezer full) of these Rainbow Yogurt Popsicles.
Not only are they gorgeous to look with all of the vibrant colors throughout, but they’re made with superfoods like acai and spinach as well as mango, blackberries, raspberries and pineapple. The best part is the 10 grams of protein per serving in the yogurt I used as the base for these totally irresistible popsicles!
I made one dozen with our family favorite plain yogurt and another with vanilla yogurt to see if the kids would prefer one flavor over the other in the Rainbow Yogurt Popsicles, but they licked them both up till they were only left with their sticks in hand.
I originally made these wholesome popsicles with Kenya and Chloe in mind, but guess who’s also a big fan? I’ve been giving Gemma one on warm afternoons and let her lop it up on her own. It’s the cutest thing watching a baby suck on these Rainbow Yogurt Popsicles and they’re great for her too!
I made this Rainbow Yogurt Popsicles video so you can have a few tips to help make these quick and easy. It’s a really fun activity to prepare with your kids, so get them in the kitchen to make and eat them with you!
