Easy Homemade Pops

We live in Texas, so the weather here is HOT HOT! So to keep our tot cool and hydrated, my husband and I make popsicles. He started juicing for us to get some power kicks in the morning. So he suggested filling up our son's popsicle molds with some of his juice. This is the perfect way for our son to get some of his fruits and veggies.
He absolutely LOVES them. Here are some healthy recipes for some refreshing pops.


  • 1 orange (peeled)
  • 4 carrots 
  • 1 apple (cored)
  • 4 pineapple chunks
Juice all ingredients in juicer. We like Jack Lalanne's JLSS Power Juicer

  • 1/4c yogurt
  • 10-12 fresh organic strawberries (rinsed and hulled)
