Blueberry chia popsicles are a long time favorite in our house. The pretty purple color is pleasant to the eye and you can’t beat all the fiber packed into these pops. The chia seeds hide right along with the blueberry pieces and the kids don’t know they are there. There's some great fat and protein in here too thanks to some avocado (which makes the popsicles extra creamy)
Blueberry Chia Popsicles
Popsicle season is upon us and I couldn't be more excited. We end up eating popsicles all year long but I love them in the summer because I can send the sticky drips outside. With the right mix of ingredient popsicles can turn into a powerhouse of a snack. When you plan and stock the freezer with healthy snacks, you can’t help but say yes when the kids come begging. Trust me on this one, homemade popsicles will make you neighborhood famous in no time and none of the kids will even know you are feeding them healthy snacks. Sometimes I even give these popsicles to my teething toddler when I can’t get him to eat anything else. He likes the cold in his mouth and I feel better knowing he’s getting something nutritious.
And because I'm obsessed with all things popsicle molds I thought I'd share some really neat ones with you today too. I own and love #3 and #6, but let's be honest, I want them all. Aren't they adorable?
I'm pretty in love with all of them! Which is your favorite?
