FOODIE: Yummy Yogurt Smoothies + Frozen Pops

Yogurt smoothies are a favorite in my house, usually for breakfast, but are really yummy at any time of day. There are really no rules when it comes to smoothie making, just throw in what you have or love. For us, this usually consists of:

-about 1 cup of orange juice

-about 1 cup of yogurt (usually plain or vanilla, but any flavor will do)

-1 frozen banana (you can also use fresh, but freezing your overripe bananas for smoothies is a great way to reduce food waste)

-a handful of berries (also usually frozen)

-about 1 tablespoon of either honey or Agave nectar (the latter being our FAVORITE)

We toss it all in the blender and mix, adding a little more of something if desired after taste testing. I usually make an extra large batch, so we can all have one for breakfast and then pour the rest into homemade popsicle molds for treats later in the week or even a quick breakfast on the run. I bought the popsicle molds at IKEA years ago for $1.99. I also see them at Winco quite often and you'd be surprised how much you use them, especially if you have kids. It's super easy and fun to make your own healthy frozen pops, especially as summer is just around the corner!
