I love a recipe that can be used in multiple ways, don’t you? So I came up with a smoothie that works equally well as a refreshing sip, and a frozen treat!
The only thing you need to change when you convert this from a smoothie into a pop is to add slices of kiwi to the ice pop molds. Easy peasy! It’s nearly spring and I can’t wait to cool off with these refreshing, kid-friendly pops. Even though these are vegan, you’ll be amazed at how creamy they are!
Makes 2 smoothies or 6 ice pops
8 ounces plain or vanilla plant milk
1 kiwi, peeled
1/2 ripe avocado
juice and zest of a lemon
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 of a baby cucumber
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
In a blender, combine all the ingredients. If serving as a smoothie, pour into a glass and enjoy! If making ice pops, peel and slice another kiwi into rounds. Place a kiwi slice into each of 6, 3-ounce ice pop molds. Pour 3 ounces of the mixture into each ice pop and freeze for 5 to 6 hours or overnight. Run the ice pop under warm water and cool off!
