Looking for fun and easy ways to sneak more vegetables into your child’s world!? Aren’t we all? You’re going to love this berry blast popsicle recipe because it contains a secret ingredient. KALE! KALE YEAH, I said it! Kale is not as scary as your kids think it is. Kale’s mild taste makes it easy to sneak into smoothies and popsicles, and it’s so nutrient dense that you’re just going to smile like the creepy Cheshire cat with every bite they take.

I don’t know about your children, but mine can sometimes be “Green-o-Phobes”. Sometimes if a food is too “green”, they won’t even touch it! It’s important to break this stigma by explaining to your kids that green is the color of health and happiness! Greens keep you living well. But, for those kids who just aren’t “there” yet, this popsicle is still going to be a grand slam! It’s bright pink and depending on the magnitude of your blender, there may not even be any green pieces left to see!
- 8 medium-sized strawberries
- 1/4 cup blueberries
- Handful of fresh kale
- 1 cup pure aloe vera juice
- 1 cup water
- Blend to desired consistency and pour mixture into popsicle molds all the way to the top and place in freezer for 2-3 hours or until fully frozen.
- Use organic fruit when possible
For the aloe vera, I recommend an organic aloe vera drink. Aloe vera is an ancient healer filled with vitamins, minerals, and essential amino acids! Depending on the brand, some will contain different ingredients. The one I use does have stevia and a bit of honey to make it lightly sweet. Aloe Vera King makes a great option. If you want to play around with fun flavors, you can choose a flavored aloe drink. There are many different fruity flavors out there.
Tip: After taking your mold out of the freezer, dip mold into warm water for 20-30 seconds to help release the pops.
If you are still second guessing about the kale, don’t worry about it! My 4-year-old didn’t notice the kale at all and gave these ice pops two thumbs up, so they are kid approved!
What is your favorite Summertime treat to make for the kids?
Love & Light,
