Convenient Popsicles

Have you ever made something and you left out a step in the recipe that made all the difference in how it turned out? I did that recently, and I got so frustrated with myself. I was making some snack/energy balls, which just consists of putting all the ingredients into a bowl, then mixing. After that, it needs to set up in the fridge for a bit so they can almost dry a little, so they are easier to roll into balls. Well, after mixing all of the ingredients, I immediately try to roll into balls, they are of course too sticky. So, I add more oats, still sticky; I add even more oats! Ugh, why aren't these rolling they are supposed to?! Then I realize, I was supposed to let them set in the fridge for a bit before I even rolled them into balls. Call it pregnant brain, momma brain whatever; oh well I thought, I just have a decent size bowl of granola.

Don't you hate when that happens?

I posted a while back about some popsicles and other things I made to take on our beach trip. Of course, I made the popsicles once we got there and they were super easy to make.
 
Sometimes it's hard to get our kids to eat the amount of vegetables we would like for them to eat. I came across another popsicle recipe that included fruits and vegetables. I'm sure it may not sound good to mix carrots or spinach along with other ingredients to make a popsicle, but hey, you don't know until you try, right? I put spinach in my smoothies all the time, and you can't taste it! 

I love recipes by Livesimply.me and this one is toddler approved. Check out her popsicle recipe I tried. Livesimply.me

Look at that color!!

 

Since my son never finishes a whole popsicle at one time, I just put them back in the same mold and pop it back in the freezer.

I don't think homemade popsicles can get much easier, or healthy!
