Fueling a family of any number can be time consuming, expensive, and tricky (to say the least) . I must admit that I buy whole organic milk for my husband, my son, and our au pair (and try not to cringe as they drink it) and then buy my own separate non-dairy "milk" for me. I buy one brand of gluten-free pasta for our au pair, another for my husband and son...and, occasionally, yet another for me. R-I-D-I-C-U-L-O-U-S (I know). So, you can imagine, when I find a healthy recipe that the whole family enjoys, I am beyond thrilled and am eager to share.
This is one of these recipes!!!
The only problem: I rarely get to enjoy these superfood packed, super delicious popsicles because my family manages to just about always eat them before I can get one! Maybe it is time to invest in some more popsicle molds and double up on this recipe, huh!?
FYI, if you don't have any popsicle molds yet, you have options. On the super "budget" DIY side, you can freeze your "pops" in an ice cub tray and then stick popsicle sticks into them (it can get a little messy). On the still pretty budget side, you can order molds like the ones on the right (which is what I do) and then practice the art of patience while you wait for your pops to freeze! Or, if you are willing to spend a little more for (almost) instant gratification, you can invest in Zoku's quick pop maker (like the ones on the far right).
Berry [Bodhi Superfood Pops]
[VEGAN; GLUTEN FREE; NO ADDED SUGAR]
- 2 Bananas
- 6 ounces mixed berries (I used an organic frozen berry mix from Costco)
- 1/2 cup raw cashews (if you have the time, soak them in warm water for at least 2 hrs and then drain...ti make them more easily digestible)
- 1 tbs chia seeds
- 2 tbs of your favorite non-dairy milk (if you have the time, let the chia sit in this milk for a couple of hours before you combine both into the rest of the ingredients)
- Peel the bananas
- Add all of the ingredients to a high speed blender and blend until smooth
- Spoon ingredients into popsicle mold using a funnel (otherwise it gets so so so messy)
- Wait the required time depending on what mold you use. (With these molds, I typically wait 6-8 hours)
- Remove pops from mold as instructed (I run these under warm water for 30 seconds and then easily remove the pops)
- EAT. REPEAT. ENJOY!
