Strawberry Banana Popsicles….With a twist!

With summer just around the corner, and weather starting warm up, I foresee a lot of popsicle recipes being posted. This popsicle is healthy enough that you can eat it for breakfast, and tasty enough to eat for dessert!
Not to mention the colours are wonderful and it has also been confirmed by my sixteen-year-old brother, you cannot taste the spinach ๐Ÿ™‚

Banana layer:
2 Bananas
2 handfuls of Spinach
3 tbs Vanilla Yogurt (approx.)
about 1/2 a cup of water (or as needed)

Strawberry layer:
3 cups cut strawberries
1/2 cup Vanilla Yogurt
water, as needed to blend.

***Add some honey to either layer if you would prefer them sweeter.

1. Make whichever layer you would like first by adding all the ingredients for that layer into the blender and blending until smooth.
2. Pour the contents of the blender into whatever you are using as a popsicle mold, up to about the half way mark.
3. Freeze the first layer with the popsicle stick in it.
4. Once frozen you can make the second layer in the blender, then pour it over the first layer in the mold. Now place back in the freezer to complete the process. Once fully frozen, eat and enjoy!
