Orange Banana Smoothie Pops

 

When the weather starts to warm, my family craves cool treats from the freezer. In enters the mean mom.  The one that doesn’t want them to stuff themselves on the sugary, syrupy and dyed popsicles that fill the frozen food aisle.  These delicious and naturally sweet popsicles meet the cool and sweet desires of the kiddos, but also the nutritional ones of mama.  It’s a Win Win! So go ahead – whip up a batch or two, let the kids think they are indulging in a decadent dessert, and enjoy one for yourself too!

    Do you know what adjustments would be needed if plain yogurt is used? Would I need vanilla extract & a sweetener (like honey or maple syrup) to offset it?
