In case some of you haven’t been watching the national weather, it’s HOT here in Texas! Since our family seems to get caught up in Murphy’s Law more often than not, it’s really no surprise that not only did it work out that we moved here smack dab in the middle of July, but that there would be a heat wave going on too! The other day it soared up to temperatures where the heat index hit 108!
That means we’ve been doing A LOT to cool down. One of those things is eating frosty treats, and armed with a recipe from eMeals, I made Orange Banana Smoothie pops for our family to enjoy the other evening.
- 7 oz of Greek yogurt
- ⅔ cup thawed orange juice concentrate
- 2 bananas
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- Purée all ingredients in a blender. Pour into a popsicle mold or into paper cups and then insert a stick in the middle. Freeze until hardened (about 6 hours).
Watermelon Ice Pops
4 cups watermelon, seeds removed, cubed. Purée in blender. Pour into a popsicle mold or into paper or plastic cups and then insert a stick in the middle. Freeze until hardened (about 6 hours).
I love using the plastic dixie cups for these. I sometimes have trouble getting pops to unmold from our popsicle maker, but using the handles from the mold and then using a plastic cup makes it easy to remove once frozen.
Even the big kids like these!
