Recipe For Smoothie Mini Pops

Head straight on to the recipe for Smoothie Mini Pops ♥

I have been known to have a smoothie for breakfast when time is on my hands. You have to be organized, with fruit ready to go in the freezer and the varieties are endless. The health benefits are also great and to that end I froze some left over mixture to make Smoothie Mini Pops.

I wanted to buy my nieces a gift that they would be able to use for a long time. Something that was practical, and could be used for treats. I decided to get them the Zoku Mini Pop maker and of course I could not resist playing around with it before packing it in my suitcase to take to them.

The reason I like this mini pop maker is that you can top up the pops as you empty them and they will freeze just about anything. I tried to make margaritas first, but the alcohol would not freeze, no matter how much I diluted it. And frankly, how much fun would diluted alcoholic pops really be on a hot summers’ day? I made a breakfast smoothie and froze 9 mini pops to enjoy in the heat. Dave and I tested them out the following afternoon and they really hit the spot. I used 3 of the moulds to make my tartufo which worked really well. I discovered that children don’t really like the texture of the almonds in my smoothie mini pops as more were discarded than eaten by the little ones. In Johannesburg Sasha, Nadia and I made chocolate pops using the hot chocolate I had received in my FOMO box. They absolutely loved them and I hope they will enjoy many years of pop making.Smoothie Mini Pops

    1. I forgot to peel them first and found they were so easy to do when frozen. I just used a serrated knife 🙂

  12. You’ve been really creative with your Zoku maker! I had one but alas the salt leaked out from inside the maker. What a shame as it was lots of fun!

    1. That is not good Lorraine. This one does not have the salt and need to be kept in the freezer 🙂

  14. What a cool idea Tandy. I often make a smoothie for breakfast so I can drink it when putting my make up on in the mornings. I could freeze some for dessert later! Never thought about that 🙂
