Have you ever thought about frozen smoothie bars? It’s a great way to break with the monotony while still enjoying the taste and the benefits of a healthy smoothie. Frozen smoothie bars are great for breakfast and the kids will specially enjoy them.
Below Is The Recipe On How To Make Healthy Frozen Smoothie Bars
- 4 oz. strawberries
- 4 oz. raspberries
- 4 oz. blueberries
- 1 quart plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 honey (optional)
- 1 1/2 cups granola (recipe follows)
In a medium size pan over medium hight heat, combine and cook strawberries and raspberries until it simmers rapidly. Cook for 10-12 minutes, stirring often, until mixture thickens. Remove from heat and let cool to room temperature. Repeat with blueberries. (If berries need some sweetening add 4-5 tablespoons sugar to achieve preferred sweetness.)
In a large bowl, combine and mix together yogurt, milk and honey. Mixture should be thick, but pourable.
Pour a tablespoon or two of yogurt in to each mold. Add a tablespoon of granola and then a tablespoon or two of fruit jam. Continue layering until molds are filled. Tap mold against counter to release any air bubbles. Insert popsicle stick and freeze for at least 6 hours (time will vary according to freezer setting and how full it is). To remove smoothie pops from mold, run it under hot water. Unmold and enjoy! Separate each frozen pop with parchment paper and transfer to freezer. Popsicles will keep for unto three weeks.
