it’s officially may and it’s 80 here today so that means i’m making more popsicles. I just threw these together and i thought i would share for any of you who are making your own.

I am not a recipe follower by nature so popsicles and smoothies are right up my alley. I basically threw all this into the blender:

2 small handfuls of spinach

3 big organic strawberries

1 handful of blueberries

1/2 a bag of frozen organic raspberries

sprinkled in a bit of flax-seed meal and a 3 count pour of all natural ohio maple syrup {because it has one of the lowest caloric counts of the natural sweeteners but any natural sweetener of your choice would do}

then i added some cherry juice until the juice reached about the halfway point of the rest of the ingredients.

blend until smooth and pour into your reusable popsicle molds and if you’re lucky you’ll have some left over as a smoothie. if you don’t have popsicle molds you can just do what i did as a kid and freeze them in ice-cube trays then eat them with a spoon out of a tumbler. this requires letting them freeze them putting them in the tumbler and leaving it to sit for about 5-10 minutes. You can see that you need a lot more patience for that method but it will do until you order your popsicle molds.

and if you are too impatient for that then…just enjoy it as a bodaciously excellent smoothie. you’re welcome.
