Antioxidant Power Pops

What appeals to me most about this summertime snack solution is in the colorful and fun presentation, equally cooling and delicious! It’s packed with protein, fiber, antioxidants, and also high in Omega-3‘s; well known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Sit back, relax in the breeze and share them with the little ones.

    • Cheryl, Thanks for writing. Even kids love these! I usually make the smoothie for a snack and because it usually makes so much, I use what is left for the pops. It’s a good feeling knowing nothing is being wasted.
