Instructions

Making Each Color

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. If it’s too thick, add some more liquid.
  2. Transfer the smoothie to a bowl or container, rinse the blender and prep the next color.

Assembling the Healthy Rainbow Popsicles

  1. Find a popsicle mold big enough to hold 15 popsicles or multiple molds that fit up to 15 popsicles.
  2. Begin layering the colors. Use a spoon to scoop each color into the mold (s). (Using a spoon instead of pouring it into the mold will make it easier for the colors to blend naturally.)
  3. Once the molds are filled and ready, add sticks and freeze the popsicles overnight.

Getting the Healthy Rainbow Popsicles From the Mold

  1. To get the popsicles free from the mold, fill your kitchen sink with room temperature water. Place the mold in the water, making sure the water does not go above the top of the mold. Allow the mold to sit for a few seconds.
  2. Start to wiggle a popsicle back and forth. If it’s still a challenge to get the popsicle out, put them back in the water for a few more seconds.
  3. Last, but not least, enjoy your healthy homemade rainbow popsicles!
