Green Smoothie Herb Popsicles

Sweet treats in the heat of the summer are an essential part of childhood. Just like playing in the grass with bare feet and splashing through a stream in the woods catching minnows and crayfish. It all just goes together.


I remember laying on the grass eating push-ups in the summer.
















They never really tasted that good, it was more for the novelty of the experience. Of course, the push-up is completely void of any nutrition. So… what is a real food mom to do? Of course, there are endless banana ice cream variations and special desserts…
