My daughter is in preschool and I pack her a lunch each day. However, what you might not know is that I also pack her snacks. I consider snack time another opportunity to get something nourishing in her body.
I often quickly make myself a kefir smoothie in the morning as my light breakfast until I have time to make something more substantial and lately my daughter has taken to sharing them with me. And from here the smoothie Popsicle was born!
I basically make my smoothie and pour any leftovers into these great little silicone Popsicle molds and then freeze them. I send one each day with her for her morning snack and she says it stays frozen quite nicely. She loves them. This is a great grab and go snack idea! But doesn’t freezing kill the probiotics? Nope! Check out this post which nicely debunks that myth.
Grab and Go Snack: Smoothie Popsicle Recipe
