Strawberry Popsicle’s Packed With Vegetables

These strawberry popsicles are packed with blueberries, kale, yellow squash and nutritious almond milk! Enjoy these fruit and veggie ice pops as a smoothie or turned into popsicles! 


We just cannot help ourselves eating ice pops like strawberry popsicles, basil lemon popsicles, or these strawberry cheesecake popsicles every day pretty much any time of the year! Really because I love making a healthy “smoothie” pop that is packed with fruits, veggies, and ingredients that I know my kids love and are getting tons of nutrients from. These strawberry popsicles are really just a fruit smoothie blended with vegetables and almond milk for a full balance snack or dessert treat poured and frozen in a popsicle mold.

My 3 year old (holy moly he is 3 already!) asks for popsicles almost daily. Occasionally I will grab an all-fruit store bought version if I have neglected to plan ahead and accelerate the process of making homemade popsicles. But I much prefer being able to add fresh vegetables and fruits to ensure we are consuming extra daily nutrition. So forget the traditional store bought popsicles and make them at home!

Yellow squash is one of those beneficial vegetables (along with zucchini) that can be pureed into smoothies and baked goods because their flavor is subtle. I prefer yellow squash with strawberries because it keeps the “smoothie” base beautiful in a natural light pink color. And since we love strawberry popsicles why not add veggies into the mix?

Here come the details:

How To Make A Layered Fruit & Veggie Strawberry Popsicle Recipe:

  1. Make layer one by adding strawberries, squash, banana, almond milk, maple syrup, lemon and vanilla into a blender. Puree it until it is a super smooth smoothie consistency. Add it to a popsicle mold filling it up ⅓ full then freeze for about 10-15 minutes to set.
  2. Make layer two by splitting the remaining strawberry popsicles mixture into two cups. This reserves pink for another layer and lets us add ingredients for the darker purple fruit and veggie layer. To make the rich purple layer pour 1 of the reserved cups of strawberry squash smoothie back into the blender. Add ¼ cup of kale and ½ cup of frozen blueberries. Blend well then add that layer to the popsicles filling up another ⅓ of the popsicle mold. Set it in the fridge for about 10 minutes then add the final layer of pink strawberry banana and add the popsicle sticks at this point. Freeze for 4-6 hours until hard and then the veggie packed strawberry popsicles are ready to enjoy!

Additionally these vegetable fruit strawberry popsicles have tons of nutritional vitamins and minerals in them. It is a great way to get kids to eat squash too!

Squash is packed with vitamin B-6, magnesium, vitamin A, fiber and has protein in it too! Strawberries and blueberries are wonderful antioxidants and full of vitamin C. Bananas pack on the potassium and kale boosts consumption of magnesium and is rich in vitamin C, A and B-6! Total wining in the nutrient department when eating these nutrient veggie packed strawberry Popsicle recipe!

Any remaining smoothie we drink as a snack while we wait for our strawberry popsicles to freeze.

Total sweet tooth gratification and bliss!
