For most, Labor Day marks the end of summer, but not the end of the heat, especially here in Texas.
To help cool me down I made some tasty Zip pops, using Zipzicle, a zip-top ice-pop mold. I love these things, because I control the ingredients without the worries of allergies, dyes or too much sugar.
It's so simple and easy to transform fresh fruits and veggies, yes, I said veggies, into ice-pops. this is a great way to get more veggies into your little ones or big ones. Although fresh fruits have natural sweetness, I added maple syrup to sweeten just a bit more.
Basically, take your smoothies and transformed them to ice-pops. These frozen treats can be loaded with powerful disease fighting foods, making them, not just tasty, but good for you too!
Raspberry Smoothie Ice-Pops
1lb. fresh raspberries
2 tablespoons, fresh lemon juice
6 oz. plain Greek yogurt
3 tablespoons, maple syrup
1. Place raspberries into blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour mixture thur a mesh strainer to rid the mixture of the seeds.
3. Blend raspberry sauce with lemon juice, Greek yogurt and maple syrup until smooth.
4. Pour mixture into Zipzicle bags to the fill line, zip and place in freezer to freeze.
5. When all frozen, ENJOY!
Green Smoothie Pop
Use 2 bananas, juice of 2 lemons, 2 kiwis
and two handfuls of kale.
The combinations are limitless, use whatever fruit and veggies you have on hand, if you are on a dairy free diet, omit the yogurt.

My daughter likes to put flavored yogurt in them and freeze for after school treats.
