Green Smoothie Popsicles are super easy to make and full of nutritious spinach, avocado, and tropical fruits. The Popsicles taste so yummy; the kids won’t even know that they are getting vegetables in a popsicle!
This post, Green Smoothie Popsicles, is sponsored by Frozen Garden, all opinions are my own.
When it comes to my kids eating habits, they could not be more opposite.
My sweet lil’ missy inherited her father’s adventurous palate while on the opposite end of the spectrum, my son is incredibly picky about what he’ll eat. My missy’s almost always up for trying something new (even if it is just a tiny bite) while my son, on the other hand, if he spots even ONE TINY SPECK of green or red in his pasta (or similar dish), it becomes a battle to get him to eat.
Luckily, there are a few veggies he will eat, like beans and corn and he’ll even eat tomatoes and lettuce if it’s on a burger. To get other green veggies in him though, I have to hide them in recipes like in my meatloaf muffins, my secret ingredient chili mac or in a green smoothie. Green Smoothies are a great way to get additional fruits and vegetables into the diets of anyone who may not be eating enough vegetables. After all, who doesn’t love a smoothie? Smoothies are great for quick breakfast’s and even better as an afternoon snack.
I found a super easy way to make the most nutritious, vitamin-packed smoothie and want to share it with you today: a company called Frozen Garden! Frozen Garden has a great story behind them, and they have a fantastic assortment of nutritious and delicious ready-to-blend green smoothies.
I’ve tried almost all their flavors and while we definitely have our favorites, what I love about the Frozen Garden Green Smoothies is that each Green Smoothie starts with a base of dark leafy greens, adds in healthy omega-3 fats and other nutrient-dense superfoods and tops it off with a variety of fruit. There’s no added sugar or artificial sweeteners. The Frozen Garden Green Smoothies are sweetened with naturally sweet whole foods such as fruits and dates. They are also Non-GMO, Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Soy Free, Nut Free*, and Vegan; so they can fit into almost any diet! (*Jungle Breeze is not nut free.)
Check out all the different varieties available here.
When you are ready for a smoothie, all you have to do is grab a package from your freezer, open, add water or other liquid of choice to the fill line on the package, blend and enjoy!
If you live in the Chicago area, you can find Frozen Garden ready-to-blend green smoothies at more than 70 Chicago-area retailers including select Brookhaven Marketplace, Pete’s Fresh Market, and Sunset Foods. But for the rest of us, we can order online! (I love the ability to order these smoothies online, it’s especially handy since I already do most of my grocery shopping online anyway) The Frozen Garden Green smoothies will be delivered directly to your door, frozen and ready to blend.

Of course, the Frozen Garden Green Smoothies are delicious, blended as a smoothie (and are definitely my favorite to drink them.) I thought would get a bit creative for the kids after school snacks and make popsicles with one of the Jungle Breeze Smoothie packages. (and I love any excuse to use my new popsicle molds too!)
You’ll love this Green Smoothie Popsicle recipe. It’s super easy to put together, the popsicles freeze quickly, and best of all, the kids loved them! The popsicles taste like a sweet little treat, but they’re packed full of spinach, yogurt, and other nutritional goodness.
