What’s better than a smoothie? A smoothie on a stick, of course. Here we’ve blended up strawberries, blueberries, grape juice, and (shhhhhh!) kale to make a deep purple and very fruity treat. In the test kitchen, so many spoonfuls were stolen from the blender, we feared there wouldn’t be enough left to make popsicles. It’s a good thing we stopped ourselves because it tastes even better frozen — like a super scrumptious sorbet.
At home, our kids gobbled them up and rejoiced in their purple lips, never guessing that they’d just eaten leafy greens. And we high-fived ourselves because, hey, it looks gorgeous, it tastes like dessert, and it’s pretty darn healthy — no added sugar and plenty of antioxidants. Best summer snack ever!
