Popsicles are an all-time favorite summer treat for kids of all ages. For health-conscious moms they’re also a great way to get kids to eat (or slurp!) their five a day. And although popsicles usually tend to be fruit flavored you can actually make some fantastic tasting veggie varieties.
Carrot, sweet potato and strawberry popsicles
#1 – Place the sweet potato (with skin on) in a pot of boiling water and boil for 15 to 20 minutes (or until tender).
#2 – Remove sweet potato from water and run under cold water to cool. Remove the skin and place sweet potato in bowl. Set aside.
#3 – Peel the carrot then take the strawberries and chop them both into little pieces. Boil for about 15 minutes or until tender. Drain and add carrot and strawberry pieces to sweet potato. Reserve the liquid from carrot and strawberry boil.
#4 – Place all the ingredients plus half a cup of reserved liquid into food processor and whiz until smooth. If the mixture is not sweet enough then add a tablespoon of honey to sweeten to taste.
#5 – Pour the liquid veggie and fruit into popsicle moulds and freeze. Enjoy!
