Homemade Frozen Fruit Pops

As the weather gets warmer the kids will want to reach for a frozen treat to cool down.  Unfortunately most store-bought ice pops are full of dyes, artificial flavors, added sugars, & other questionable ingredients.  It is quick & easy to make these frozen fruit pops at home.  All you need is a blender, some popsicle molds, or dixie cups & popsicle sticks!  These are so yummy the grown ups will be sneaking a treat as well.

You could use pretty much any combination of fruit that you like, but I will share what I put into this tasty concoction that you see my little man enjoying above.

8 oz. orange juice
4 oz. coconut water
2 cups fresh fruit (watermelon, cantaloupe, strawberries)
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I like Muscle Milk brand) or 1 scoop vanilla Shakeology

Pulse a few times in the blender until everything is combined.  Divide evenly into popsicle molds (this makes about 8 frozen fruit pops).  Place in freezer for at least 3 hours before enjoying.
