My daughter is going though a phase where she won’t eat her greens… does that sound familiar parents? .. I mean come on…. you think you have this child who has that nailed down, then one day they decide … nah! I don’t like them anymore… and while they will still follow the rule of one bite of everything on your plate… you know they aren’t getting enough of the nutrients they need…. What’s a parent to do?
I have also been trying to get my daughter to consume more naturally probitoic foods. Foods that are fermented like Sauerkraut & Yogurt and pro-biotic drinks like Kombucha and Kefir… the yogurt is a not a problem… but fermented foods can have an odd taste for young taste buds… ok I admit it… adult taste buds too… so I had to put on my Sneaky Bacon Mum hat to solve this one!
So… as time is of the essence in my life.. I devised an AIP compliant recipe that combined leafy greens, yogurt and Kombucha… and I threw in some healthy fat in the form of Avocado…and these Green Monster Kombucha Popsicles were hatched!
Imagine my delight when the whole Popsicle was consumed without one single comment of “This tastes funny” and a request the following night for another Monster Popsicle for dessert… oh hell yeah you can
So where did I get those Popsicle I use various Popsicle molds but the following ones are my favorites.
For introducing new flavors to my daughter in the form of Popsicle I found these very cool Monster molds… I mean come on… psychologically everything taste better if its a monster LOL! Joie Monster Push Up Ice Pop Maker, Set of 4
Now for the child who is younger, I have been using these awesome molds so that you don’t get the t-shirt matching the popsicle 😉 The Friendly Yeti Ice Pop Molds BPA-Free Plastic With Drip Free Handle and Slurper Straw
