Let me start by saying that I LOVE coming up with creative ways to get my kids to eat veggies.
It’s like a diabolical plot to rule the world. Only, just my world. So, not super diabolical. Just a little diabolical.
One of my favorite ways to trick them into eating veggies is these Magical Hidden Veggie Rainbow Popsicles.
Magical Hidden Veggie Rainbow Popsicles Your Kids Will Beg You to Make
Basically, you just have to be smarter than your kids, if you really want to know the trick to getting them to eat veggies.
It’s like a game.
And they are just a few steps behind you on experience, so you basically just have to keep that in mind.
And then plan to win.
That confidence–that plan to win–that’s what, ultimately, gets you kid-with-broccoli-in-mouth.
Now, I’m not promising it always works out that way.
But what they don’t know, especially in this case, can’t EVER hurt them.
It’s freaking vegetables, after all.
Now, if you’ve never made popsicles for your kids before, you absolutely HAVE to get yourself a popsicle mold that holds plenty of juice.
Because, that’s the point, right?
To get the veggie juice IN the kiddo–and not just a few drops.
So, I pulled out my star pop mold–going old-school seemed to have the most juice, you know.
And, the kids like the star shape–something about sticking their tongues in the grooves.
I don’t ask. Or judge.
I just gleefully rub my hands together and cackle that I got them to eat vegetables without them knowing.
Now, if you’re digging this recipe, but you just need to get your popsicle mold ordered, go ahead and pin these Magical Hidden Veggie Rainbow Popsicles.
That way you can find them again when you’ve got the mold in hand.
Oh, and don’t forget to give the recipe a 5-star rating if you love it!
- 2 small kiwi
- 1/2 cup crushed pineapple
- 1/2 cup strawberries
- 1 small beet (bear, battlestar gallactica)
- 1/2 bunch of kale
- 1/2 cup carrot
- 1/4 cup grape juice
- 1/4 cup orange juice
- 1/4 cup celery
- In a blender blend/combine the following:
- Kiwi and kale
- Carrot and orange juice
- 1/2 beet and strawberries
- 1/2 beet and grape juice
- pineapple and celery
- Each mixture should be a soupy-paste mixture. If it's not, if it's too liquidy, it will still work, but you can always add a little more of the "dry" ingredient, if desired.
- Layer the juice/mix into the popsicle mold.
- Freeze for 4 hours.
