Berry Banana Smoothie Pops

Hi guys! Since we all could use a little ray of sunshine right about now, I made these delicious Berry Banana Smoothie Pops that will transport you to a sunny beach😎😎 They’re delicious, refreshing and healthy, plus you only need four ingredients to make em! If you have a lot of frozen berries on hand, this is a great way to use them up. I’ve been loving frozen berries lately because you can incorporate them into so many things, and they’re delicious just warmed up and served with granola. I also used spinach and avocado in these pops, which add nutrients but aren’t detectable! What are you waiting for? Go make yourself some!

Berry Banana Smoothie Pops

Serves: Makes 7-8 pops

Total Time: 10 minutes to fill moulds, then freeze overnight

Ingredients:

  • 1 small ripe banana
  • About 1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen mixed berries
  • 1 packed cup of spinach
  • 1/2 a ripe avocado
  • 1/2 cup water

Directions:

  1. Blend all of the ingredients together in a blender. The smoothie should be pretty thick.
  2. Spoon the smoothie into popsicle moulds, making sure not to over fill them. Stick in the popsicle sticks and place in the freezer overnight to freeze.
  3. Run some warm water over the moulds to loosen up the popsicles before removing them from the moulds.
  4. Enjoy!

Hope you enjoy this recipe!

Fruit Compote

Let’s face it: mornings suck. So let me paint you a picture of how they can be less sucky: you wake up, leap out of bed because you know you’ll soon be enjoying a delicious breakfast, brush your teeth, make and enjoy said delicious breakfast, get ready for school and leave the house feeling satisfied and happy that you got to eat something awesome. This fruit compote can make all of that happen😍😍 It’s super easy to make and tastes absolutely amazing with oatmeal, yogurt, or even on toast. It’s also full of fruit and contains no added sugar, which makes it a great, healthy way to start your day. Now go ahead and get ready to slay your mornings, because this compote is pretty dang good.

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal

You know how I posted three recipes for Overnight Oatmeal a couple months back? Well, those are great to make ahead for rushed mornings, but if you have the time to make this Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal, I totally recommend it! In fifteen minutes you can have a bowl of creamy, chocolaty oats topped with seeds and of course, cherries. If you don’t have time to make this during weekdays, it’s a great breakfast to soothe your sweet tooth on the weekends. In short, this recipe hits the spot any day of the week! I used frozen cherries in this to top my oats, but if you don’t have some on hand, any fresh or frozen berry will do. Now let’s make some oatmeal!

Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal

Makes 1 Serving

Cook Time: 5-8 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium sized banana
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 1 tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup frozen cherries (or berries of your choice)
  • Your favourite toppings (nuts and seeds, nut and seed butters, dried fruit, etc.)

Directions:

  1. Mash half of the banana in a small pot. Add in the oats, cocoa, and water, and stir until combined.
  2. Place the pot over medium-high heat and bring the oat mixture to a boil.
  3. Turn the heat down to medium-low and simmer uncovered for 5-8 minutes, until desired thickness is reached. Make sure to stir the oats every couple minutes or so to avoid them sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  4. Remove the pot from the heat and pour its contents into a bowl. Top with the frozen cherries and other toppings of your choice. I like to slice the other half of the banana and use it to top the oats.
  5. Enjoy!

This is a healthy and delicious breakfast, and it definitely fills you up and gets you through your day! I hope that you like it and find it easy to make. Thanks for reading!

Very Berry Frozen Yogurt

Hey peoples! Happy Wednesday! We’re halfway through the week-you can do it! I’m always looking for healthy treats, and I found this Frozen Yogurt on Pinterest a little while ago. There’s no added sugar or other unwanted additives with names so long that you can’t pronounce ( I would name a few but I don’t think that I can spell any of them right), and also tastes delicious! Thanks to Gimme Delicious at gimmedelicious.com for this recipe!

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups frozen berries
  • 1/2 cup Vanilla or Plain Greek Yogurt
  • 1-2 Tablespoons of Honey
  • Dash of vanilla
  • A bit of lemon juice (optional)

Directions:

  1. Put all ingredients into a blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Eat is straight from the blender, or put it in the freezer for a bit for a harder alternative.
  4. That’s it!

So simple and so delicious! I haven’t tried it with different frozen fruits, but I’m sure it would work just as well. Let me know if you’ve tried any!
