Veggies in a popsicle?!

Really?!

I promise they aren’t as bad as they sound. While I am sure you think I have lost my mind, let me tell you that my kids gobbled these up and asked for more. They did!

Do you have a hard time getting your children to eat their vegetables?

For the most part, my kids are great about eating at least one bite of something they don’t like. Usually they do find that they like it. There are those vegetables though that are hard to get them to even eat one bite. Then there are those weeks when we are super busy. We find ourselves making poor food choices. It is then that our attitudes and how we feel reflects those poor choices.

In an effort to eat more veggies while enjoying a cool treat {since we were without air conditioning for a week during the heat wave in North Carolina} I added about one cup of mashed sweet potato to our favorite smoothie recipe and added more liquid to help with the consistency.

They were delicious!!

Are you ready to try them?
