Bananaberry Freeze

Need a quick, cool snack or a tasty way to get some fruit in the kiddos?  This ought to do it!

Try these variations.

  • Freeze mixture in popsicle molds.
  • Try a variety of frozen fruit.
  • Orange juice gives it a sweet/tart twang.
  • Add more juice for a smoothie consistency.
  • For a special treat, substitute juice for a can of lemon-lime soda.

Anything cold and fruity goes over well at my house, so we often use whatever fruit we have on hand for this treat, almost always starting with some red-taped bananas.  It’s all good, so have fun playing around with different combinations!

What’s your favorite healthy summer treat?

  1. NewlyWed Wife says:

    2 cups almond milk
    About 80-10 frozen strawberries
    A little sweetener (we like splenda)

    Blend away! It’s like a strawberry milkshake!

  2. Recently I made your strawberry lime slushies and I added a mango to it. Upped the vitamin and mineral content with a fruit that we normally don’t eat and everyone loved it. So refreshing and good for you. Thanks!

  3. We do something very similar, instead of juice we use yogurt, then freeze as popsicles. Delicious! It’s almost sad that my daughter considers this ice cream lol (before it’s made into pops)

  4. Oh, yum, yum, yum!! I am going to surprise the kids with this next week. I never make smoothies or anything like that. They will love it!

    • Oh, I think you’ll have a new favorite at your house! And truly, any combination of fruit/yogurt/milk/juice works just great. I like them cold and thick, so frozen fruit works well for us. Have fun with it!

  5. That’s almost exactly how I make smoothies 🙂 I like yogurt in them, but not everyone does. And I also just tried freezing watermelon pieces in ice cube trays and popped a few of those in today–it was delicious! Of course, blueberries, peaches, or anything else frozen is yummy too 🙂

  6. We do a lot of smoothies with whatever fruit we have on hand (usually berries & bananas – fresh or from the freezer) and 3-4 big handfuls of spinach with enough O.J. or water to be able to blend it all. My kids do well with these and I’m happy they get some veggies along with the fruits.

    • Yes! I like those, also, but they definitely have to be “spoonable” for me. I like that better than the slurpy straw version. (I’m weird like that. 😉 )

    Mmmm, these look so good, and perfect for a hot day!

  8. These were such a fun way to celebrate our last day of school today! Made them with seltzer so they’d be fizzy and fun, but it kept me from serving the kids soda for breakfast. 😉

  9. Just made this with bananas, strawberries, and a raspberry lemonade premixed drink. Excellent! My kids say it tastes like the berry smoothies from McDonalds. Thanks!
