Twisted Strawberry Banana Popsicles

Here in Vancouver we are in the midst of a heat wave. My Brazilian boyfriend suggests we get an air conditioner to beat the heat, but I'm thinking that might not be the most practical solution when living in Western Canada. A tastier and more economical solution is eating popsicles for every meal. Too much? Okay, not every meal. But at least you can feel good about eating these healthy popsicles at any time of day! Plus they look lovely.

Banana layer:
2 Bananas
2 handfuls of Spinach
3 tbs Vanilla Yogurt (approx.)
about 1/2 a cup of water (or as needed to blend)

Strawberry layer:
3 cups cut strawberries
1/2 cup Vanilla Yogurt
water as needed

1. Choose whichever layer you would like on the bottom first. Add all the ingredients for that layer into the blender and blend until smooth.
2. Pour the contents of the blender into your popsicle mold, up to about the half way mark.
3. Freeze the first layer with the popsicle stick in it.
*If you have trouble keeping the popsicle stick upright, wait for the first layer to freeze a little bit then try again.
4. Once frozen you can make the second layer in the blender, then pour it over the first layer in the mold. Now place back in the freezer.

Once fully frozen, eat and enjoy!

Tip: Give the layers a taste test after blending, if you'd like a sweeter popsicle blend in some honey!

Help me! How do you beat the heat?
