Strawberry Banana Popsicles

Estella from The Weekly Bite recently did a post on making popsicles with pureed watermelon and I was inspired to make my own strawberry banana version. ( http://weeklybite.com/watermelon-popsicles/) What a great idea! This quick, easy and healthy dessert can be whipped up in less than 5 minutes. Freeze, then enjoy on a hot summer afternoon.





What You Need:

½ ripe banana
1 cup strawberries
½ cup filtered water or juice of your choice
Optional: 1 Tbs sweetener of your choice



What To Do:

Combine all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth.







Divide liquid into popsicle tray and freeze.









Yields about 1 1/3 cup - 4 pops


Bon App├ętit!
