Secret Recipe Club

This month for the Secret Recipe Club, I was given This Mama Cooks (On a Diet!) as my assigned site. If you’re new or have forgotten about Secret Recipe Club in the midst of all the reading around here, it’s a “club” where bloggers are each assigned another blog from which to make a recipe.

This Mama Cooks was started in 2004, which makes it ancient in blog world! Anne-Marie is a professional blogger and social-media professional, also working for giants like Mom Central and CafeMom.

I decided to take inspiration from her recipes for popsicles. She’s made Orange-Coconut Popsicles (YUM.) and Green Apple and Flaxseed Popsicles, among several others. I sort of adapted the green apple popsicles to accommodate what I had in the fridge and cabinets, as well as the fact that my daughter won’t eat whole fruit except peel-less apple slices and bananas.

I found that she will HAPPILY suck down a popsicle that is made entirely of fruit and fruit juice, even if she won’t eat those fruits by themselves. So I think I’ll be making a whole lot more popsicles in the future. I didn’t sweeten these at all, and they are slightly tart, so you could add a little honey, sugar, or other sweetener if you so desire.

Loving our monster popsicle molds! They make smaller popsicles for little hands.

Healthy Strawberry Popsicles

Yield: 4-6 popsicles, depending on size of molds

Ingredients

Instructions

Add all to blender, blend until very smooth. Add more juice or water if mixture is too thick to pour.

Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.

To get out of molds once frozen, you can run them under hot water or let sit at room temperature for 5-10 minutes.

Enjoy!

Since I don’t really want to write another, separate post for my 31 days series and I make the rules around here, I thought I’d talk about cookbooks briefly. They are books. Right?

Here are some of my favorite cookbooks:
Rachael Ray 365
Betty Crocker Cookbook (although I prefer the 70s version!)
The Pioneer Woman Cooks
Barefoot Contessa at Home

Let’s be real, though? At least ninety percent of the recipes I make come from the Internet; many I find on Pinterest.

Do you still use cookbooks, or do you just glean from the Internet?

  1. How exciting, I love the ease of this recipe. Much healthier than store bought! Perfect SRC choice!  I love your blog, I am your newest Facebook Fan!  

    If you haven't seen my Low Calorie Greek Baked Eggs yet, I would love for you to check out my SRC post.

  2. Those popsicle molds are fabulous. Maybe I should get some now and hope for grandchildren…

    You forced me to open a pinterest account with the gluten free shepherd's pie recipe. It's all your fault.
