Hello, hello! The kids are out of school, the temperatures are soaring, and it’s definitely the season for icy cold frozen treats. My kids love spending time in the pool, and when they’re done swimming, I usually let them enjoy some ice pops while they dry off. I used to buy boxes of ice pops every summer, but this year, we’ve been having tons of fun making our own, like these Strawberry Banana Smoothie Pops.

Most store-bought ice pops are relatively cheap, but they also contain artificial colors and all that not-so-good stuff. And, real fruit pops aren’t cheap! Since we’ve been making smoothies almost every day, I thought it would be fun to save some of the liquid and turn it into a batch of smoothie pops.

We’ve tried tons of different fruit combinations, but hands down, the kids prefer the classic taste of strawberries and bananas. I keep threatening wanting to add some spinach or other greens, but I haven’t tried that yet.



  • 2 ripe bananas, peeled
  • 1/2 pound of strawberries, washed and diced
  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 or 2 cups of ice


Add all ingredients to a blender, and puree until smooth.
Pour into ice pop molds, leaving a little space at the top for the liquid to expand. 
Freeze for at least 4 to 5 hours, or until completely solid.
Really, how easy is that?!

I found these cute little molds at Walmart, and they’re the perfect size for making ice pops. They even have a small tray on the end of the handle for catching drips!

After the molds were filled, I poured the left over liquid into small glasses so that we could enjoy our regular smoothies.

Later, the kids enjoyed these strawberry banana smoothie pops after some fun time in the pool, and since I had to try one too, I have to say that they were very refreshing and perfect for a hot day!

I found it was easier to remove the pops from the molds when we held them under slightly warm water for a little bit. Removing the strawberry banana pops after about four hours instead of the next day seemed to be easier, as well. But, that’s just my experience.

What kind of frozen treats are you loving this summer?

Have a super fun day!
