Tis the season for all things spring. Days are gorgeous and flowers are blooming. It’s also getting warm enough for some cold treats, at least in southern California anyway. This hidden veggie strawberry bunny popsicles recipe is a fun and cute way to get vegetables in.
How do I get my kids to eat vegetables? That’s the number one question I get as a kids’ food blogger. Sometimes I even get asked about how to get veggies into husband’s meals! Since I know some of you have children who won’t eat anything green. I created this recipe. Give these strawberry bunny popsicles a try. There are no green veggies in sight, but not to worry it’s still packed with cauliflower! That said, I’m huge on getting kids to eat vegetables that are not hidden also, so I serve whatever vegetable I’m hiding along with their meal.
Yes, you heard me right. I put frozen cauliflower in it! The fiber rich vegetable makes smoothies creamy and gives this cold delight an extra boost in nutrition. Best of all, the fruits in it overpower the cauliflower’s flavor, so you can’t taste it. I’ve also made this dairy free, with a fantastic creamer I recently discovered.
If you prefer to serve it as smoothie you can, although I would probably do half almond milk half creamer. You can use regular popsicle molds or use this bunny popsicle mold. If you want to freeze three at a time you can use these bunny molds, it’ slightly different but close!
Furthermore, if you desire a much sweeter popsicle, you can add a pitted date or more honey and blend it in. You can also make it vegan by using maple syrup.
Note: When first blended it is much sweeter to taste than when frozen, so you might want to overcompensate.
