With lots of warm weather in the forecast, I found a COOL way to incorporate more produce into my kiddos’ day through fun Freezer Pops!
The following Pistachio and Raspberry Freezer Pops are part of a sponsored post on behalf of the Produce for Kids campaign with Publix. Opinions expressed are that of my own.
Now what truly inspired me to create this yummy combination was an excellent initiative being championed by multiple organizations. Produce for Kids and Publix have teamed up again to raise funds to help feed local families through Feeding America!
Look for special signage at your local Publix now through June 28th because your purchases truly can make a difference!
Sponsors supporting this program include: Avocados from Mexico – Avocados, Crunch Pak® – Sliced Apples, Driscoll’s® – Raspberries, Del Monte Foods® – Fruit Naturals® Cups, Eat Smart® – Fresh Cut Vegetables & Salads, Fresh Express® – Packaged Salads, RealSweet® – Vidalia® Onions, Little Bear Brand, Wonderful® – Pistachios, and Marie’s® – Salad Dressings.
To date, this partnership has donated over 4 million meals to children and families in need.
By adding more nutritious fruits and vegetables from these brands to grocery carts, Publix shoppers will help to feed local families. For additional details visit ProduceForKids.com/Publix.
Want to try out my new freezer pop recipe? See how I incorporated sponsors products into my recipe below!
Pistachio and Raspberry Freezer Pops
1/2 Cup of Shelled No Salt Wonderful® Pistachios
1/2 Cup of Driscoll’s® Raspberries (around 10-12)
3/4 Cup of Lowfat Vanilla Yogurt
1/2 Cup of Vanilla Almond Milk
6 Slot Freezer Pop Container
First remove the shells from the Pistachios and place them into a nut grinder.
Use the coarse option to yield around a 1/3 of a cup, then set this aside.
Next add the Raspberries, Lowfat Vanilla Yogurt, and Vanilla Almond Milk to a blender and puree completely.
Then stir the Pistachios in this mixture and pour the combination into the Freezer Pop Container.
Place this into the freezer for 3 or more hours until set, and then serve.
My kids love these Pistachio and Raspberry Freezer Pops, and I love that this recipe is so easy and ends up with such a pretty color.
Not only is this a cool treat for the summer, but it is a snack or dessert that I can feel really good about serving my kiddos.
