According to my daughter, we are halfway through summer vacation. I felt that slight feeling of panic that I haven’t felt since I was closer to her age, knowing that in just a few weeks, flip flops will be traded for closed toe shoes, backpacks unearthed from the closet, and lazy summer mornings will become a little more hectic.

Now that we’re in the depths of summer, we’ve fallen into a new routine, one that revolves, funny enough, around having no routine. The kids wake up when they want to wake up, and while they’re not the type of kids to sleep in until noon, the mornings are definitely quieter for a touch longer.

For me, that means that I can squeeze in a workout while they dream their last dreams, and by the time I’m ready for my post workout smoothie, they are wandering into the kitchen at the same time, ready for their breakfast smoothie.

My daughter and I are partial to our mango spinach green smoothies, while my son stays loyal to his strawberry banana smoothie. But I’ve been making extra to freeze into popsicles for those it’s-so-hot-what-can-I-have-for-a-snack moments.

And since we’ve been flirting with 100 degree days here and there, sometimes, I just want a popsicle for breakfast!

These Green Smoothie Popsicles are creamy and sweet, and a delicious and wholesome treat for any time of day. Almond milk and Greek yogurt is a great source of protein and gives it extra creaminess, and the sweetness of the ripe bananas, mangoes and healthy green spinach, with a touch of honey makes it a tropical treat. I add hemp seeds for a superfood punch and that nutty taste I love.

With a freezer full of smoothie popsicles, I can rest easy. We still have 33 more days before the kids head off to school. 33 more days of summer. And 33 more days of popsicles.
