Green popsicles

O *loves* popsicles. She is happy to eat them as soon as she’s rolled out of bed in the morning, even in the dead of winter when it’s puking snow outside. If we ever needed to sneak some medicine into her, popsicles would be my delivery method of choice.

These popsicles are great, and we usually try to have some in the freezer—they can come in quite handy when you have a hungry, cranky child. When I took the photo below, we were out of spinach. They are a better colour with spinach in the mix—a darker, less snotty green!
