Mango and Banana Smoothie Pops

Healthy Mango and Banana Pops with Chia Seeds! Kids LOVE this!!

Here’s a FUN way to pack some extra fruit and nutrition into your children’s diet! These Mango and Banana Smoothie Pops are both easy to make and YUMMY to eat!!

Ingredients –

  • Flesh of one Mango (Frozen or Fresh)
  • 1 ripe Banana
  • 170ml of Yoghurt (we used Coconut flavoured but plain is fine)
  •  1/2 tablespoon of Chia Seeds*

Method –

Start by blitzing the Chia Seeds in your blender to make a fine powder, add the rest of the ingredients and blend. Pour into some Ice Pop Moulds and freeze. This recipe filled 4 pop moulds (around 2 cups).

*Chia Seeds can be found in your local healthfood store and are a great source of Omega 3, plus it’s packed full of protein and fibre! Some children don’t enjoy the grainy texture of Chia Seeds, you can soak them in the yoghurt overnight (refrigerated) prior to blending – this will give a much smoother consistency to the smoothie. Chia Seeds are also often used to replace egg in some recipes as seen here.
