3 easy smoothie recipes using frozen pops

Smoothies have replaced cereal as our go-to breakfast. They’re quick to make, nutritious, and the kids can enjoy them in the car. As a mom, I prefer to take a bit more time on my own smoothie creations and make sure that it’s full of fruits, veggies, protein and probiotics because it’s often hours until I get to have another meal. Couple that with a morning workout, and all the extra attention that I put into my smoothie is a must!

Recently, I’ve started replacing frozen fruit with Ruby Rocket’s frozen pops. They’re frozen, so the smoothie still has that nice thick texture, but they also contain both fruit AND veggies, and a ton of probiotics. In fact, at 500 million CFUs per pop, it gives you more probiotics per ounce than Greek yogurt. In terms of probiotics, two Ruby Rocket’s pops equals six ounces of yogurt, but without the dairy! So a vegan smoothie, or smoothie bowl, is totally doable.

Each Ruby Rocket’s box has six pops, so I can usually do about three smoothies and/or smoothie bowls with each box. This week, I picked up their Rock-It Red flavor that contains strawberries, beets, carrots, sweet potato and bananas. Like their other flavors, they’re also an excellent source of Vitamins A & C (30% for each bar) and they’re gluten-free.

It doesn’t matter which Ruby Rocket’s frozen pop you taste, when you bite into it, or use it in your smoothie, you won’t taste any of the vegetables or have an after taste. Ruby Rocket’s does a great job of keeping these frozen pops healthy and delicious.
