Green smoothies on ice

Back in February, I wrote about our summer experiment with “tea” made into ice blocks/icy poles/popsicles. Summer is again approaching, and with the unseasonably hot spring, the boys wanted to make more. So they did.

During the past few months, we’ve also been experimenting with green smoothies. Even Boy Two (the avoider of all Green Things at all costs) decided that green smoothies were pretty cool. Anyway, a couple of weeks ago they were on a roll. They had made their tea ice blocks, and Boy One suggested we make some green smoothie ones. Upon a quick web search I discovered that we were not the first to try this (shocker, I know; we’re so original! haha) but it was still his own original idea at the time.

Best thing, they were a hit - and very easy to make, since we simply made a batch of smoothie, poured some of it into moulds and drank the rest. I don’t know if it really made too much difference, but if we want the smoothie to be fairly runny, I make it thicker at first, pour into the moulds, then add water to the remainder and give it another quick blend.

I’m looking forward to experimenting with more flavours to keep it interesting through the summer.
