Push up pops in neon pink strawberry and deep purple grape were a favorite from the Snack Shack at my middle school. For 75 cents you would get the summery popsicle-stained lips and a hit of corn syrup and food dye, all during lunch break.
These pops replicate the popsicle stain, sweet taste, and cool memories on a warm day without the unwanted ingredients. We add magnesium powder to these because so many of us are deficient, and the sour taste of the magnesium powder blends well with the sweet-tart berries. Magnesium can help calm children for afternoon rest time. Tart cherry is added to promote healthy sleep after a long day of playing in the sun.
Because the whole fruit is blended, air bubbles are incorporated into the mixture, allowing it to still be soft rather than icy-hard when frozen.
You will need
10 fresh strawberries
2 tablespoons Raspberry-Lemon Magnesium Powder (optional)
2 tablespoons raw honey
1 ripe banana, with spots
Combine all ingredients in a blender, pour into molds. Top with lids and freeze upright, or at least at a 45 degree angle to preventing spilling.
