Cool off with these delicious Winnie the Pooh Pops inspired by Disney’s #ChristopherRobin
Growing up, Winnie the Pooh was one of my favorite characters so to say I’m a little excited to see my pals from the Hundred Acre Wood back in a live action adventure would be an understatement. Disney’s CHRISTOPHER ROBIN is one movie I can’t wait to see this summer. While we wait for August 3rd to roll around, I’m getting creative in the kitchen with the kids making fun Pooh themed recipes like these Winnie the Pooh Pops or my yummy Winnie the Pooh Smoothie that I shared a few weeks ago.
Either one is a delicious way to celebrate the magic of Christoper Robin and help get the kids excited for the movie. After all food always tastes better when it’s Disney themed!
These Winnie the Pooh Pops are made with only fruit and some orange juice so there’s no added sugars or extras you don’t want the kids eating. Plus they’re super easy to make.
They’re perfect for these hot summer days that are finally starting to appear.
There’s nothing my kids enjoy more on a hot day than a refreshing ice pop but with so many additions in store bought brands that I don’t want my kids having these are an easy option to make at home.
These smoothie pops are made from the same recipe as the Winnie the Pooh Smoothie, and can be whipped up in mere minutes.
I used frozen fruit because I always have a freezer full for making smoothies but you can use fresh or frozen for this recipe.
Once the fruit is blended smooth, you’ll just spoon it into the ice pop molds in layers. Since it’s a smoothie and it’s thick, you don’t have to worry about the colors blending. Just spoon a layer of the pineapple mango in the mold, followed by a smaller layer of strawberry and then top it off with a little more pineapple mango.
Place the lid on, insert the sticks and place in freezer until frozen.
