1. Frozen Monkey Treats

The best way to get your kids to eat healthy is to make "healthy" appealing. Sometimes a small compromise is the best way to make it appealing. Frozen monkey treats are really easy and delicious for both adults and children alike! Simply peel a banana, slip a Popsicle stick into one end and dip the other into some melted chocolate. To secure for freezing, cover a bread pan with aluminum foil and poke the Popsicle sticks into it. Freeze until firm and serve!
2. Fruity Smoothie

There are many different ways of doing these, so I'll let you research and find a recipe that suits your desires. For myself, however, I love the easy ones you can purchase in the frozen section of your local super market. Some call for the addition of milk and others call for juice. I find a fruit smoothie absolutely wonderful on a warm summer morning. They're great for breakfast on the patio while you listen to the birds sin the morning in.

Here is another item you can buy at your local store, but they're wonderful homemade. Grab you some fresh fruit and juices next time you're at the store and create your own. Orange juice with bits of oranges chopped up in it make a nice citrus choice, and strawberries chopped up in orange juice are great too! You can get as creative as you want, but once you've made your mixture, just pour into your Popsicle molds and freeze! These are healthy replacements to your everyday Popsicle.
