Rainbow Ice Pops
These ice pops are not only very cute, they’re also very good for you. The chia seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids, protein, iron and fiber, which helps you feel full. Chia seeds are a good replacement for milk in your diet as they are rich in calcium and boron, which improves calcium absorption in the body. Thanks to the fresh fruit they contain, these ice pops are full of vitamin C. They’ll be a big hit at any summer party.

4 ice pops
3 months in the freezer
1 ½ tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp almond milk
1 small mango
Puree the strawberries in a blender. Transfer the mixture to a small bowl, add a half tablespoon of chia seeds and stir well. Pour the strawberry mixture into the popsicle forms until each is about a third of the way full. Freeze for four hours. Do the same with the bananas, but this time in addition to the half tablespoon of chia seeds, add the almond milk as well. Repeat with the mango, adding a half a tablespoon of chia seeds. Once you reach the last layer, make sure you let the ice pops thaw for about 15 minutes; otherwise you won’t be able to insert the popsicle sticks. Short on time? Blend all the ingredients until creamy, pour the mixture into the forms et voilà: they’ll still look great!
