Love the popsicle ideas! My 3 year old is so fussy and I’m hoping this will help me get something healthy into him by changing up the format. And it’s an excuse to use the dinosaur popsicle molds for myself too!

I have just discovered mango lassis--basically mango yogurt smoothies with spices. I do it with frozen mangos because it's easier, greek yogurt, water, and I sweeten with a little honey or agave and put in liberal amount of cardamom. The perfect breakfast for me!
