Are you totally sick of green smoothies? From a jar? Yeah, me too. That’s why I’m freezing my smoothies and eating them in pop form. Genius, right? Green tea, pineapple and mint all whizzed up for your pop pleasure.

I also recently made these Mango and Coconut Pops. You could call me pop-obsessed, but that’s OK, I like it. You’ll notice that those pops are not on erin made this. They are on FAT MUM SLIM. THE Fat Mum Slim. Seriously dying right now. Chantelle is lovely/generous/crazy enough to let me say hello over there each month. So bloody grateful.

    What a brilliant idea!! I’ve been trying to get into green smoothies more lately, but sometimes they seem like a bit of a faff to organise in time for breakfast (to be fair, sometimes a glass of water is too much faff first thing 😉 ) so I love the idea off being able to prepare some in advance and get the same nutritional benefit – thanks!
