Pumpkin Popsicles

These Pumpkin Pie Protein Popsicles are perfect for picky toddlers and even make a great post workout treat for adults!

Picky toddlers…UGH.  Unfortunately for me, I have one.

I struggle the most with getting my two year old to eat vegetables and proteins on a daily basis. Seriously though, I swear my kid could just survive on fruit and carbs if I let him. Stick a piece of chicken or broccoli on his plate though, and he wants nothing to do with it. I have tried a variety of different tricks to try to get him to eat more veggies, and recently I started using popsicles. I started with making smoothies for Bennett, but some days he will drink them and others days he won’t. I discovered that if I give him a popsicle though, he will almost always eat it.

This is when I decided to make a pumpkin pie protein popsicle! Since we are going into the fall season and everything seems to be pumpkin flavored everywhere I look (I’m not complaining!) I decided to create a pumpkin flavored pop to get myself into the seasonal mood! (Its also still in the 80’s here in Georgia, so popsicles are still a great way to cool off right now!)
