Pina Colada Almond Smoothies and Popsicles

We often use leftover fruit for smoothies. My favorite is a banana with pineapple and coconut smoothie that reminds me of a pina colada. My kids’ favorite is a berry smoothie with cherries. But really we use whatever fruit and juice we have around. I like to add coconut milk to make it creamy and with some nut butter it becomes a protein rich meal. It is hard to predict how much everyone will drink so we often have extra. I freeze the extra smoothie in popsicle molds for the kids to have later. They always seem more excited when I offer them a popsicle than when I offer them fruit.
