Super Sonic Smoothie Pops
1/2 milk (we use vanilla-flavored almond milk)
2 whole ripe bananas, peeled
12 oz. (by weight) frozen strawberries (or any frozen fruit)
Place all ingredients in a blender, in the order listed above. Blend on a low speed until well mixed, thickened, and no chunks of fruit remain. Then, increase blender to high speed and continue to mix on high for about a minute. A "vortex" (funnel) will form in the center of the blending mixture.
Fill popsicle containers with the smoothie mixture and place in the freezer until frozen. If you rather, you can just pour into a cup and enjoy immediately!
Tip: The frozen fruit acts as ice and thickens the smoothie, so don't substitute it for fresh fruit.
