I can take absolutely no credit for this recipe. None. Zilch. The real mastermind is none other than my cooks-twice-a-year husband. And while he may not be a maestro in the kitchen, hubby is still the guy that makes my heart go pitter patter — especially when he comes up with ideas like these.

Three years ago, I posted a recipe on weelicious called Peas in a Pop. While I’ll never win a James Beard Award for it — it’s literally just frozen peas on a stick — it is, no joke, one of the most popular recipes I’ve ever put up on weelicious and a total hit with my kids and their friends. It’s a fun way for kids to eat their greens and even parents of children who don’t like peas have told me their little ones love these pops.

In spite of the overwhelming popularity of Peas in a Pop among weelicious moms, hubby was convinced there was a way to make them taste even better (and in the process earn a way cooler name). For the past year he has harped on me non-stop to turn his idea for Pea Wee Kiwi Pops into a reality. That’s over 365 days of me having to listen to him say almost daily_ “where are you at with Pea Wee Kiwi?” Finally, I made them, if only to get him off my back.

Well I only wish I had listened to hubby sooner. These pops are awesome. And if the name itself isn’t cute enough, just check out the picture above. These bright green, speckled ice pops are a treat for both the eye and tummy, insanely mouthwatering, and filled with nothing but nourishing ingredients — the perfect snack to enjoy on a warm summer afternoon.

I can’t wait to see what hubby comes up with next. I just may be able to retire!

    1. Awesome idea! Thank you! We didn’t have any juice on hand, so I just blended the kiwi with some frozen pineapple and threw in a big handful of fresh baby spinach. (I always put spinach in our smoothies. It changes the color, but doesn’t really affect the taste.) My 5 year old and 20 month old gobbled them up!

    2. […] all else fails, make popsicles. You may not like the sound of a spinach puree pop, but your kids … they’re a different […]
