Green Smoothie Popsicles in Zip-Top Molds

Last week on Instagram I shared the smoothie popsicles we made as a fundraiser for my daughter’s gymnastics program. I’ve never been a fan of the chocolate bar fundraisers, so I decided to create my own healthy fundraiser and see what happens. Well, it was super simple to do and a lot of people from the SGS community were asking how to do it, so I put together a step-by-step tutorial here. I wanted to put this together sooner, but all of the frozen popsicles that we made were lost during Hurricane Irma as our power was out all of last week. Everything in the fridge and freezer had to be tossed, but thankfully I have an amazing husband who cleaned everything out. And food is replaceable— we are SO thankful that’s all we lost. Hansard Farm survived Irma!

Now that I’ve had a chance recover from the storm— I made a fresh batch of smoothie popsicles to try this fundraiser thing again. I wanted to share how I did it so you can make them too.

How to make Green Smoothie Popsicles:


These rawkstar pops are made with an ordinary green smoothie recipe. The only extra goods you’ll need are a silicone funnel (or any funnel, really) and resealable bags in the shape of long, skinny popsicles.

I found a product on Amazon that bundles both the funnel and the zip-top popsicle mold bags (BPA-free!) in packs of 125 for $10. Seriously, it’s a steal. I highly recommend them, but there are other versions out there in case they sell out. They remind me of OtterPops from when I was a kid (and that makes me happy).


Choose your favorite green smoothie recipe, and blend it like normal. I decided to go with Beginner’s Luck since it’s a community favorite and my personal go-to recipe. When I do green smoothies samples in schools, kids always love this recipe too. So it’s a classic tried and true winner. Since these pops are going to aspiring gymnasts, I want to make sure I give them a winner.


I used a small funnel to help pour into the popsicle mold bags. You prob could pour directly from the blender, just focus on pouring slowly. If you pour too fast, there’s a good chance that the bag will overflow and you’ll have a mess on your hands (literally). Our signature green smoothie recipes (which make around 32 ounces + serve 2) fill around 10 popsicle mold bags IF there are no casualties.


After the bags are filled, stick them in the freezer for an hour or two (or until frozen) and enjoy! Pack them in your kids lunches, eat them as a snack, take them on road trips… it’s up to you. These rawkstar pops will take you back to your childhood! If you’d like to sell these for a fundraiser, you can download this Fundraiser Flyer (PDF). I made it to help answer any questions from people buying the pops… and also to make it more legit and exciting.

    How long do the smoothies last in the freezer?

  2. Sarah Schmidt says:

    I’m curious how you did this as a fundraiser. Was it like a bake sale type set-up?

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Sarah,

      It was actually at a basketball game? Have you ever seen students selling chocolate bars at games? In place of chocolate, we went around with a cooler and our green smoothie pops! They sold great + were a huge hit! 🙂

    Esse smoothie quando congelado alimenta e refresca nesse verão escaldante, nunca pensei nessa ideia mas vendo essa receita me inspirei para fazer de vários outros sabores, acredito que até as minhas crianças que não tomam smoothie de jeito nenhum vão começar a comer. Adorei!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Vitoria,

      YAY! So excited that these pops can inspire even little ones to give green smoothies a go!

  4. Alicia says:

    I have tried this before but the smoothie filling turns an unappetizing brown quickly. How did you get yours so vibrant? Thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Alicia,

      Oh no! To help preserve all their nutrients, as well as, that bright green color try adding a small amount of lemon juice to your smoothie!

  5. Fabian Auer says:

    This is fantastic. I’ve just recently had a change of life and I’ve noticed that good nutrition is a part of a happy healthy life style. This makes me smile. I hope this reaches school across the world.

  6. Anne says:

    These bags were no longer available on amazon.

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Anne,

      Oh no! There are plenty of other options on Amazon, Jen liked these specifically for the way the sealed + the included funnel. But don’t let this one variety stop you from picking up another kind!

    I loved it, thank you for sharing

  8. Beth says:

    I think I like this idea better than popsicles.

  9. Nicola says:

    I think this just might be my favourite way of having smoothies and I haven’t even tried it yet! Thank you 🙂

  10. Betty says:

    I had no idea these baggies even existed! Got my order in and can’t wait to prepare them. There are many times I don’t want a full smoothie so these grab and go will be just the thing to have instead. Thank you for this fantastic idea and all the great smoothie recipes!

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      Hi Betty,

      You’re definitely right! These are a great way to save + enjoy any leftover smoothies!

  11. Kathy says:

    What a fun idea! I will save this and try to get around to creating these – I like this idea! Thank you for sharing

    • SGS Rawkstar Amanda says:

      YAY! We loved making these, and hope you will too! Reach back out + let me know how you enjoyed them!
