** I received the mentioned product for free in order to facilitate this review. All opinions are 100% my own.

I love finding new brands that are trying to change the way we see food. Getting my picky eaters to eat veggies is such a battle. I have to bargain a single pea piece in exchange for a chocolate chip. At least they like their fruits. But thanks to Ruby’s Rockets now I can hide their daily serving of fruit and veggies into a popsicle. Woo hoo!!

Think of a frozen fruit and veggie smoothie all full of their goodness and you get Ruby’s Rockets.

 

Things we love about Rub’y Rockets:

    • Ruby’s Rockets are all natural which makes them super healthy!
    • Each pop has less than 35 calories per pop with less than 2 grams of sugar.
    • No Artificial Colors or Flavors
    • Dairy Free, GMO  Free, and Gluten Free

Plus each pop contains probiotics which offer immune and digestive support when included as part of a balanced diet and healthy lifestyle.

So not only are my boys getting their fruit and veggies ratios they are also helping their immune and digestive system every time they have a Ruby’s Rocket popsicle. Brilliant!

And, do you know who came up with this amaxing product? Ruby, the 8 year old daughter of  Broadway/TV/film actress Wendy Makkena.

 

Ruby’s Rockets

We got the opportunity of trying Ruby’s Rockets Pops and I just cannot share with you guys just how much I love them. Finding a product that is low on sugar, great tasting, and good for your health is not easy. Plus, add the fact that my boys love them, I just can’t boast enough about them!

Fruit and Veggie Popsicles for Kids

Ruby's Rockets - Rocket RedRocket Red – An all-natural blend of sweet potatoes, strawberries, carrots and beets that delivers a Fruit Punch flavor.

A. first tried the Rocket Red and he was undecided. At first he was really excited that he was eating a popsicle. Kids love popsicles!

He ate half and I ate the other half. I loved it!! I am not one to eat popsicles because I have sensitive teeth but I still ate this popsicle either way. The popsicle was sweet but i could still taste the beets. It was like an after taste, but it was not bad at all (and it is something because I hate beets). If your kid has never tasted beets I doubt s/he will even notice it.

This one was my favorite.

Ruby's Rockets - Galaxy GreenGalaxy Green – An all-natural blend of avocados, kiwis, spinach and apples with a heavenly tropical lime flavor.

This flavor was the least liked. Actually, A. threw the popsicle away. It was not because of the flavor, I think the taste was just fine because he took a few bites off it. But once he saw the popsicle he decided he was more than done with it.

Ruby's Rockets - Galaxy GreenHe saw the pieces of spinach and he was instantly thrown off. If it is a green veggie he is so not interested.

So, flavor was good. Looks, not so much. Maybe if the spinach was pureed and not visible he would have eaten the whole popsicle.

 

Ruby's Rockets - Orbit OrangeOrbit Orange – An all-natural blend of sweet potatoes, carrots, oranges and lemon with the Juicy Orange taste that kids love.

J. only showed interest on the Orbit Orange Popsicles. Hey, orange is way better than red and green together, right?! At least that is what he thinks. He loved…no. He LOVED the orange flavored popsicle so much he asked me for seconds! The fact that these pops are healthy I just couldn’t say no!

Taste wise? Have you ever made your own orange juice with both sour and sweet oranges? Yes? That is what this popsicle tastes like. But it still has sweet potatoes, carrots and lemon. It was delicious.

Conclusion

I truly recommend Ruby’s Rockets. If you have picky eaters who play with their veggies instead of actually eating them, Ruby’s Rockets are for you! They are healthy, natural, vegan, and gluten free!!

    I have never heard of these – they sounds fantastic! I love all the things that are not in them as well as all of the good things that are in them. Sad face, according to the store locator there aren’t any on the east coast. 🙁

    I love this. The flavors sound delicious and I love that they are so healthy! I wish they were located closer to me. Hopefully they will be super successful and expand to Virginia.

    Good point about the spinach pieces – even if they weren’t spinach, you don’t exactly expect pieces in a popsicle. The orange sounds wonderful.

    I kind of think this is genius! My son is SO picky about food so any chance I can sneak in some veggies, I gotta take!
