Like Frozen Skittles, Without Skittles

Everyone loves popsicles, especially kids. They'll probably want them more as the summer days arrive. So the question, how to give the kids the popsicles they love, while keeping them healthy?  Siri Daly, who's the food contributor for NBC's Today Show and the author of the new cookbook Siriously Delicious, came by Tonia's Kitchen to talk about her recipe for Rainbow Popsicles.  Each color is a fruit or vegetable. Case in point, red are strawberries, blue are blueberries and green is spinach. To keep the colors solid, Siri told Tonia to layer thicker smoothie batters like strawberries, on top of thinner ones.  That way the colors should hold.  Note, you will need popsicle molds to make these delicious treats!
