My kids love popsicles. It might have to do with the sweltering heat of Houston or the fact that they consider them to be on the same playing field as ice cream but they will beg and do all kinds of fancy tricks to get a popsicle. However I don’t like keeping store bought popsicles in the freezer because a lot of the time they have the red food dye that one of my children does not handle well. So how do you make very easy popsicles and keep them healthy at the same time?
Two years ago I shared this recipe for Summer Breeze Popsicles using SanPelligrino and strawberries but you’re going to kick yourself for not thinking of this method sooner. You don’t even need a recipe for popsicles.
All you need are popsicle molds and a bottled fruit or vegetable smoothie, we like Bolthouse Farms brand.
The great thing is that there’s so many flavors now and you can even mix and match them. You can even mix the vegetable juices in with the fruit smoothies for an added punch. It’s mom’s little tricks that help our kids get the nutrients they need each day.
Do you have a favorite go to homemade popsicle recipe that you love? Hey at least it’s one recipe that you can’t burn.
It’s almost summer time! If you want to follow my family through the lovely heat of Houston (that’s sarcasm folks) then please follow along on Instagram!
