Apple Pie Popsicles

Very yummy recipe for Apple Pie Popsicles

This past 4th of July we were able to spend time with family at the Byrd family camp. There was fishing, tubing, laughing and apples. There was a ton of Granny Smith apples just begging for us to pick them. So we did pick them and the first thing we did with them when we got home was to develop a recipe for Apple Pie Popsicles.  When Mr. Byrd and I got married 10 years ago I was introduced to what Louisianans (cajuns) like to call the "camp".  If you would have asked me in my 20's if I would like to go spend the weekend at the camp I would have thought you were crazy.

Mango Strawberry Popsicles

Mango Strawberry Popsicles

I love making popsicles.  You could say it's because it's easy and a guaranteed proclamation from my kids that I'm the best mom ever. However let's be honest - I love popsicles because I can't burn them. Then when you add in ingredients that I want to feed my kids such as these Mango Strawberry Popsicles, it just gets better.  Last year I spent hours trying to convince my kids to try the juice from our vegetable juicer and they wouldn't touch it. Then I tried to get them to try store bought vegetable juice thinking that they might be willing since it was found at their favorite … [Read more...]
