A Summertime Treat

Leave a comment

It is summertime here and it is pretty obvious with the heat and the ginormous mosquitos. To help us get through the day, we love to have a nice cold popsicle. Recently I came across a simple, quick and healthy recipe from Whole Foods that the kids love. They love them so much that they will eat all six in one sitting. And it would probably be okay if they did eat them all as the popsicles only have three healthy ingredients. Like smoothies you can also easily add some greens like avocados and the kids would never know.

Ingredients
1 cup of plain greek yogurt
1 cup of fresh fruit (we used raspberries and strawberries)
1 tablespoon of honey

Directions 
Add all ingredients to a food processor or blender. Then pour into your popsicle molds. (We use molds we found from Ikea, but you can find them at any store and they are fairly inexpensive.) Place them in the freezer for at least 3 hours and then they are ready to eat.

There are thousands of popsicle recipes out there, but these have definitely been a favorite for the kids. I hope you and your family enjoy this sweet treat as you try to cool off this summer.  Do you have a favorite popsicle recipe you make during the summer? I would love to know because we are always ready to try something new. Cheers to summertime!
