What do you get when you combine fresh fruit and lemonade? These awesome popsicles of course!
By looking at the calendar it is officially summer, but if go by the temperature gauge it has already felt like summer for a few weeks. We’ve been cooling off by spending hours in the swimming pool, having water balloon fights and eating popsicles.
Lots of popsicles.
If you haven’t made your own popsicles before, it is probably one of the easiest things you can do. Those “layered” popsicles you see on the web can be intimidating to make; so if you want a recipe that you can “pour-and-go” this is the one!
The equipment doesn’t need to be fancy, and your kids will love being involved in dreaming up all the flavor possibilities. It’s a wholesome way to make a cool snack that both you, your kids and probably even the neighborhood kids are going to love this summer.
