It’s warming up out there and that means it is time for fresh fruit and cool treats. My family loves it when I pull out my ice cream maker or popsicle molds because they know something yummy is going to be made. Homemade popsicles are becoming a fast favorite around our house. The fact that they are cheaper than store bought popsicles as well as I know what exactly are in them make them winners for me. For my kids, they think they taste better. I’m not one to disagree. They are really good.
The latest popsicle to go through taste testing in my house has been blueberry yogurt popsicles. As expected they became a quick favorite. What is not to like about blueberries and yogurt? These popsicles are made with greek yogurt so in addition to being full of antioxidants from the blueberries they have protein too.That protein is going to help you feel full longer in addition to a variety of other health benefits. With four growing kids that are always hungry I can really appreciate that!
So what do you think? Are you ready to make some popsicles? I promise they are super easy to make and even better to eat. Popsicle molds can be easily found in the summer for cheap. I want to say I picked up mine from the Dollar Store but i’ve even seen them in the dollar spot at Target in the past. If you don’t have a popsicle mold you can still make these treats too! All you need are small disposable cups and plastic spoons or popsicle sticks. Your treats may not have the traditional popsicle shape but they will be just as good. Try them for yourself and let me know what you think!
