How is your summer going? Is it hot where you are? In Texas, we have already seen temperatures hovering around the upper 90s and even in the 100s. When it is that hot outside, we tend to stay indoors or head to the swimming pool to cool off.
During the summer, every time we go to the store, my kids always ask for ice pops. Ice pops are basically sugar water and aren’t healthy at all. Each ice pop contains 50 calories and 13 grams of sugar. My kids can easily consume several ice pops in a day. I am guilty of reaching for them too. They are just so tempting when it is hot outside.
Instead of indulging in those icky sugar bomb popsicles, try these healthy homemade popsicles this summer. We came up with a huge variety of healthy popsicles so that there is a popsicle for every palette.
Note: There are a few recipes that might have to be modified in order to make them a healthier choice than the posted recipe.
