SUMMER IS HERE!!!
Okay...so maybe not quite yet. But today feels a lot like a summer day! And reaching the mid 90's tomorrow will certainly bring us back to those super hot days spent playing in the hose and running barefoot in the yard. With popsicles, of course. Because every kid knows the value of a good popsicle on a hot day, right? And honestly, every adult should too because truly - popsicles aren't just for children. I mean, have you ever heard of a Coconut Honeydew Margarita pop? How 'bout an Iced Coffee pop? A Watermelon Mojito Pop? Well, you get the idea. Popsicles are the perfect snack for all ages and can actually be a pretty healthy treat too! Just this past weekend my mother dropped by with a mini popsicle mold for us after I mentioned wanting to test out some recipes! (Thanks, Ma!) Without prior planning we used what we had and tried some simple orange juice pops which the kids had for breakfast Saturday morning, a sure hit! This morning we dropped in some mixed berries and fruit juice and as soon as these little monsters wake from their naps we'll be out in the yard to try them too!
Have you ever experimented with popsicles? Did I make you a believer and now you want to? Here's a link to 50 Popsicle Recipes for you to start with! Yes, that's right - 50!! Enjoy!
