Cool Treat for Summer’s Heat
July 20, 2020 | Jody Gatewood
During the summer, I can often find my kids looking through our freezer to see what kind of frozen treat they can find. Usually they can find some sort of popsicles and, once in a while, some ice cream. They also like making their own popsicles. One of Paige’s favorite kind of popsicles to make are the Berry Banana Popsicles from Spend Smart. Eat Smart.
I like the recipe too because it is a simple, yet filling, snack for my kids. The only ingredients are strawberries, bananas, and yogurt. We like to chop the fruit up and mix in the yogurt before putting into the molds to freeze. You can also mix all the ingredients together in a blender until smooth before putting into the popsicle molds.
If your family doesn’t like strawberries or bananas, use different fruits such as blueberries, cherries, or raspberries. We also have a recipe for Apricot Pops.
Making the popsicles is a fun way to get kids involved in the kitchen. They can chop the fruit up with a butter knife or plastic knife and stir into the yogurt.
Share with us what kind of fruit you would use in your popsicles.
