As a kid in summer there is nothing better than taking a break from playing outside and cooling down with a sticky sweet ice pop. As I write, the memories of red and blue stained lips become so vivid…and happy. There are many names for this delicious frozen treat: ice pops, popsicles, freezer pop, ice lolly….the list goes on. Whatever you prefer to call them, know that they are easy to whip up at home with the kids at even the youngest of ages. In fact, with the kids out of school making popsicles is a great summer activity that also educates about food choices, taste and sugar content. It’s a great opportunity to get those creative juices flowing and test out different ingredients and textures.
I like to believe that making popsicles “ice pops” is the perfect opportunity to EAT THE RAINBOW….
That’s right, don’t be afraid to use veggies as ice pop ingredients. Don’t be afraid to go wild with fruits and zest. Don’t be afraid to finally try that coconut milk or water that you see people drinking.
