11 Apr Berry Popsicles
Every time I walk through the frozen section of the grocery store, I catch a glimpse of the Popsicles and quickly re-live a moment in my childhood. I use to love, love, love Popsicles. It could be simplest of them all, you know the ones, liquid filled in a clear plastic tube only to be frozen until ready to have the top cut off. Then there were those fun superhero ones, with multiple colors, flavors and shapes that looked like rockets most of the time. Oh, and then there was those push-pops! My mom didn’t buy those often but when she did, oh my goodness!
It must be a kid thing, because my kids love Popsicles too. We couldn’t really eat ice cream due to my son’s dairy (among other) allergies, so frozen fruit treats were the way to go. Occasionally, I’d let them indulge in some sugary ones, but most of the time, the ones made from real fruit juice filled my freezer. Have you seen how expensive those are though? I can understand why, 100% organic berries and natural sweeteners would be more pricey than fruit flavored sugar-water.
So, I started making my own, and I'm going to show how to make your own Popsicles, using only 4 ingredients. Of course you can always buy them, pre made, but making them at home will save you money, let you create your own flavor combinations and provide your family with a treat that is actually good for them.
