Trying to keep cool and refreshed during the relentless summer heat?

One way we do this in our household is by keeping a fresh supply of homemade Popsicles in our freezer.  They are healthier than anything you can find at the grocery store, since it requires no added sugar (although a small drizzle of honey can be added if need be!) and it makes for a fun little activity when the kids are bored.



  1. Combine ingredients in food processor or blender.
  2. Blend until smooth.
  3. Pour into popsicle molds (don’t have molds? No problem! Fillsmall  plastic or paper cup, cover with foil, stick toothpick or popsicle stick through foil. I fill ice cube trays with this method as well for little hands in your family!).
  4. Freeze for atleast 5 hours (overnight is best).
  5. To release from molds, run under warm water briefly until popsicle loosens from mold.
  6. Enjoy!

**You can get really creative by adding any type of berry or fruit to the food processor.  The flavor possibilites are endless!
