As the school year comes to and end and the days seem to get hotter we have turned to being big fans of healthy home-made popsicles. They are a great way to get the kids to cool down & to enjoy something not fully or artificial colors & sugars!
We have rounded up our favorite summer pop recipes but you can also find more Popsicle recipes on our Pinterest Board.
