Word of the day: Summer Nights
The last few weeks here in Central Florida has been hot. Actually hot is not the best word more like boiling! Between the heat index and humidity being so high, our summer weather is definitely here.
Finding ways to keep the kids cooled off and still be able to enjoy the outdoors can be challenging. Just recently, I thought of a recipe that I wanted to try out and I am so glad that I did.
These Frozen Fruit Pops were a hit. They are cold, refreshing and a perfect way to quench your thirst. These pops will keep you hydrated and healthy all at same time.
My children love Frozen Fruit Pops. I can’t say I blame them. One of the reasons why I love making these summer pops is to keep my children from junk foods. Making fruit pops is much healthier plus you can make them simple or go crazy with your favorite fruits and snacks. That choice is yours.
This time around, my daughter selected two of her favorite fresh fruits and her favorite brand of orange juice.
She loves bananas and strawberries, so she was tickled and couldn’t wait to make these.
The popsicle holders were actually found at the Dollar Store which is a great find since I really love how these have the sip straw attached and can be reused.
First, I started chopping up the fruits into small pieces so they are easier to place inside of the popsicle holders. So simple! Begin placing the fresh fruit inside then add your favorite juice. Cover with the top and freeze for 5 hours or as desired.
– And Presto!
You have yourself a cold tasty summer treat that they whole family will love.
Trust me, they will thank you for it.
