Summer time treats for all

Popsicles are a great way to cool off in the summer but most are packed full of simple sugar that our kids don’t need. Every food and drink that we offer our children should be as nutrition packed as possible. This summer, try making popsicles with your kids that will be fun and nourishing for them! The kid in you might want to try some too! Just pop fruit, veggies, yogurt, etc. in the blender, then pour into a popsicle mold, and freeze! Pull them out on any occasion for a good cool off!
Here are a few combinations to get you started…

1) Berry Bonanza
Strawberries
Blueberries
Raspberries
Plain Greek yogurt
Drizzle of honey
Squeeze of lemon juice

2) Banana Colada
