Summer Survival Guide- Homemade Popsicles with Catherine from Weelicious!

My name is Catherine McCord, founder and mommy blogger of Weelicious.com, a great source for moms to find fast, fresh and easy recipes for babies, toddlers, kids and the whole family!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for…homemade popsicles! Summer is right around the corner and what other way to treat your little ones than to have popsicles! Homemade popsicles that is! Store bought popsicles itself have so much sugar in them, not only is it bad for you but you also lose all the great, sweet natural taste of the fruit. Not to mention, all the unfamiliar ingredients listed on the side of the box that you can’t pronounce.

Homemade popsicles are not only free of all chemicals and cheap to make but you know exactly what you are putting in those popsicles. Also, it’s so easy and fun to prepare with your kids like having them place the fruit in the blender and pushing the button to see everything swirl, swish and puree!

Take these yummy Strawberry Popsicles for instance, packed with vitamin C, a vibrant artificial coloring-free red, and a flavor that is so sweet and delicious, your kids will be asking for more! The best part is that this recipe makes 6 popsicles, perfect for any summer day heat and enough for everyone to enjoy!

This is great! I have molds, but the only recipes I've come across were full of sugar, or syrup! Thanks~
