It is summertime and this week has been a super hot one. Popsicles are a favorite cold afternoon treat around here. If you have checked out the frozen ice cream treat prices recently at your grocery store and if you have any idea how fast we can go through a box of Popsicles you will likely understand that making frozen pops at home can be a huge money saver. In addition to the savings, I also like homemade pops as they are much healthier than bought ones. And isn’t half the fun of homemade pops making them?
I recently received these yummy and refreshing looking Popsicle recipes from eMeals and thought I would share a few of them with you.
