Summertime and ice pops are the perfect pair! They go together like peanut butter and jelly. Some of my best childhood memories are summers in Florida.

Whether we were at the beach, in the backyard, hanging out with friends or with the family at Disney World it seems like most of my memories revolve around summer. Granted, in Florida (much like here in Arizona) summer pretty much spans from March through October which could explain a lot.

I remember growing up we always had a freezer full of those fruit juice ice pops that come in the plastic tube. I swear I ate them every day. So, naturally, I wanted my daughter to grow up with those same memories that I hold so dear.

So, a few years ago I started making my popsicles, and now we have our very own stockpile in our freezer. Every day, year round. They are one of my daughter's favorite treats. I make recipes that are protein packed for a healthy snack, and then I also make fruit varieties that are loaded with natural sugar and are perfect for giving her on a hot summer day when she is out playing and very active.

I love how refreshing they are, and I enjoy choosing my own ingredients. Apparently, I have set a standard for what ice pops should taste like in my daughter's eyes. When we started swim lessons, the instructor would give out the plastic packaged fruit juice pops as a reward for a good class. No bueno!

My daughter would take a taste and then make a yuck face and hand it to me. That happened twice; then I ended up making some homemade ice pops and giving a full selection to the instructor.

Enjoy!

With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
