What is your favorite way to keep cool in the summer?
Well, we all love ice cream, but I was so done spending $3 for one ice cream from the ice cream truck every other day.
We were going broke in the summer just buying ice cream – and we were putting on the pounds.
Landon loves a popsicle as much as ice cream, and since I bought ice pop molds, we now make them all the time at home.
Advantages of making your own popsicle:
- low-cost: you save so much money making popsicles at home
- convenient: you can make more at any time and don’t have to go to the store
- easy: just pour juice into the molds and freeze
- you control the ingredients: a lot of store-bought popsicles are filled with toxic food dyes and extra sugar. Making them yourself with 100% juice makes them healthy
- homemade ice pops have a lot less calories than ice cream
- it even makes “eating” your vegetables easier — especially for your kids — when you make ice pops with fruit and vegetable juices
Carrot Apple Almond Milk Popsicle
You can buy popsicle molds on Amazon or in supermarkets for little money — just make sure you buy some that are BPA free.
It’s so easy to make all kinds of different popsicle creations with your favorite juices, milk, or yogurt.
Carrot Apple Almond Milk Popsicle Recipe:
To make these ice pops look more fun and sneak calcium into them, fill half of the popsicle molds with almond milk and put them in the fridge.
Once that first layer froze, top them off with a mix of carrot and apple juice.
After just half an hour, you’ll have a nutritious, inexpensive, cold treat your whole family will enjoy.
