For an easy yet still healthy summer snack try this uber-healthy blueberry lemonade popsicle recipe. Your kids will love it and you will be happy its do darn good for them too!
My kids love popsicles and who can blame them the cold treat the hot summer, it’s a match made in heaven right?
Well except if you are talking about store bought popsicles that is. There is the artificial colors, high fructose corn syrup, the trash…
It’s like my “mom brain” takes over and I no longer like those frozen treats that symbolized the hot summer days of my childhood.
My solution to all that garbage thats in typical store bought popsicles is to make my own.
For this lady over here, it’s a total win I know what’s in them, I can make sure its organic if I want to. They cost a fraction of healthier ones at the store, and I don’t have to worry about producing all that excess garbage going to a landfill somewhere.
Healthy Popsicle Recipe
See I see “healthy food” a little different than most. Labeling something sugar free only to have sucralose or aspartame or some other chemical concoction of a sweetener in it, doesn’t make it to a healthy food category for me.
So I mentioned this blueberry lemonade popsicle recipe is healthy right? It is, and here is why.
- First of all, they are sugar-free but not made with “non-sugar junk” these are sweetened with nature’s goodness, pure simple honey.
- These sweet treats are made with the whole lemon. That’s right not just the lemon juice. The whole lemon is edible and the peel is absolutely packed with healthy nutrients. Also, try this whole-lemon lemonade recipe!
- Blueberries are a superfood, and they add plenty of natural color to these sweet lemony treats.
