These homemade frozen popsicles are packed full of nutrients, wholesome fruit, and best of all, my kids love them!
Every summer I enjoy making healthy popsicles with all the fresh and juicy summer fruit.
I typically blend a mix of fruit (berries, bananas, peaches, watermelon, etc.) with a few leaves of kale or spinach, but you can’t do too much or they will notice!
I tried this recipe last week, except I left out the graham crackers (too many crumbs)!
Nash and Kenzie loved them. Best of all they eat popsicles at night for dessert rather than ice cream!
