Craving for popsicle recipes?
When summer comes, there’s not much more refreshing than a popsicle on a hot day. For me, popsicles transport me to childhood, to jubilant summer days spent in bathing suits and bare feet. Running through sprinklers, giggling and carefree. My friends and I would scamper inside, dripping water all over the floor, and be rewarded with blue and red and neon green popsicles that stained our tongues and teeth. I cringe to think what those popsicles were made of, but back then, they were heaven.
If you love popsicles too, then you’ll love this list of healthy popsicle recipes (or at least, healthier) we’ve put together for you. They’re great all summer long, or even during the winter if you’re feeling particularly nostalgic for those balmy summer days.
