Summer Treats!

I'm sure most moms pull these things out each summer, but if not, here is a good and healthy idea for summer treats for you and your little ones.

Go to Target or Wal-Mart and buy some plastic ice-pop molds. I bought mine last year at Target for about $1. Get creative with the recipes you make for your family. My mom used to pour orange juice into the molds when we were growing up. Recently, I made this recipe and my kids LOVED it:

sugar free vanilla pudding mix
2 Cups milk
crushed oreos

I mixed them all together and it made cookies and cream pops. They were very yummy!
This morning, I took a thawed bag of frozen fruit and put it in the blender until it was a liquid.

You can use anything.....Crystal Light, Kool-aid, Grape Juice...get creative and healthy! My kids usually get one after their afternoon naps, when we can all sit down and enjoy one together. Just remember to run the molds under warm water for a few seconds before popping them out (this makes them break apart effortlessly)!
