Welcome back to WEEK 2 of our Kid’s Summer Cooking School! I hope you and your kiddos are enjoying the summer as well as this fun activity. If you would like to check out all of the cooking school classes, click here. This week, it’s all about that
bass, oops, homemade popsicles! There are about 1,000 variations of healthy pops. You can make them with fruit juice, Sprite, milk, coconut cream or a mashed up nanner (aka banana)…the list is endless! Next, you want to talk about all the goodies you can add in? Let’s just suffice it to say the combinations are limitless.
Popsicles are a perfect summer treat for any time of day. Except for breakfast. That’s where I draw the line. Unless it has bacon in it. Then, the line must be redrawn. 😉
I loved the popsicles we had as a kid, either the variety pack of individual pops or the bigger-than-life, red-white-blue rocket. I’ll admit, I didn’t get many of those, but I sure drooled over them. Why didn’t we realize we could make our own popsicles with our own favorite fruits (or even veggies!). Looking at most of the grocery store popsicles, they are filled with corn syrup and sugar. But, they don’t need to be. And they are so much more delicious when you use real ingredients. And, I can’t tell you how much fun it was for the kids to make. Total win-win.

Now the hard part…waiting for them to freeze. Why don’t you forget about the laundry, mom, and sit down and play a game with your kids, while you wait for your popsicles to freeze? 😉 Enjoy, it’s summer! By the way, the popsicles will take at least 4 hours to freeze. Run warm water over the bottom of the pop molds. Then, turn the molds over and pinch the top to release the popsicles. (And yes, we learned this the hard way! 🙂
