Homemade popsicles can be a fun activity with children



I have been eyeing popsicle molds for awhile now. I thought it would be fun to make different kinds of popsicles with my son. Plus, I would be able to control everything that goes into all the popsicles that we make.

I found these awesome popsicles molds on Amazon and decided to pick them up. When the package arrived, I was super excited and couldn't wait to show them to my son. Immediately we went on Pinterest and started looking up delicious popsicle recipes. It didn't take long for my son and me to put the new mold to use. 

I merged together a few recipes to come up with the one I used below. It was fantastic. The molds worked great and were so easy to use. I loved that my son was also able to fill the popsicles easily without any mess. I was expecting there was going to be a lot of cleanup after making popsicles but there was virtually none, apart from putting the ingredients away and putting the blender in the dishwasher. The Lebice Popsicle set comes with a funnel that makes it so easy to fill the popsicles. 


Ingredients
1/2 cup frozen, slightly thawed blueberries
1/2 cup frozen, slightly thawed 
strawberries
approximately 1 cup vanilla greek yogurt
approximately 1 tablespoon honey

Step 1
blend blueberries with 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt and 1/2 tablespoon or so of honey. separate evenly (through funnel) among the 6 popsicle molds.

Step 2
use funnel to add a layer of vanilla greek yogurt to the center layer. 

Step 3
blend strawberries with 1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt and 1/2 tablespoon or so of honey. separate evenly (through funnel) among the 6 popsicle molds.


Step 4
freeze for 8-24 hours or until popsicles are frozen.

Step 5
enjoy!

Note: to easily get the popsicle out of the mold, run the popsicle under hot water for approximately 30 seconds. It should then just slide out of the mold.
