The Perfect Treat to Beat the Heat

Don’t you miss those homemade popsicles your mom used to make you as a kid? Well now you can have them anytime! All you have to do is mix your favorite ingredients in a bowl and pop them in the freezer. You can also put a healthy spin on the popsicles by adding fresh fruit or vegetables instead of using artificial refined sugar at the store.

My personal favorite is the blueberry-lavender lemonade pop. It has ¼ cup sugar, one teaspoon of culinary lavender, 1¼  cups of water, three teaspoons of lemon juice, ½ cup of blueberries (fresh or frozen). Invite your friends over and you can try a delicious new recipe! The beauty is that you can add your own twist and make each treat different. It is going to be hot this summer, so after you jump in the pool, you can take them out of the freezer and enjoy a delicious and refreshing snack.
