Berry Popsicles

berry popsicle recipeIt sure is hot around these parts. We had such a mild beginning to our summer and then, BAM! 100+ degrees for days at a time. The kind of heat that makes you want to sit around in your pj’s in your cool house and do nothing but read books and eat popsicles all day. I am okay with that, are you?

These two little people seem to be as well.

They think that these berry popsicles are pretty delicious. I would bet that other people would too. Would you like to know how we made them? Of course, I will share with you.

    1. I hope that you do. My kids loved these and didn’t even realize that they are really healthy.

  12. Hello, I have same molds but for some reason I couldn’t get my pops out of the mold. I run hot water on them and then only half came out on the stick.What do you think can be a reason? Is there any tips, some secret ingredient as sugar(i heard) . It should be so easy…:(

    1. Dip them for a few seconds in the hot water, about 15 seconds. It takes a little coaxing sometimes.
