To me, the start of summer always means popsicles. Nice, cool, fruity bars of deliciousness. Since my daughter has started her end-of-school-year countdown (she is equal parts elated and dramatically depressed about it), summer is breathing down my neck (in case you were wondering, there are 15 school days left after today. Eeeeep!).
So what does one do when trying to face the fact that three months of little to no productivity are heading in your direction? Why get lost in the time warp that is Pinterest, of course, and waste a little more.
Here are some particularly delicious looking popsicle recipes I came across in my travels:
1 tropical smoothie :: 2 Samoa :: 3 strawberry :: 4 strawberry shortcake
5 fresh fruit in water :: 6 Cranberry Cherry
Do you have any favorite popsicle recipes? I’m always on the hunt for a good one!
On a sticky summer afternoon there aren’t many things that are more refreshing than a fruity, ice-cold popsicle. These iconic treats totally embody summertime fun.
In our house we always have apple popsicles ready to go for when our bottomless pit of a daughter wants a little treat. We just pour apple juice into an empty ice tray, cover it with tin foil and make tiny slices that we can slide mini-popsicle sticks from our local craft store into. Quick, easy, cheap and healthy, she even requests these mini-pops for dessert!
But while they are perfectly acceptable to a five year old, mommy needs a little something more to satisfy her craving (ok, a lot more).
I saw an awesome popsicle post over on A Cup of Jo a few weeks ago and I’ve been drooling at the thought of these yummies ever since. While I haven’t had the chance to try them out myself yet, I’ve been collecting mouth-watering popsicle recipes that I need to try. Here are a few (just click the picture for the recipe):

chocolate cheesecake popsicle via Shine
strawberry coconut popsicle via The Tomkat Studio
These big girl popsicles would actually be great to serve at a summertime party. The Tomkat Studio has some super cute (and free!) printables on their site that you can dress your pops up a with if you’re feeling fancy.
