Strawberries n’ Yogurt Popsicles

June 9, 2018

Our teething toddler recently discovered popsicles and all their cool yumminess. We found a mini popsicle mold online that makes small popsicles that are just the right size for his cute little hands and mouth. He loves strawberries and yogurt, so we let that inspire these popsicles.

Strawberry Sangria Popsicles

July 2, 2015

Popsicles are one of the best summer treats. If you decide to make them at home, you can pick your favorite flavors AND your favorite shapes. A few summers ago, I found some fun sailboat and star molds online. We used them to make frozen treats for a recent party. Here is one of the recipes; it makes about 6 popsicles.
