Summer is in full swing at our house, meaning two things:
- Each morning starts with battling my toddler over ‘sunscream’ application.
- I hear “Can I have a popsicle?” at least twenty times a day.
She literally just asked if she could have a popsicle during sunscream application.
In an effort to curb sugar intake/retain my sanity, I decided to get creative in the kitchen. Here are my favourite cooling summer treats for your tiny hot tamale.
Watermelon Ice Popsicles:
Chop one whole watermelon into cubes
Blend on high with a ½ cup of water
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze
“You’re Driving Me Bananas” Popsicles:
Peel 3-4 ripe bananas
Insert popsicle sticks into the bottom
Place on a cookie tray and freeze
Roll in melted chocolate, coconut, nuts or peanut butter and serve
