Homemade Popsicles!

Now that the south Texas heat has started to climb the boys and I have been making popsicles to keep cool. Although I don't normal push specific brands or products, I am going to put in a little plug for the new Silk Fruit and Protein drink. It turns out they make yummy and embarrassingly easy popsicles. We tried the peach mango and the boys loved them. The little one, who has figured out he is strong enough to open the freezer door, tried to help himself to seconds. He came into my office holding the popsicle mold out to me and asking me for "more popskicle, Momma." I love the way little people speak.

If you go to the Silk web site right now they have a coupon you can use off one purchase (thought you have to sign up for their newsletter) Silk Fruit and Protein Coupon

Yesterday the little and I made strawberry yogurt pops. The boys love Jala frozen yogurt bars, but they are expensive so I came up with our own. They are only slightly more complicated than pouring Silk Fruit and Protein into popsicle molds.

Strawberry Yogurt Pops

1 cup strawberry or vanilla Greek yogurt (I used The Greek Gods Honey Strawberry)
1 scant cup strawberries, cut into small pieces
1/4 cup vanilla almond milk

Mix almond milk and yogurt together. Add in strawberry pieces. Lightly grease popsicle molds with coconut oil to make it easier to get pops out of mold. Pour liquid into popsicle molds and freeze until solid.
