Easiest Dreamsicle Pops

Summer is only a few days away. This sunny season officially begins on June 21st so I thought it would be fun to share two dreamsicle recipes with you. They are so easy and healthy and have become two of my go-to’s for our 18-month-old when he is having a snack attack or when I need him to sit still for a few minutes. This is also an easy way to transition your small tots and big kids to healthier eating habits.

Living an on-the-go lifestyle sometimes causes our nutrition as parents to lack, as well as our children’s. So, I hope this quick little recipe will help you get back on track with health and nutrition in the summer months. Keep some on hand so that you rarely have to give in to other treats like ice cream, cake, cookies, etc. It may also be fun to have children who are old enough help you make the dreamsicle pops. However, this is a great treat for toddlers, children, and adults!

Cheers to living well.
