Your six-year-old is on a soccer team and it is your turn to bring the post-game snack. Instead of handing out a bag of cookies, consider making homemade popsicles for a healthier, refreshing alternative. The treat is easy to make and sure to be a team favorite!
Just follow the directions below.
Recipe time: 15-20 minutes for preparation; 1 hour for freezing
After the popsicles are completely frozen—voila! Grab a hold of the sticks and gently pull each one out of the ice cube slots and the treats are ready to be served. You have made a healthy, refreshing alternative to an unnecessary, high calorie after game snack.
Add pineapple fruit to your popsicle recipe or consider a berry good version.
