It’s officially summer! YAY!
Except that I really don’t like the heat. It makes me cranky and the temperature fluctuation going indoors and outdoors typically leaves me breaking out in hives. But enough about my weirdness. I’ve noticed that Skibbles also gets irritable if she’s too hot.
Obviously, as a mom, I want to do my best to keep them happy, which in the summer time means plenty of snacks that are cooling and refreshing. But also, I need them to be healthy. Most store-bought summer treats are loaded with refined sugars and dyes, and so my goal this summer is to come up with a combination of various healthy alternatives.
I enabled my Mini Chef to help make these delicious Blueberry Kiwi Lemonade ice pops are after a hot summer day, we all devoured them. With just 4 ingredients (one being water), they are super healthy and very cost efficient as well. It’s a win-win for everyone.
Skibbles loved helping me make these and there really wasn’t much that she couldn’t do on her own. We work great as a team though and she always asks to do it together, so I happily oblige.
Just a little random fact: July is National Blueberry Month – so be on the lookout for these nutrient dense beauties on sale soon!
Here’s our super quick and simple Blueberry Kiwi Lemonade Ice Pops Recipe
- 4 lemons
- 3 kiwis
- 1/2 pint of blueberries
- 1 1/2 cups cold water
Peel and slice the kiwis. Cut each slice in half.
Juice the 4 lemons. You should have about 1/2 a cup of fresh lemon juice.
In your popsicle molds, layer the blueberries and kiwi slices until you reach the top of your mold.
In a small bowl, mix together the fresh lemon juice and water.
Stir to combine.
Pour juice into each ice pop mold up to the top.
Tap on counter to remove any air bubble and top with additional juice if necessary.
Insert ice pop sticks.
Place in freezer at least for hours until frozen solid or overnight.
Watch us make it! Enjoy!
