How to Make Healthy Ice Pops & Frozen Treats
By Kelly, Contributing Writer
Growing up, there were few things more exciting during summer than hearing that little ditty playing that meant only one thing … the Ice Cream Man is coming!
Soon he’d be rounding the corner of our street, and so my little brother and I would make a mad dash inside the house to plead for some cash – and quick – so we could make it back outside in time to get our hot little hands on a cool, refreshing ice cream treat.
Fast forward to today … not much has changed. Precious little faces still light up each time they hear the familiar tune that promises sweet treats in colorful wrappers. Sadly, we now that know these nostalgic treats are chock-full of unhealthy preservatives and harmful additives.
So what’s a real food lovin’ momma to do? Why not say goodbye to the ice cream man and hello to the “Ice Cream MOM!”

What a fun post! I love the picture up top. I would love to start making some frozen treats for my children. I know they would love it! I think the kefir fruitsicles would be a hit at our house! Now to get some popsicle molds. 🙂
