Summer in Florida is in full swing. Sure the kids are still in school for a couple more weeks, but the heat and humidity are setting in. So…it’s frozen pops season!
We get bored of store bought popsicles so we make our own frozen ice pops. Since popsicles are one of the components in my parenting toolkit, my daughter went through a few years of two or more popsicles a day. (Read why—> here.) Luckily, popsicles are more a treat than a necessity right now in our lives. We like trying new homemade popsicle recipes for the fun of it.
There is just something about that feeling when a sweet frozen treat touches your tongue on a stifling hot day. It’s like jumping into a cold spring on a 100-degree day. It’s refreshing and you want more!
But, I also use popsicles to ensure that my children are getting necessary nutrients.

My little boy goes through spurts when I watch what and how he eats and all I can think is, “when did my sweet boy turn into an insatiable billy goat?” (I think of goats because my sister wants to start a landscaping company that rents out goats. She’s the girliest person I know. Just thinking about it makes me laugh.)
Anyway, my kid is always hungry. He loves to swim all summer–which makes him even hungrier.
I wanted to make filling, healthy popsicles for him to snack on.

The following may include affiliate links. Make sure you check out Ibotta for rebates before heading to the grocery store.
1 container Annie’s Organic Whole Milk Yogurt,Summer Strawberry
1 ripe banana
3-4 ripe strawberries
splash of milk
Mash banana and blend together with a splash of milk.
Chop up strawberries and puree with the yogurt.
Drop a heaping spoonful of the banana mixture into each mold. Do the same with a spoonful of Annie’s Homegrown Yogurt and strawberry mixture on top of the banana puree. Repeat until the four molds are full.
Freeze at least 4 hours or overnight.
When completely frozen, run water over the bottom of the mold and gently remove popsicles.
The banana is a great source of potassium while the strawberry has loads of Vitamin C. I like the added calcium and protein from the yogurt. Annie’s new yogurt is organic and made from healthy whole milk. It’s a healthy option for my yogurt loving little boy. This week you can get 2 Four Packs for $5.00 at Publix!
