Are you a popsicle and fruit bar person? We are. We LOVE us some popsicles in the summer, spring, winter, anytime…in fact it could be 5 degrees outside and my kids would ask for popsicles.
With all of the food allergies and sensitivities in our house, we can’t do corn syrup or food dyes. And it’s hard to find a popsicle or fruit bar without corn syrup products in them. Believe me, we’ve tried. We actually prefer the Edy’s Outshine bars don’t have any of that junk, are made with real fruit juice. Otherwise, our other option is organic popsicles and $10 for 4 bars isn’t really an option. I at least know the kids are getting some fruit in their snack too for a treat. I am hooked on the Black Cherry flavor.
And if you melt it in a glass for the kids , it makes a yummy slushy. Sometimes I will melt a few together and let them mix flavors and they end up with a tropical fruit slushy.
Below here are some grown up frosty drinks from popsicles!
I have to admit as a grown-up I like having a treat myself, Here are a few “recipes”
2 strawberry flavored bars just until they are slightly soft and mash them with a spoon, and add a splash or two of rum
2lime bars and a bit of tequila makes an instant margarita
and 1 Coconut bar, 1/2 cup of pineapple juice, and a splash rum would be good with a bit of pina colada…
2 Peach, a few sprigs of crushed fresh mint and splash of bourbon
…Always drink responsibly!
Summer has to be yummy for the grown ups too!
