Pouches to Popsicles {Giveaway}

Summer might not be here yet, but in the South it seems we've skipped right over Spring and have gone straight to Summer. I'm not complaining one bit, but this means we've had to break out our arsenal of hot weather combatants a little earlier than planned. Our afternoons are filled with homework, soccer practices, and dance recital rehearsals mixed with pool and popsicle breaks in between.

Again, not complaining.

Give this girl hot temps, a pool, and any excuse to drink frosty beverages decorated with tiny umbrellas I'm in!

Although, I really don't need an excuse.

The moment the temps get over 90 degrees it's like a switch happens in the kids. Their little minds tell them to arm themselves with water guns, as few layers of dry fit attire as possible (Sorry neighbors - my kids do own a full outfit. I promise. Maybe.), and the only things to be consumed are frozen treats in the form of ice cream or popsicles. Or ice cream. Or popsicles.

It's a vicious frozen cycle. And one I typically endorse because it's the south and it's HOT. I mean, I've even turned wine into ice cream.

But someone told me a little trick about trying to make this a slightly healthier part of our daily diet. And I'm down with that too. Because I ate cake for breakfast and I know to be successful in life you need a little thing called balance.

The trick is so easy, I can't believe I had never thought of this before. To make a much healthier popsicle treat that kids (and you) will actually like is soooo easy. Like mind blowing easy. All you have to do is use one of the kids pouch snacks and freeze it. Seriously.

I mean it makes so much sense. And it's genius on so many levels. One - obviously because it's healthy. Two - I literally don't have to mix any ingredients. Three - Like almost zero cleaning since I don't have to use a blender, ice cream maker or any other appliance. Genius!


What you'll need...

  • Pouches - I typically use Slammer Snacks because we always have these on hand the kids love all the flavors. Plus they are sourced from organic ingredients, and packed with protein that kids need to fuel all that fun in their lives.  
  • Popsicle mold - I use this one, but there are a ton of popsicle mold options out there. 
  • Wooden sticks - If your mold is like mine and needs wooden sticks. Several options come with reusable sticks. 
  • Optional - If you want your popsicle a little sweeter mix in some coconut water or a teaspoon of honey. Still healthy without adding a ton of sugar. 

What to do...

  • Squeeze one pouch into a bowl or popsicle mold. Mix in desired sweetener. 
  • Place popsicle mold into position in freezer. Let freeze for approximately 3 hours. 
  • Serve and enjoy!

See! So easy!

My kids love them and I've been known to enjoy one or two myself. I love that it's an easy, yet healthy treat we can enjoy all summer long without too much effort. Because in my book that's what summer is about - easy!
