Hi Everyone! I’m Nancy from The Bitter Side of Sweet! I am so glad to join you today while Katie is out of town! OH, one thing about that! Today I actually get to meet Katie! So I am SUPER excited to be able to meet her and her family while they are traveling!
This summer the kids have decided they wanted to eat popsicles for breakfast and stay at my side all day long! Well obviously both of these things are not possible for them to do everyday.
I stay pretty busy around the house with house work, cooking and keeping a blog running and popsicles are not quite the healthiest things for them to eat first thing in the morning.
So we started making yogurt pops together and adding fresh fruits into them. This way I feel pretty good about giving them popsicles in the morning and while we make them together they feel like they are getting mommy time!
There are endless possibilities when making these! They enjoy so much getting out the molds, helping me think of a flavor to add to the yogurt and mixing and pouring. They do have to wait at least 4 hours for their pops to be ready but they have learned to be completely patient when it comes to that! The end result is always worth it! ENJOY!
