Homemade Popsicles

There are a lot of perks to summer – no school, extra sunshine, team bonding and, of course, summer camp. But one thing’s for sure … it’s hot out there! Staying hydrated should always be a priority, but cooling off with something delicious is also a must during these warm summer months. Ice cream, slushies and frozen treats are all fun to buy, but with these two popsicle recipes, you get a little bit of everything, and you’ll be thrilled to make something so tasty on your own.
