Homemade popsicle Wednesday! Summer fun

It has been quite a week here in my home with some news that has left our family in a bit of shock and still trying to process. As I process I am sure I will share more but for now I thought I would share ONE small way I am making summer time with kiddos fun. They picked the day I picked the idea!

Feel free to join us in the fun!!!
Every Wednesday a new homemade popsicle at our house.

Popsicle Wednesday Summer fun has begun at our house. We started today with Banana pops.  

Here are a few homemade popsicles ideas we are starting with:
Chocolate Banana pops
Fruit and Yogurt popsicle
Pure Strawberry popsicle

This was a helpful post on how she made her banana pops I did basically everything she did.

Makes: 6 (4-oz.) pops 
2 small ripe bananas, peeled and sliced 
1½ cups frozen strawberries or 1 cup frozen blueberries 
2 cups non-fat plain yogurt 
2 tbsp. honey 

Makes: 4 pops
1 cup mashed strawberries
1/2 cup water
1 tbs sugar (original recipe had 4 to 5 tbs)
Juice of half lime or lemon

Here is our version and thoughts on the Banana pops:
The best advice was to freeze the bananas on the stick for 30 min to an hour before. It helped especially for the kids not to get as messy because the banana was so cold it hardened the chocolate right away. 
They were tasty and messy!! 
Another idea is to roll the banana pops in nuts. 

Summer has begun and again our balcony is such a big help to us!

We would love to have you join us in our popsicle making craze this summer!

Using what we have to create and today it is the freezer and some fruit!
