With summers on their peak, it’s time to devour more and more ice creams and frozen delights with seasonal fruits and flavors bunged into. This year summer started with this lovely no churn easy strawberry frozen yogurt, followed by tangy and fragrant lemon lavender ice cream. What a cool start of the season, isn’t it? And now it’s time for this year’s popsicles, of course with more fresh and seasonal fruits thrown into. The flavors of season are singing out summer melodies sweetly and rather pleasingly. Popsicles are fun to do project, with kids. And it’s the perfect time, when kids have their summer holidays starting soon. I have been making popsicles every year, kind of a summer ritual now. I love those tangy lime and mint popsicles and I just can’t forget the lovely plum and basil popsicles. I believe popsicles are the yummiest and coolest way to eat your fruits in summer. And that’s healthy too, if you want it to be. You can either use honey/maple syrup/raw sugar, however you please. These tropical fruit yogurt popsicles are perfect treat for a hot summer afternoon. I have got mangoes and pineapple paired up with vanilla strained yogurt here on the lovely summer stick. It’s a super easy and kid friendly recipe, which I am sure you’d love to do with them.
