Some cool treats: Ice cream and ice pops


It is summer and ice cream season is here, we have fun making it with our Play and Freeze ice cream maker. Making popsicles is a childhood favorite for many, but in the past our family has only used fruit juice for our popsicles, but finally the ice pop trend has hit our household and we have started to make ice pops out of the fruit and not just the juice. It tastes so good and it is fun and easy for kids to make.

So why not take advantage of the bounty of summer and make some ice pop from berries and fruit? Your kids will like to help you as well.
