Popsicle Recipes Your Kids Will Love

Good evening everybody!

With temperatures well into the upper 80s and 90s this time of year, I'm sure there are so many of our nannies that are trying to find ways to stay cool in the heat. And with that in mind, this week's Nanny Tip of the Week is going to be quite sweet and refreshing for everyone! We have a few great sweet treat recipes to share that are great for kids (and adults too!). Plus, these recipes are great as incentives for when your kiddos are behaving well or as a fun afternoon activity that can be enjoyed the next day at the pool, so it's a win-win situation! Thanks for reading and Chicago Collegiate Nannies hopes that you enjoy this week's tip so please enjoy!

1. Cherry Limeade Popsicles - This recipe is great because it's super simple and the limeade is homemade so you can always enjoy this in addition to these popsicles! And if you want to make this recipe even more authentic, be sure to use an ice pop mold to jazz this recipe up a bit. Check out the link below for the recipe!

2. Chocolate Covered Banana Pops - Want a recipe that combines fruit with chocolate? You've definitely got to give this recipe a try. Plus, you can totally customize based on whatever toppings you'd like (i.e. peanuts, toffee, sprinkles)! Feel free to modify this recipe to make it organic if your kids have specific dietary needs.

3. Frozen Fruit Pops - Feeling up to have a fruity frozen treat? This one is sure to cool you down and refresh you in the heat! Included in this recipe is kiwi, pineapple, watermelon and strawberries and only 5 grams of sugar so this is great for kids that don't need the added sugar before bedtime. You'll definitely want to check out this recipe this summer!

4. Peaches & Creme Popsicle - This recipe is a fun twist on a classic dessert. Plus, this is also great for kids that like that blend of fruit and creme (and what a great way to sneak in the daily fruit serving!). Check out the recipe below for more info!
