It’s summertime and with all this heat, we need popsicles….daily! I grew up on sugary popsicles made with corn syrup and artificial colors. Sure they tasted good, but they were not good for me! I want to change that for my kids, so I have been whipping up some healthy popsicles in my kitchen that still taste delicious, but these are made with healthy ingredients. Full of healthy fats, vitamins, and minerals. I do not feel bad about letting my kids snack on them daily!
I came up with chocolate peppermint popsicles on a particularly hot day because I wanted something cooling, like peppermint. Chocolate and peppermint go so well together. These have quickly become a family favorite! If you are joining me from Rooted Blessings and her amazing Lemonade Lavender Popsicles, then welcome!
