I have a love hate relationship with popsicles. On one hand I like that they are normally vegan (assuming they aren’t a “creamy” variety). They don’t usually contain any common allergens like soy, dairy, gluten, or eggs. This makes them an easy treat to bring to school for the whole class to enjoy. On the other hand the majority of store bought popsicles are nothing but dyed sugar water. The fact that your tongue stays red for hours after eating a red popsicle is not a good sign for what is happening inside your body. Like most kids, Trey loves popsicles. I try to keep homemade popsicles in our freezer for him. Recently we bought a new box of popsicle molds from Tovolo. I decided to try out a few new homemade popsicle flavors. The results were tasty and have been helping us beat the summer heat.
