I love summer, it is my favourite time of year.  The neighbourhood is abuzz, everyone is outside instead of cooped up in our homes, tending to gardens, bike riding, walking, and visiting.  It’s the time of year for outdoor festivals and events, The Balloon Fest, The Rib Fest, many cultural food festivals and plenty of outdoor concerts.

It’s the time of year to pack up the car and go to the beach, or go camping or head to the park for a picnic.

We rarely travel throughout the summer, we have our very own resort retreat in our backyard.  Putting in the pool was the best decision we ever made and second was adding the fire pit.

When you look down our street, you’ll see one basketball net after another, and it’s not uncommon to see a few games going at the same time.  We keep our freezer in the garage, and I make sure to have it well stocked with frozen fruit pops, popsicles, freezies and ice cream on a stick.  The kids run in, grab a treat and back out they go.

The weekend is coming and I am sure to have some little ones heading over for a swim so I thought I would dust off my frozen pop molds and make some of my very own.  The best thing about making your own is you can add whatever fruit, yogurt or fruit juice you want, the combination possibilities are endless.

I used up the last of my frozen strawberries and blueberries.  I had tropical fruit juice (a combination of mango, pineapple, passion fruit, orange and apple) in the fridge but you can use whatever juice you have on hand.  You could also swap out the juice and use the juice of a lemon or a lime.  Liana’s favourite flavour is Strawberry-Yogurt and Matt loves Banana.

The freezer is now well stocked with Frozen Strawberry, Blueberry, Strawberry-Yogurt and Blueberry-Banana Pops.

The big question, how long do you think they’ll last, will they make it to the weekend or will I be back at it on Friday?
