4 Summer Popsicle Recipes Toddlers Will Love

If you’ve ever met my toddler you would know that he loves his stuffed alligator (Anton), bubbles, Netflix (he binges just as much as his parents), and popsicles. Every morning before he goes to school and every afternoon when he comes home from school, I am approached by the sweetest little voice saying “POPsicle mommy? Peas!” When my son flashes me those puppy dog eyes and sweet smile, I’m done! He gets whatever he wants (not all the time, but most of the time) and it’s almost always a popsicle.

Since summer is right around the corner and my son has an insatiable appetite for a frozen treat, I have created 4 popsicle recipes perfect for breakfast or an afternoon snack. Your toddlers, and even you, will be thrilled with these icy delights.
