They are simply a MUST in summer! Popsicle or Ice lolly or Ice pop, call it what you want but the fact that it is a frozen treat which the kids can consume slowly, makes it perfect the summer snack. So let's turn it into a healthy treat and lets hope they wont ask for an ice cream when we are out for a walk. You can use almost any smoothie ingredient you're accustomed to, but below are a few ideas. Just blend all the ingredients together until smooth and pour into your moulds:
