Last summer I picked up some Popsicle molds to make our own (less sugary) Popsicles. Not to mention that Billy is always wanting a ‘treat’ after dinner and I wanted to make something I could feel good about us having. Well, they were a hit. We had a get together planned with our friends this weekend (Nate & Alisa, and JD & Sadie) whom all have kids (Soren & Jude and Olive & Adelae) and I was in charge of dessert, so Viola Popsicles! I knew the kids would love them. Everyone including the adults loved this treat, I also made sure to pick up some molds for my friends to make their own with the kids, and from what I was told that is the first thing Soren wanted to do the following morning, YAY! These are easy and you should try your own creations, our friend Brittany said she pours flavored yogurt into hers for her kids-great idea! Enjoy!
