In our home, we try to eat as healthy and clean as possible. We also have a host of food allergies and sensitivities. There is Celiac, lactose intolerance, wheat, and food dye allergies. Having a home with these challenges has made purchasing any type of frozen treat difficult. I finally decided that it had to be less stressful and easier to make my own freezer pops at home than to try and navigate unknown ingredients and take any risks with my family.
A blender, a few simple ingredients and a mold is all you need to make delicious, natural treats. Dairy free, no added sugar or food coloring make these an easy, welcome treat for kids of all ages.
But would they pass the taste test? My children were pretty skeptical when I pulled out a mold out of the freezer, announcing that they would taste great…please just try them.
There were no bright wrappers or neon colors to grab their attention. But, because they are always good sports about trying everything that I make, they took a leap of faith and tasted all the pops that I made. And then they ate every last one of my freezer pops.
My picky teenage son, who loves processed junk food, said they were delicious; I think he was surprised. And then he asked me how soon I would be making them again.
I think they passed the test.
