It seems like everyone is melting in the heat this summer. I’m not complaining about our balmy 70-degree weather here in San Diego. Our heat wave starts in August and ends in October. But, I’m prepared. It could be the dead of winter, but my kids are always ready for ice cream and popsicles. I don’t get it. It’s definitely a kid-thing. And my husband’s thing, too, who happens to be a giant kid, disguised as a 40-something man.
My kids also adore smoothies. I’ve already written my personal tips for making smoothies more nutritious and healthy. These smoothies help my family boost our immune system and battle colds and sniffles we suffer through during the cootie-filled-months.
But, when summer rolls around and when the temperature goes up, the smoothies turn into smoothie popsicles.
It’s not rocket science.
It’s not like this hasn’t been done before.
Your kids will think your nuts when you offer them a popsicle for breakfast.
And you can secretly smile, knowing it’s healthy AND fun.
Stay cool everyone!
