I love sweets, especially cold sweet treats in the summer. While I think all things should be in moderation and that sugary treats are fine occasionally, my sweet tooth doesn’t really understand moderation.
Fruit is my go-to to help with any sugar cravings. This time of the year I really crave fruit. Something about all the delicious fruits coming into season makes me want to eat them all.
Fruity popsicles have been a warm weather favorite of mine since I was a kid. I have also loved making popsicles for a long time. I remember making popsicles with our neighbor friends and thinking it was pretty much the coolest thing. I still think it’s pretty fun!
The popsicle molds we had when I was a kid were plastic. No one really knew the dangers of plastic those days. Now I know it’s best to avoid plastic for food storage, especially with acidic foods. For a long time I thought this meant no more homemade popsicles. I was pretty excited to find there are stainless steel popsicle molds! They are safer and very durable.
I honestly haven’t used mine as much as I should but I’m hoping to change that this summer. Considering it’s not even summer yet and I already made some, I think I’m off to a good start.
My first popsicles of the season of course had to be some fruity, sweet ones! I didn’t want them to have added sugar though. I was reading through the book 25 Sweet Treats for Summer by Dena Norton and saw strawberry banana popsicles and knew I had to try them! They fit what I wanted perfectly and I had all of the ingredients on hand.
They are easy to make and delicious! The hard part is waiting for them to finish freezing so you can eat them.
