Allergy-Friendly Summertime Popsicles


As an allergy mom, I am always looking for fun treats for my boys. This summer I checked out a few different recipes on Pinterest, but I did not find many that were a must try so my oldest and I made our own.

Homemade Popsicles

What you’ll need:

  • *Popsicle Molds (I found mine at Target. Ikea also makes a great silicone push popsicle mold)
  • *Gatorade (I used sugar-free. Not too sweet but just right for hot summer days)
  • *Gummy bears, worms or fish (Optional)

 

Let the fun begin:

Step 1

Once you have your supplies gathered, set your molds up in the provided stand. If you are using push pop molds, I would set them inside a cup to prevent them from falling over.

Step 2

If you are using any gummies, drop them in now. Pour Gatorade over gummies and fill just the mold to just below the “Fill Line.”

Step 3

Put your lids on.

Step 4

Place your popsicles on a flat surface in your freezer. These popsicles took about 4-6 hours to freeze.

These popsicles are super easy fun to make. The best part is you can use anything to make them. Mom’s if you are looking for an adult popsicle, choose some delicious fruits like strawberries and kiwis, drop these in and add your choice of beverage (wine is great).

What I  love most about these is even with allergies I can customize each popsicle for both of my kiddos.

Other fun treats that I love to make is Vegan Almond Butter Cookies, best of all you can easily turn these cookies into ice cream sandwiches, Fruit Kabobs, and Snickers Salad.

I hope you enjoy these yummy treats as much as we do!
