Summer also means popsicles! Not the cheap store bought kind, but actual popsicles that are made with nutritious real food! I’m always fascinated (and confused) as to why they make kids foods (or any food for that matter) with dyes, artificial sweeteners, and colors, instead of just using real food? I thought I’d share an interesting article I found where popsicles won the worst food of the week award along with the reasons why. I bet you’ll want to run out and make your own like we did, and these are popsicles you can get pretty excited about once you read the nutrition facts. Enjoy!

- 13.5 oz Coconut milk
