We do not have air conditioning in our house. For ninety-percent of the year it is quite managable…for that other ten percent we eat popsicles and sit in front of a heavy-duty fan. 😉
When I was a kid, my mom made popsicles out of kool-aid and sugar. They may not have been the healthiest choice but they were cheap, made with love, and I never knew the difference.
Now that I’m a mom, I find myself looking for similar ways to cool my kids off.
While I’m not an amazing cook, by any stretch of the imagination, I do enjoy playing around with different frozen treats for those hot afternoons in front of the fan.
We’ve tried quite a few concoctions. Recently, fresh fruit and sparkling water have been our favorite.
I use LaCroix, a healthy alternative to soda, that contains no sugar or caffeine. It comes in a ton of different natural flavors including: grapefruit, lemon, lime, berry, passionfruit, etc. It’s got the bubbly, carbonated goodness without any questionable ingredients.
For a little extra sweetness, I squeeze in a couple drops of Stevia and pour the beverage over fruit before popping them into the freezer.
Result: Yumminess and cool, happy children. <3
