Local Pops

Nothing is better than a popsicle on a warm summer day. Especially when it's a pretty darn local popsicle!
These pops are made with some unsweetened soy yogurt (I used Wildwood brand), strawberries from the backyard, and maple syrup from Wisconsin. Sure, they got a little more ice-crystally than commercial popsicles, but no store-bought popsicle can beat homegrown strawberry flavor. The kids (and I) gobbled these up in no time. Next I promised them some decidedly non-local peanut butter popsicles...but who knows what it'll be after that! I can't wait to make some Door County cherry popsicles!

Heck ya!

When I was a kid, my mom used to have us make our own Popsicles using nothing but fruit juice. I still remember them very fondly, & I'm grateful that I wasn't introduced to the store-bought variety until later in life (although without those, I never would have been aware of the flavor "blue").

You are giving your kids a small but important gift!
