Creamy Aqua Fresca Popsicles

When it’s hot outside my kids beg for popsicle after  popsicle all day long.  The only problem is that popsicles are loaded with sugar and that is the last thing they need!

When I made these popsicles with  some leftover aqua fresca and low fat vanilla yogurt, I was thrilled when they begged for more!  Now when they come inside for the twentieth time asking for another popsicle, I don’t feel guilty giving them another one.

 

Aqua Fresca Popsicles

 

Not only are these popsicles refreshing and flavorful but they much  healthier than the ones you buy in the store! You can’t go wrong with that combination.

Of course they aren’t just for kids. I promise you when you make these you will want to set a few aside for you as well!
