We created frozen berry popsicles and had fun in the sun with Banana Boat as part of a sponsored post for Socialstars #BestSummerEver
Homemade popsicles are always on our summer bucket list. They are easy and fun for kids to help make, plus they taste yummy! My little sous chef requested berry popsicles this year. They needed to have blueberries, blackberries and raspberries and I just so happened to find a frozen bag of mixed berries that contained all of his suggested ingredients. You can use fresh berries too, but we love making fruit smoothies out of our leftover frozen berries. The recipe calls for lemonade, but you could also use coconut milk or make your own sugar-less lemonade for a healthier version.
The funnest part about popsicle making, aside from sampling your creation, is the pouring and scooping of the ingredients. This can get a little messy, so I suggest spraying on Banana Boat® SunComfort™ Clear UltraMist® Sunscreen (available in SPF 30 and 50+) and head outside.This is our new fave sunscreen from Banana Boat® because not only does it moisturize and protect, it allows sand to easily brush off and is water resistant up to 80 minutes. No need to worry about the messes when you are outside, protected by sunscreen, and the kids can just go play in the water to clean off.
Frozen Mixed Berries
Small Paper Cups
Fill paper cups with frozen berries. Pour lemonade into the berry filled cups, leaving a little room at the top. Place a popsicle stick in the center of each cup. Freeze overnight. Once frozen, peel the paper cup off of the popsicle and immediately enjoy outside before they melt!
To make a fruit smoothie out of leftover ingredients, add 2 cups water and 2 cups frozen berries + a banana to your blender and blend until smooth. Feel free to add a cup of spinach or kale to the mix for extra greens.
