Add granola, cashews, chocolate candy, and almonds.
Add sunflower seeds, cashews, almonds, dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds and raisins.
Like trail mix, homemade popsicles are a treat that you can customize however you like! You can use an ice cube tray to make small on the go treats, or you can invest in a popsicle tray to create full-size popsicles.
Blackberry and Grape:
There are only 2 ingredients, blackberries and grapes! Ensure that there are no stems on the grapes. Rinse the fruit and put it in a blender or food processor until smooth. Strain for juice or leave as is for more a textured popsicle! Freeze for 6 hours. Enjoy!
Dice up cantaloupe and put it in a food processor until it has a puree texture. Thinly slice up your strawberries. Pour some cantaloupe puree into the popsicle mold, then add strawberry slices. Then pour more cantaloupe puree over the strawberries to fill the popsicle mold. Freeze for at least 4 hours and then enjoy!
