I had every intention of making Pool Noodle Race Tracks with the kids this week but waited until the last minute to run to the store for the pool noodles. I assumed I would have no problem finding them but I was wrong. I found a sad amount of fall decorations lining the shelves as the summer stuff seemed to disappear overnight. It’s only August 1st and even though I know summer is more than half way over, I’m not yet ready to think about the fall.
So instead I picked up a few Popsicle molds from the dollar store. The weather has been hot, humid and rainy recently so homemade Popsicles are the perfect way to have fun and cool off while staying indoors. My culinary skills leave something to be desired so since there are a ton of delicious options already out there I decided to round up a list of the ones we will be trying. Hopefully they will inspire you as well!
*For the most part, we eat entirely dairy and soy free due to a milk-soy-protein intolerance (you can read more about there here) so any recipe that calls for milk or yogurt, we subbed in coconut yogurt or almond milk. I also avoided any chocolate based recipes since it would be harder to replicate dairy/soy free.
In no particular order, here are some tasty treats will be creating / enjoying this week…
And if I’m feeling really adventurous, we’ll attempt to recreate these…
These should keep us busy and cool for awhile! I hope your family has fun with them too.
