Here is a fast and easy popsicle recipe that has been a family favorite for years. They have a nice amount of fiber and very little sugar, but still taste so sweet and are virtually fat free. I love serving these when we have friends come over with their kids because I know they are getting a yummy and healthy treat. You can find the popsicle molds I used in markets, Bed Bath & Beyond, and Target; the dollar stores carry them as well. I stock up on them whenever I can because they cost as little as two dollars for a set of four. I hope your family loves these ice pops as much as mine does. Have a great weekend.
