Kids in the Kitchen: Sour Apple Popsicles

Fall here in Texas is hit or miss.


Sure we defiantly have (extremely) cooler nights and days compared to the summer, but some years you can wear shorts straight up till Christmas.

Like when the rest of the fall loving world is raking leaves and wearing boots and sweaters.

And even though I will force fall until my cheeks are rosy, the reality is that we will have 70-80 degree temps for weeks, possibly months.

 
So what do you do when you want to eat the flavors of fall but really need something cold and refreshing to cool off with?

You combine the two and make apple popsicles!

I loved how refreshing these are! Slightly tart from the lemonade, but totally applelicious! These are perfect if you live in a state where the fall includes a possible afternoon sweat!

PS: They are healthy too! Betcha you and/or your kids would never know though!
