Homemade Popsicles

Popsicles for breakfast during a heat wave? Hey, we're not here to judge. We've got 21 creative recipes for cool treats, most of them made with real fruit.

Best for kids aged: Four and up

What you’ll need: To make the popsicles shown, you'll need kiwi, pineapple and honey

Directions: Blend an entire pineapple (cored and cut up) with 2 tablespoons of honey, and 2 kiwi (reserving 10 thin slices) in a food processor until you get a smooth consistency. Drop a kiwi slice into the bottom of your molds, and then pour the blended mixture over it. Freeze until hard -- and enjoy!

Why they’ll love it: Making your own means less sugar and fewer artificial ingredients -- which means they can have more!
