It is just about time for a 3 day weekend to begin! What are you going to do with that extra day? we suggest making your very own frozen treats to enjoy while you watch the fireworks or during the rest of your weekend! You can go with a healthy Popsicle complete with fruit or even a tea with fruit puree! Or… go with something with a little more oomph! Bake some home-made cookies and slather ice cream between two for a home-made ice cream sandwich! We know which one you want to make now. But just so you have options, below you will find pins of the fruity, flavorful frozen variety.
They each have a very unique personality so what does your choice say about you?
Patriotic Iced Tea
This is for the athletic and health conscious celebrator. Maybe you’re running in a holiday race or going on a hike? You know all the benefits of tea and you’re more than likely going to opt for a green tea for all those anti-oxidants. Then add your fruit puree and you are not only getting a serving of fruit but also staying hydrated!
Vegan Frozen Fruit Cup
Red White and Blueberry Popsicle
This is another healthy choice. Good for the kids who might also have that cupcake later in the day. Let them and yourself cool off with a healthier icy pop rather than a store-bought one filled with sugar!
Fruit Push Pop
Who doesn’t love a push pop? Especially one that has so many good ingredients in it. This is perfect for the beach goers. It will last in the cooler with ice just long enough in the car and be ready to eat easily when you have your blanket laid on the sand. The recipe suggests to buy 100% juice for this pop so that it stay healthy. You also add raspberries, strawberries, and bananas. You could eat this for breakfast right?
These are for the nostalgic. You want that taste and visual of the frozen pop you ate as a kid. You can’t get any more patriotic by having a blue tongue right? Nothing else will do for you, you are a purist and you have to celebrate right.
This is the vortex of the frozen treats. On one hand you are such a goody, opting to eat an actually fruit in its true form! But then again you did dip it in chocolate and had to add the sprinkles to make it patriotic. It is still probably one of the healthiest options. You might just be someone who needs a chocolate fix and a frozen banana does disguise itself very well, you would almost think it’s ice cream!

S’mores Frozen Pop
