Summertime is all about late night visits to the ice cream parlor, poolside popsicles, and cool frozen treats to help relieve the heat. So many of the store bought treats are laden with artificial flavors and sweeteners. These DIY popsicles have no added sugar and take advantage of summer’s sweet bountiful fruit.
