Nothing captures the true essence of summer better than sitting on the front porch with a homemade, nutrient-packed popsicle in hand. It is best experienced while leisurely soaking in the warm rays of the sun with toes wiggling in the grass, messy faces, and not a care in the world. After a morning of hard play in the sandbox or a treasure hunt for rocks and sticks, my preschooler adores sitting down for a soothing, cooling popsicle as a snack or after-lunch treat.
