Yo-Pops

Who doesn't love a cold, creamy treat on a hot day? Did you know the average American eats 48 pints of ice cream in one year?! That's a lot of calories and extra sugar! You can still have that cold, creamy treat but in a healthier way with these Yo-Pops! Make these for your family all spring and summer and be happy knowing you are serving them a healthy snack! As always, I suggest organic ingredients when at all possible.
