Summer Lovin'

I have been on a summer lovin' high the past few days with the gorgeous weather! After the rainy June we have had I'm appreciating it even more. The pool water was a little cold today and the baby made sure I knew he felt the same by kicking me like crazy. After some rays and exercise I was in the mood for something refreshing. The cure to my craving? Berry popsicles! These sweet treats are refreshing, easy, and a good way to get your fruits in for the day. With the fourth coming up next week I may be getting into the festive spirt and make some red (strawberry) and blue (blueberry) ones.

Hope you enjoy the recipe
