Nutritious, refreshing and very easy to make, Oatmeal and Strawberry Popsicles, everyone in the family will love them. Summer, here we come!
Isn't this Oatmeal and Strawberry Popsicle the perfect summer treat? Yes, it is.
When I was a kid I used to drink a strawberry and oatmeal drink that was very popular in the DR. I am not even sure if it is still sold, but I figured I could not only make my own, but make it into something my daughter would love. And she does.
This is almost breakfast-worthy, which makes it a great little treat for fuzzy kids, and a way to make them eat a healthy snack, and even come back for more. I'll be making these more often, possibly trying it with other berries and stone fruits (cherries sounds like a winner too).
And you, what are you doing this summer?
