  • I love making homemade popsicles, too. They’re so much fun. Nate is still too small for them but the grown-ups at our house eat them shamelessly.

    Amy – You will be making them soon enough for Nate. Wait till he starts teething :) They’re perfect for sore gums!

    Exactly Caralyn! I also like them because there’s no need for cane sugar either – I find even “healthy” popsicles add sugar.

    Thanks for sharing my popsicles here, Maggie! :) I remember that post, when you chose me for Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger. I’m already planning to make some new frozen treats, like ice creams and sorbets – popsicles might be there in the mix, too!
