Officially Spring is over, and Summer is here! ☀️😎⛱🕶
Saying goodbye to spring with beautiful spring colors and welcoming summer with some summer vibes!😃
Though it’s not that hot here in California, days are warmer and longer for all sorts of summer activities!
Who doesn’t like to have one of these popsicles on hot summer days? It’s healthier and tasty, and on top, it has no added refine sugar other than honey!
Dragon fruit is a tropical fruit and native to Mexico. Chose it for its vibrant color and its rich nutrients. It has several varieties,, and I chose the red pulp black seed one and the frozen cubed ones.
Making popsicles is fairly easy and quick. And the beauty of homemade is, you can control the sugar level and the ingredients.
