Children love popsicles! I mean love them! Shucks, so do adults who am I kidding? Growing up I have fond memories of the red, white and blue popsicles. Yes, the ones loaded with artificial flavors and dyes! Anni Daulter recently came out with a beautifully photographed book with healthy, easy and delicious popsicles you can make from home called, Ice Pop Joy. So you can now enjoy popsicles without all of those nasty dyes and artificial flavors!
What I love best about this book beyond the simple recipes would be the pictures of the pops and the children enjoying them. When I make something I like to see if it looks the way the cookbook says it should like and with Ice Pop Joy and can definitely see if the recipe turns out or at least resembles the photo!
From chilling out on a hot summer day with a healthy and nutritious popsicle made from scratch without those nasty dyes and artificial flavors to a breakfast pop – your kids will be sure to grin from ear to ear! Yes, I said breakfast pop! That’s what Anni does, she gets creative and thinks of fun and new ways to use foods that are in season, good for the family, and that our kids (big and little) will be sure to enjoy!
So give Ice Pop Joy and try and you’re family will be very happy you did! Yum!

I love popsicles! I’m going to have to check out this book-no more popsicles with artificial colors and dyes. Thanks for the review.
We make healthy popsicles all the time around here during the summer. Mostly I take leftover smoothie and pour it into popsicle molds. I do a lot of green smoothies, or add oatmeal or flax seed to them, so they’re pretty healthy and very easy to make.
Definitely on my to-do list for this summer. I’ll have to check out this book. Anyone have suggestions for a good popsicle mold?
I recommend the Zoku Quick Pop maker! I have a 4-year-old who does not like to wait for hours for a homemade popsicle and this makes them in about 5 minutes.
