Sweet Treats

Frozen banana's were my favorite county fair treat when i was a kid. Every summer we went to the fair and that was the one time a year i could get this yummy treat. I would never have thought to make it at home, but i was inspired.

I am always looking for ice pop recipes or something frozen that i can give the kids that is more than just sugar water...so that when i send them outside right after getting sun screened on a hot day, those frozen treats keep them in the shade long enough for it to soak in. I found this. They are so simple, just green and red grapes on lollipop sticks, freeze and enjoy!
I love a treat that you don't ever have to say no to. Why would i? I try to make it a habit to not say no to any requests for fruits or vegetables.The kids tried the grape pops. They were not sure what to make of this fruit that they love, but frozen. I think they thought that it was a little strange.

We love frozen grapes! It's been a while since I've done bananas--but yours are inspiring. Who doesn't love sprinkles?!

We have been having frozen grapes every afternoon--they're great! Those bananas look amazing.

I'm glad you liked the zucchini casserole--yes, I think about half the cheese might be just right. I have another one I'll be posting soon too. It's already lighted (it's a Cooking Light).

I've always enjoyed the coolness of the frozen grapes although I haven't had any yet this summer. I really like the idea of putting them on the sticks. Eye appeal!

I have a couple of goodies for you Leslie!
