This is a wonderful, creamy treat for the entire family. After making this recipe, you won't need to buy these pops at the market anymore, especially since these take only minutes to make. I love this healthy recipe, especially since they remind me of having creamsicles as a child. I loved them then and I love them even more now knowing I can make them with better ingredients for my family. Please give this a try this weekend and let me know what you think. Enjoy.
