I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for OshKosh B’Gosh. I received an OshKosh B’Gosh gift card to facilitate my post and a promotional item to thank me for my participation. #HelloSummerFun
It’s been raining like crazy here in Texas, but we’re finally seeing lots of sunshine and feeling the heat! The kiddos have been begging to hit the pool – so why not kick off the season with a fun pool party? And what’s a pool party without some healthy summer snacks? We whipped up a bunch of these Homemade Fruit and Yogurt Popsicles, and the kids (and adults) loved them!
Since popsicles take a bit to freeze, we took care of getting them in the molds and popping them in the freezer first!
- Fresh fruit of choice (strawberries, mango, banana, oranges, watermelon, etc.)
- Yogurt of choice (we prefer vanilla)
You’ll also need a blender and popsicle molds or ice trays.
- Take turns blending each type of fruit with some of the yogurt, then place in a container while you do another fruit type!
- Once you’ve got all of your fruits, take turns scooping or pouring them into the molds. Create fun colored rows by mixing them up! Combine the flavors for something new and fun.
- Pop them in the freezer and let them get solid!
Once we were done with our popsicle prep, we made sure to get all our gear in order! Since my kids seemed to shoot up like beanstalks over the past year, we needed to grab some new swim stuff before we could enjoy our pool time!
Of course I knew to swing by OshKosh B’Gosh to get everything we needed, and was thrilled to find everything at such great prices – with four kids, outfitting them for summer can really add up! You can find one nearby you using their Store Locator.
And guess what? They have a coupon so you can save even more money! Woot woot!
We got the kids their swimsuits (tops AND bottoms, since I worry about the boys’ backs in the summer sun), hats, sunglasses, and even some cover ups!
I love the super bright colors OshKosh has, and the range of products in sizes 0-12 for both boys and girls! The boys think they’re great, and I love that it makes them easier to spot when we’re at the pool. You can tell what their favorite colors are by their suit choices – orange and green for the twins, and blue for my girl! Since the twins have hand-me-down suits to pass on to our youngest, we just got him a hat and sunglasses.
Once our fruit popsicles were ready, they pulled on their new tanks from OshKosh so we could enjoy the frozen treat!
They seriously LOVED the flavors of these, and I loved that it was a healthy snack option for them! Plus they look colorful and summery with all the stripes of fruity colors!
I was a little surprised when most of them chose banana as their favorite of the flavors. I thought the strawberry was the best – but all around they were so sweet, tangy and refreshing all at the same time!
