At the grocery store I saw the Del Monte Fruit Chillers in the canned fruit section. It's a base of pear with added sugar, flavors, pectin, and colors. A more healthy option but I thought I could do better. Especially since the canned fruit in 100% juice next to it is only $1. I grabbed some to see what I could come up with.
I offered my 4yo nephew a popsicle, and he said "I want a red one". I answered "Well, they're kind of red." Then he asked me where the stick was. After he slurped it down, he did NOT ask me where the extra sugar and fake colors were! All the kids loved their fruit chillers, and they got a good snack while getting cooled off.
