Raspberry Popsicles and Some Fun News :)

5 year-old, Paige, with her popsicle
I was at the library the other day getting my kids some books, and I saw a book on display
called Ice Pop Joy by Anni Daulter.  To my surprise, the recipes were whole food!  So I took it home, excited to try some new recipes.  A couple of days later, my daughter asked if we could make popsicles, and she flipped through the pages looking for something that looked good.  Only problem was, I didn't have the exact ingredients for the popsicles she wanted to make.  So, we improvised and it ended up turning out great!  My kids and I were very happy with our new recipe for Raspberry popsicles :)

Raspberry Popsicles

1.5 cups fresh raspberries
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1 banana
2 tbsp. raw honey
1/2 squirt of liquid stevia (unflavored)
1/2 cup coconut milk

Combine ingredients in blender and puree until smooth.  Pour into popsicle mold and freeze until solid.

Makes about 6 (4-ounce) popsicles.

In other news....We are going to be adding a new addition to our family in August!  I am about 29 weeks prego with my fourth kid.  It's a boy, so my oldest - 7 year old Talbot - is really excited to finally have a brother :)
This time around we have decided to have the baby at a birthing center, which I've never done before, so I'm anxious to see if I like the difference :) I will definitely be filling all of you in when the time comes.  So far, the midwives have been great during prenatal visits. 
Happy Summer!
Jenny :)
