Feeding Your Family From The Farmers Market: Red, White and Blueberry Coconut Popsicles

During the dog days of summer, plenty of people are looking for any way to cool off.

Grabbing a popsicle can be a great way to do that, but many of them are loaded with sugar.

The good news is, they don’t have to be.

Michelle Dunaway met up with Grace Derocha, a registered dietitian with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, at the Sara Hardy Farmers Market earlier this month and came up with a fun ice pop recipe your kids are sure to love.

Red, White and Blue-Berry Coconut Popsicles
