Fruit Punch Infused Popsicles with Tampico

This post is sponsored by Tampico. All opinions are my own.

Tampico is planning an exciting refresh to its brand later this spring, so in honor of its near 30-year history, we’re taking a look back with them on the past few decades and reliving our favorite moments. Join in with the nostalgia and fun and let us know what games, TV shows, foods and more you loved from your childhood in the comments!

Valentine Inspired Fruit Punch Infused Popsicles with Tampico

There are so many things that I enjoy about being a mom. One of my favorites is sharing memories from my childhood with my children. When I was growing up, Saturday morning cartoons were a huge deal. Every other day of the week was busy with school and playing outside (which is also my children's favorite thing to do). It has been so cold here this winter, so we have been snuggling up on the couch more and streaming our favorite shows. I am a baby of the 80's and thanks to Netflix, we have been able to start introducing our children to the classics, such as Care Bears!

I decided to break out the Tampico, another classic “Splash From the Past,” that has been bringing delicious fruit juice drinks to kids (and moms) since 1989, and make some Fruit Punch Infused Popsicles to share with my kiddos while we watched the multi-colored bears that bring back so many wonderful memories from my childhood.

These popsicles are super easy to make. I love that they reminded me of the homemade popsicles my mom would make when I was growing up. My kids absolutely loved them and I love that they have real fruit too.

 What You Need:
  •  1 1/2 cup Tampico
  •  1 cup Orange Juice
  •  3-4 frozen bananas
  •  popsicle maker (I have a Zoku Pop Maker)

So here's what you do:
Blend everything in a blender until a nice puree. Pour in popsicle maker and wait to freeze.

But the fun doesn't stop there, Tampico has so many different flavors to choose from so you could make all different types of popsicles, cupcakes, or even just enjoy it as a refreshing drink while you are enjoying time with your family.

What kind of activities or shows from your childhood do you like to share with your kids? What do you think of Tampico? What do you think of our popsicle recipe? Let me know in the comments if you try it!
