Sunny days call for cool treats, and Mom Tiger has you covered with a simple strawberry banana ice pop recipe!

All you need to whip up these summer snacks are bananas, strawberries and orange juice.

Invite your child to help count, measure and chop the ingredients. Next, blend it all together and pour your fruity concoction into a freezable container. You can use a muffin tin, an ice tray or popsicle molds.

Freeze your pops for a few hours and enjoy! Head to the PBS KIDS for Parents website for the full recipe.
