    Default Homemade popsicles

    I bought some cute popsicle molds this weekend. They have a straw in
    the base so kids can slurp up the juice as the popsicle melts.

    Our first batch -- fruit cocktail popsicles. It's simply canned
    fruit cocktail, juice and all, frozen in popsicle molds. My four year
    old sons love to help in the kitchen, so they had fun spooning the
    fruit into the molds. The popsicles turned out very pretty -- jewel
    like -- and refreshing.

    I don't get it - a straw in the base to slurp up juice as it melts?
    You don't eat Popsicles when they're still in the molds - is the
    holder where the straw is fastened a cup, so melted stuff can collect
    there?

    That's about right. Look on the right sidebar of this site; this is
    similar to the mold I have.

    babysit the nephews, thanks!

    Thanks for the reminder. We don't have any of the moulds in the house
    but will look to get some. Used to freeze all sorts of fruit juices but
    the fruit cocktail thing sound nice too.

    Today's popsicles:

    applesauce -- straight from the jar into the molds

    The applesauce popsicles are sweet and refreshing -- a good cold fruit
    snack for the afternoon. My boys like these a lot.

    And to think I just bought a large bundle of sugar free icy pops for
    $2.50 in prep for the summer... sigh. Had I waited till the next grocery
    trip, I would have got the molds. Probably the silly ones that dribble
    out of the straw holder.

    Today's popsicles:

    a package of orange jello disolved in a cup of boiling water
    a can of frozen orange juice
    a quart of vanilla yogurt
    enough water to make two quarts

    We will definitely make these again. They are creamy and taste like
    dreamsicles.

    You lost me at the jello LOL. Can't stand the stuff, although Maman
    likes it.

    The latest batches of popsicles:

    Orange kool-aid

    Large box of strawberry Jello dissolved in boiling water, a quart of
    vanilla yogurt, enough water to make two quarts. These are very
    good. The Jello keeps the drips away.
