Homemade Popsicles

With summer weather starting to appear, popsicles will become more popular.  They are easy to make and by making your own, you can control ingredients and sugar. They also taste better since they are probably fresher than the ones you buy.

I blended vanilla yogurt and fresh strawberries in a blender and froze in molds.

Another tip I saw online is to freeze fresh orange juice in popsicle molds, you could also stir in lowfat vanilla Greek yogurt for a creamy treat.  Also, you can add fresh fruit to a mold and fill with coconut water.

You could also use chocolate soy milk or almond milk or add malt powder and chocolate syrup to vanilla milk to milk fudgesicles.

You can use almost any fruit or flavors you want. It is a great way for kids to make their own snacks and experiment with flavors.

I bought these molds at the dollar store.  You could also use Dixie cups and popsicle sticks.
