When I was growing up my mom had a popsicle mold. She kept it pretty simple with juices - orange mostly. So when I saw a popsicle mold at K-Mart for $2.99 I grabbed it. I figured we'd just do juice popsicles instead of the long, skinny sugar-pops all summer.
But my imagination got the best of me.
Yes, we've done juice. We've also done some super-watered, nearly-sugarless Kool-Aid. Ugh. I hate having that in the house --- I need to get rid of it. We've also done lemonade.
But more recently we've tried:
Making extra smoothie in the morning and freezing what's left
Plain, non-fat yogurt (no complaints, surprising....)
Banana slices (a banana that had brown spots) with juice
Pineapple (from a can) pureed in the blender (yummo!)
Have you got some tried-and-true ideas? I hesitate to use up all our juice - that's stuff's expensive! And Kool-Aid is disturbingly cheap. So I need some good, inexpensive ideas in my repertoire so I can stay ahead of the sugar-comas. :)
