Summer Popsicles



Have a popsicle party! Nothing says summer like a good fruity popsicle, and it's so cute too!

What once used to be a package of white paper-wrapped frozen treats in various colors rather than flavors has now exploded into gourmet goodness that is a popsicle. Gone are the days of "would you like red or purple?" and trying to determine if the popsicle inside the wrapper was orange or red (I could never tell really) or if you wanted a single one and share with someone or if you were going to be greedy and eat both.
Once I tasted a paleta from Las Paletas in Nashville, I knew my life had changed. I love ice cream and yogurt, but now popsicles are equally important and tasty. It's also a lot easier to be healthy when making your own popsicles. It can be as simple as cutting up your favorite fruits with the fruit juice and pouring it into a mold. The hardest part is being patient enough to let it freeze.



Get creative with your flavors! If you're pregnant and really do like pickles and ice cream, make it into a popsicle!

I bought the Pops! book last year with the intention of making my own popsicles but so far I've only made two. There are so many I want to make that I can't decide!



Apparently this is one of the ultimate popsicle makers. I've seen it in person and it's glorious. I just might have to own one someday.

I used ice trays once for popsicle bites and truly believe anything around your house, within reason, can be a popsicle mold. However, these are just so adorable that it makes the drippage that much more fun.
