Homemade Popsicles

One of the best things about warmer weather: Homemade Popsicles. Totally delicious and, if you do them right, nutritious too. And they couldn't be easier to make.

A few that we like around our house:

Blueberry, banana & apple pops: Blend together (ratio: 1 banana/2 cups blueberries/2 cups apple juice); freeze.

Pineapple, strawberry pops: Blend together equal parts until smooth; freeze. (Also, plain blended strawberries with a little sugar sprinkled in make good ones, too!)

Homemade lemonade pops. (Try this homemade lemonade recipe!

I also found a recipe over at ChowMama that I can't wait to try: Grapefruit Lime Cilantro Popsicles!

I want to make some of these but I'm not sure what to freeze them in. We used to just use paper cups but I wonder if something else would be better. What do you use?

Ruth, I've found Tovolo's popsicle molds to be really good. (You can find them on Amazon. They're also BPA free, which is a nice bonus.

My kids can't wait to make their own popsicles this summer. Now we just need to wait for the weather to warm up :) !!
