When I was a kid, my mother would make her own popsicles using paper cups and wooden sticks. She’d freeze fruit juice or pudding to make inexpensive treats. Today, you can find popsicle molds in all shapes and sizes and the ingredients to use are endless.

In just a few minutes and a little freezer time, you have healthy, tasty treats for days.
