The Season of Frozen Pops Arrives

Silicone Popsicle MoldsMy children like ice. Frozen pops. Ice in drinks. Ice in bags. Re-freezable bags of rice or goo. Ice straight on hot cheeks. Are other children like this? They spend all summer looking through the freezer for something cold.

Finally tonight, after snow and hail and cold last week, it feels like summer. Spring must have been over the weekend. Tonight as I write, the golden sunset is streaming in while the children play outside with the neighbors, the dog is running in circles with her best canine girlfriend, and everyone is asking for popsicles. The popsicle request tells me it is summer.

How do I satisfy this request without buying high-fructose corn pops on a throwaway stick?

Freeze your own popsicles, and you can make them nutritious and delicious. We freeze anything.

Keep your children cool this summer by filling up reusable pop molds. Juice, yogurt, and berries are our favorites, and we make homemade ice cream for holidays and special occasions.
