The Popsicle Molds Everyone Should Have


We bought these popsicle molds (using Swagbucks) off of Amazon recently.  I really like them!  I purchased them because they are made from polypropylene (a "safe" plastic that doesn't contain BPA), whereas I was unsure what type plastic my old set was made of.  Now that I have these, I think the design is genius!  My other popsicle mold was all one piece, so I had to run the whole thing under hot water in order to get one loose, melting the others.  I also had to wait until the popsicles were all gone before I could wash and refill the whole thing.  With this set I can use and refill them as needed.  The star base holds them upright in the freezer, but you can take them off of there once they are frozen if you need more space.  


So far I've just put juice in our popsicles, but this book looks like fun.  Maybe I should add in some pieces of fruit?  Do you have a favorite popsicle recipe?  Do I even have to mention that homemade popsicles are worlds better for you than store bought?!  Also, think of all that packaging waste you'll save from the landfills!  Yep, everyone should have a set of these.  :)

I purchased these popsicle molds myself and just wanted to let you know about them.  Its not a paid review.

  2. Oh man that book link has my mouth watering! We like to add 1/2 cup carrot puree with 1 1/2 c simply orange juice and about 1 tbsp white grape juice concentrate. DELICIOUS and healthy :)Thanks for another fun food post!

  5. Do you have an ice cream maker? I got one at the thrift store. Awesome! We've made bacon maple ice cream so far. But I'm going to surprise ManDork with beer sorbet soon.

  6. How exactly do those popsicle molds work? I can't quite figure it out. Also, if you are interested I have a book giveaway going on my blog right now for a book called Ice Pop Joy which is all about making homemade, healthy popsicles. Here is the link to the review: http://jewelsandtreasures.blogspot.com/2011/05/ice-pop-joy-review-giveaway.html

  8. Here's what we've tried recently. Mix two cups of yogurt with a can of frozen juice mix. We've tried oj and grape juice so far and both are yummy.
