We've got a bunch of ice pop molds, I know some people use ice cube trays but I prefer a more substantial pop.
I started with plain juices. I prefer using all natural juices with no sugar added. I went with Simply Orange with Pineapple. Even Garrett loved the ice pops, he's also a big fruit eater so I decided to blend some raspberries, blackberries and strawberries with a little milk. It would have been good just as a smoothie but now it's in the fridge. My next ice pop flavor will be watermelon.
Making you own ice pops is really easy. It's just 3 basic steps.
1: Choose the fruit (or fruits) you want to use. Or skip this step and go to #2
2: Put in the blender with water, juice (for added flavor) or milk.
3: Blend and put in molds.
I like to let everything freeze overnight so I know it's frozen all the way through.
