I have been making a lot of popsicles lately and wanted to try something different. I thought that a Shirley Temple popsicle would be delicious. I used a naturally flavored carbonated water.

  2. pouring juice in mold
  3. Plop in a cherry or two.
  4. dropping cherries in mold
  5. Fill the rest of the mold with your carbonated water. Don't fill all the way, to make room for the mixture to expand while freezing.
  6. juice in mold
  7. Add your popsicle tops.
  8. tops on filled molds
  9. Freeze for a few hours until completely frozen.
  10. finished popsicle

Tip: Easy Homemade Popsicles

These are made from juice you've already paid for, and fairly healthy popsicles. I freeze the juice from canned fruit in popsicle molds. I also use the liquid that forms in a bowl of cut watermelon. My kids love them and they keep me from wasting the extra juices.

Tip: Whole Blueberry Water Pops for the Freezer

Whole Blueberry Water Pops for the Freezer

We have been eating those yummy jello cups you can buy at the grocery store that come in multi-packs. I have been reusing the little cups to make ice pops, and using the thousand and one pop sticks we have to make pops out of them.

I just fill the little emply jello cups with water and then plop a teaspoon or two or whole frozen blueberries. Then I plop a plastic stick in there and freeze. They have been a huge hit. They are the perfect pop container as the pop comes out easily. They are also easier to get out of the mold. I put the little plastic pop holders at a sideway angle so they won't pull out of the pop. We love it!

I have resigned myself to paying more for wholesome food. Although blueberries at first glance are expensive, they are awesome brain food.

I am going to make a big batch for myself and my nieces and nephews. I hope you enjoy making and more importantly, eating them!


    • 1 package of any flavor Jello
    • 1 cup of fruit
    • Popsicle molds


    Prepare the Jello according to the package. Cut the fruit into bite sized pieces and place into the mold. Fill with Jello in the liquid state. Place in freezer for at least four hours before devouring. Makes 6
