Popsicles are a fun treat to eat make. Making your own popsicles is easy and allows you to create healthier options. This page contains homemade popsicle recipes.
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. There was no calories or artificial sweeteners. The kids loved it. They keep asking when I am going to make more!

I would love a recipe to make a tasty sugar free Popsicle or frozen ice bar.

I saw a photograph of this in an online search. I think this is a wonderful way to get children eating more fruit and I can make these with sugar-free Jelly granules as I am a diabetic. 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!

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.
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.

Shake Jello, Kool-Aid, sugar, and hot water to mix. Add cold water and shake. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
This is a tasty blend of fruit, nuts and spices.
Recipes for making popsicles using Kook-Aid.
Here is an easy and inexpensive cold treat to make for your kids. Even the big kids, namely me, like them on hot summer days.
Kids love these!
Homemade popsicles made from fruit juice are much more economical and healthier than pops bought from the store. And if you are just a little bit creative, you can make layers, and combinations that are fun for your kids.
