something to do: make popsicles


Wild-Haired Toddler wants YOU! To make popsicles.

We’ve been on a popsicle making kick all summer. I suspect my kids would willingly live on nothing but popsicles if given the opportunity, but we don’t have that many popsicle molds.

We could start supplementing with other popsicle receptacles. Cups with popsicle sticks. Cups with small spoons for sticks. Yogurt frozen in individual serving cups. I am quickly going to run out of cups, in this scenario.

You surely do not need me to tell you how to make popsicles, but apparently I am going to anyway? Because I am helpful like that.

1. Start with liquid and/or squishy foods. Juice, yogurt, coconut milk, mashed banana, fruit that’s been through the blender. Whatever. Put it in popsicle molds. (OR CUPS! Maybe.) Freeze.

2. Eat.

3. Try in vain to wash chocolate-berry-banana drips out of tee shirts.

4. Resign yourself to popsicle stain.

5. Hit up the resale shop for more tee shirts.

6. Make more popsicles.

Hmm. Okay, now I am seriously considering popsicle-as-breakfast-food. That could happen.
A couple of our favorite recipes:

Creamy Chocolate Fudgesicles (Fudgsicle? Fudgesicle? There is no way to spell that word that looks right.)

Tutti Frutti Chocolate Coconut Popsicles (With chocolate chips! As all foods should be.)

And also I have a wee little popsicle idea collection over here.

I also keep lots of food ideas over at Pinterest. We’re vegetarian, and some of us are gluten-free, so there are tons of veggie meals and alternative baking options on my boards.
