By Andrea Cannon on 28 July 2016 0 comments

Whether you prefer pudding popsicles, smoothie or juice pops, or a completely unique combination, the options are limitless once you’ve purchased an ice pop mold. You can create your own popsicles in any flavor you like. You can even mix-and-match flavors to make everyone in your household happy.

By making your own healthy freeze pops at home, you can save money and get more use out of affordable juice, leftover yogurt or smoothies, and seasonal fruits. Along with being economical, they are also eco-friendly as they can be used again and again, and produce less waste. Homemade pops are only a fraction of the cost of store-bought popsicles, and you can add whatever you like without having to worry about looking at the ingredient list.

What Is a Popsicle Mold?

A popsicle mold is a kitchen accessory that can be filled with liquid and frozen to make popsicles and pudding pops right from your freezer. Making your own healthy popsicles can be the perfect treat on a hot day. You can even add alcohol to make adult pops for your next pool party. Once you’ve removed the mold from the freezer, consider running it under lukewarm water to easily loosen the pop inside.
