A Quick Snack

I'm sure that popsicles for a snack is probably the furthest thing from most of your minds right now- considering it's JANUARY....unless of course you are under the age of 12- then it is a year round treat. BUT- I thought I'd share this anyway....
I picked up this grrrreat popsicle mold around the holidays for the kids.

We had another one, purchased years ago for cheap at Target- needless to say it didn't hold up.
There have been times that I have also seriously considered purchasing this bad boy- instant popsicles anyone???

But I decided it wasn't really worth the price.

The one I opted for is totally fabulous! Star shaped pops, sturdy plastic handles, fits in my freezer nicely-we couldn't be happier.
The possibilities are endless- the recent favorite is a frozen smoothie pop (the one in the picture is blended honey Greek yogurt (apx. 3/4 of a cup), 1/2 cup OJ, 1 ripe banana, 1 cup frozen mango chunks, 1/2 cup frozen pineapple chunks) DELICIOUS and nutritious.
We had a Tupperware brand pop mold as kids, my Mom would make frozen jello and frozen pudding pops which were always great, and even just frozen juice works too! YUM!!
