Make Your Own Popsicles Materials:
Juice, soft drink mix (non-carbonated), yogurt, or pudding
Directions to Make Your Own Popsicles:
Carefully pour liquid into mold. Fill only as far as you want the first layer.
Do not insert the mold handles.
When the first layer is frozen, add the second layer of liquid.
Insert the mold handles and freeze again.
Remove from freezer and take out the handles.
Fill with remaining liquid and put the mold handles back in.
Remove finished Popsicles from the freezer and run the molds under warm water to loosen.
Popsicles should slide out.
You can add drops of food coloring to plain or vanilla yogurt to make fun layered frozen yogurt pops. Mix the yogurt and food coloring in a separate bowl and then add to the molds. Pudding freezes well. Layer different flavors and colors for a fun effect.
Find Popsicle molds at discount department stores. You can also use ice cube trays — just fill the tray, cover it in plastic wrap, then insert toothpicks or mini Popsicle sticks for handles.
Enjoy making your own popsicles this summer!
