      I used to make homemade popsicles with a mold and Kool-aid. Very yummy and refreshing. Now I want to look into some healthier options. Great lens.

      I use to make them when my kids were younger, I used fruit juice to make them. I never thought of doing something as elaborate as the ones you have here. When Grandkids arrive, I will be able to spoil them. Some great ideas here, thank you.
