I remember as kids my mom owned two Tupperware Popsicle molds (they were a set of 8 each mold) and she would make us popsicles in the supper. They were always softer and tasty!
I purchased some used Tupperware molds from a lady last summer (like my mom's old ones) and also purchased the newer Tupperware molds at a party.
You can now purchase the Mickey Mouse Popsicle Mold from Tupperware. They are cute too!

So after a trip to Winners today I could not resist purchasing another set of Popsicle molds... They were just too cute, and cheap, to pass up! I thought my kids would love eating a Popsicle from them and to be honest, the handle for the base is a little more toddler friendly than the Tupperware ones.
See! Aren't they fun and cute!! The wide part of the base is not attached and works as a base for freezing the popsicles so they are sturdy. I love it!

So I started looking up some recipes. My mom used to use a Jello/Kool-aid recipe, but I don't actually have any Kool-Aid since I try to stick to natural juice, not sugar ones... lets face it, my kids do not need any help in the energy department. :)

For this treat I may let that slide... and do some experimenting.
