Make Yourself - Popsicles

Instead of buying Popsicles in the store, make your own! Obviously, it will save you money, but it also gives you the ability to control what and how much goes in them (Organic, sugar, etc.). Not to mention, it is a good way to keep from wasting food. In our house, wasting fruit is a big problem, since the fruit sits in drawers in the fridge, so it's "out of site, out of mind". This way, if I realize something is going to go bad before we can eat all of it, I can just make up some pops!

Go read this great post with some tips and also some interesting ideas to help you get started and think out of the box in terms of ingredients.

Green Factor:

  • Can be made with organic produce.
  • Making them yourself cuts out all the unnecessary fillers.
  • You can control how much sugar (if any) goes in them resulting in a healthier treat.

Saving Green:

  • Cheaper to make yourself then buy pre-made.
