Tuesday Tip

A quick, painless money saving tip every Tuesday

Hot weather the past few days has gotten me thinking about making homemade popsicles! This is such a quick and easy way to save money and make a healthy, yummy summer treat for your kids or yourself. All you need is a cheap set of plastic popsicle molds, like this set that I just bought at Ikea for $1.99. You can also use paper cups and disposable popsicle sticks, but I like the plastic ones because everything is reusable.

One of my favorite ingredients for popsicles is the juice from canned fruit. I always by the fruit in 100% fruit juice, so instead of letting it go to waste, I make pineapple juice or apricot nectar popsicles that my daughter loves. You can of course use any other fruit juice as well. Also try making popsicles with Jello, yogurt, pudding, or lemonade. Yum!

  1. I make my own popsicles, too! Last year we had a watermelon that was really big and so I smashed it up and shoved it into the popsicle things. It worked really well! I also used the frozen watermelon slush in smoothies later on. Better than letting the watermelon go to waste! And it was yummy. Last year I got my popsicle molds from the dollar spot at Target. I hope they have them again this year because I think my old set is scattered to the wind!
