Popsicles: Not for Kids Only!
Alice Henneman, MS, RD, UNL Extension in Lancaster County
For quick and healthy snacks in reasonable portion sizes, try homemade popsicles. Just fill popsicle molds with your favorite concoction. To unmold, briefly hold base of mold under running water to loosen the edges. Enjoy!
Here are some easy ideas for fillers for popsicle molds:
1. 100% fruit juice (Orange, Apple, Pineapple, and Grape)
2. Instant pudding, any flavor. Make with skim milk according to package directions.
3. Your favorite smoothie recipe. Try our smoothie recipes in Recipe Central.
