The process was super easy and the resulting mixture was finger licking good. I placed the pops in the freezer and anxiously waited for them to freeze. However, several hours later, I couldn't get the popsicles to come out of the molds. I ran the molds under warm water, but to no avail. It was horribly disappointing and I'm not sure what went wrong. Has this happened to you? What's your technique for unmolding popsicles?
This month, skip baking a key lime pie for these key lime pie popsicles. Trust me: not only will your house be cooler, but these ice pops are just as delicious as a piece of pie. This particular recipe is relatively easy; all you do is stir everything in a bowl and get your molds ready to freeze. I made mine extra-zesty, but feel free to alter the amount of lime juice and rind to suit your taste. Once your pops have frozen solid, give them a quick dip in crumbled graham crackers to complete the pie flavor. Enjoy each bite of these crunchy and creamy pops by reading more for the recipe.

On a warm day, nothing cools babe down better than frozen breast milk...on a stick! Momsicles, popsicles made from mother's milk, are an all natural treat and they soothe gum pain when a tot's first teeth start to cut through. Did you ever pump and freeze liquid gold into pops?
With only one month of berry season remaining, I've been buying strawberries and blueberries in flats. And while I do a pretty good job at finding ways to eat them all, sometimes there really is too much of a good thing. In the weeks that I have too many ripe berries, I freeze them to use later in the Fall and Winter, or make jam. Last week on an incredibly hot day, I experimented in the kitchen to make my own mixed berry yogurt frozen treats. This treat is sweet, creamy, and best of all, a healthy way to cool down this Summer.
Disclaimer: this is a very loose recipe — so loose that I can't even call it a recipe. I had a bunch of ripe berries that I blended with some nonfat Greek yogurt and sugar. The finished mixture was based strictly on personal taste. If you need a gauge, ask yourself if you'd enjoy drinking the mix on its own, much like a smoothie. If yes, freeze away! Pour the berry yogurt mixture into a clean ice cube tray, add some toothpicks and freeze. It doesn't have to stop there either. Since the first batch, I've experimented with different berry combos, and thrown in fresh mint and lemon juice too. Whatever the combo, this treat is a big hit in my house!
The hot months are finally here, so it's the perfect time to pull out those popsicle molds and get to work freezing a refreshing Summer treat. This three-layered popsicle recipe combines watermelon, lemon, and blueberry ices to create a pop that is both sweet and tart.
Although the recipe says to strain the pureed fruit mixtures, I wanted a little texture and left them unstrained. The layering process definitely takes time, but the final product is well worth it. To cool off this July, keep reading for the recipe.
