Have Popsicle Mold, Will Chill
Every summer evening, my mother would fill a popsicle mold with Kool Aid and stick it in the freezer, the next afternoon we'd have a delicious frozen treat.
My mom's popsicle mold lasted for years, and my brothers and sisters and I looked forward to our cool snack every afternoon. In fact, those frozen popsicles made for some favorite family memories. Fortunately for all of us, popsicle molds are now easy to find.
Here are a few places to get popsicle molds -- from the old-fashioned plastic kind to the newer non-stick silicone versions. You certainly don't need to use Kool-Aid -- you can use healthier options such as orange juice, or one of your favorite sugarless mixes.
