{Frozen Fridays} Popsicles

If you’ve been following Books n’ Cooks for a while, you know that over my past two pregnancies, I ate like a 6 year old during my first trimester – very little, mostly popsicles (or as I call them, ice pops) and my childhood favorites (bagel pizzas, peanut butter sandwiches, etc). It wasn’t a problem during my first pregnancy, but during my second, my daughter watched me eat ice pop after ice pop. She knew what it meant when the freezer opened and she heard the crinkle of a wrapper. She would come running to share whatever I opened. (I’m ashamed to say that I used to wait for her to go to bed so that I didn’t have to share.)

Now that my son is here, I’m eating a lot less ice pops, but we still have some in the house. It’s beautiful weather, so it’s a refreshing treat. And, I now have the energy – some days, anyway – to make my own. I recently made boozy Raspberry Sangria Popsicles (link below) for my hubby and I to enjoy after the little ones went to bed. That batch didn’t last long. Now I have to decide whether to make them again (they were a hit!), to try another boozy popsicle recipe, or to try out something my daughter can enjoy. What do you think?

  1. Since I don’t have the time or equipment for ice cream, we love ice pops this summer over here. You probably have all the stuff you need, but if you haven’t tried them yet, we are fans of these molds: http://smile.amazon.com/Zoku-ZK116-Round-Pop-Molds/dp/B00CDL36JQ/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1437231558&sr=1-1&keywords=zoku+round+pop+molds (Good size for toddlers and grownups alike, drip catcher, easy to get the pops out). Right now Izzy keeps demanding more of the banana/chocolate/pb/yogurt ones I tried out for her last week.

    1. Those are cute. I have two different sizes of molds, basically a single and a double, with features similar to yours. I can’t fill them fast enough!
