Freshly Squeezed Orange Popsicles
Go get some oranges and a few fun containers and make a delicious summer treat.
A few days ago, after juicing some oranges using Little Bit's juicer, I started thinking about how yummy it would be to freeze some OJ and make popsicles.
Then....I got this in the mail...
and, lo and behold, there was a whole article on making your own popsicle molds. While we didn't cast our own molds out of silicone, we did follow the mag's suggestion to use shot glasses (or other containers with interesting shapes) for freezing the juice.
We started from scratch and let Little Bit do some juicin'!
Then she did much of the pouring as well. Undoubtedly this was her favorite part...she loves to pour.
Next, I secured the popsicle sticks in place by taping toothpicks on either side of the sticks and then securing them to the glasses.
After just a couple of hours in the freezer (i.e. one toddler nap) they were ready for consumption.
I'll have to agree with her. They were quite tasty! We only used orange juice in our popsicles, but you could easily change it up by adding yogurt or combining different fruit juices.
Have fun and let me know if you try it...I'd love to see what cool shapes others can find!
