200+ DIY POPSICLE RECIPES

I am pretty obsessive with food. Obsessive is the second cousin to compulsive. Each one has its own foibles and both are equally annoying to the people closest to you.  By obsessive, I mean that I get stuck on a certain type of food and will want to eat it every.single.day.  For the last month it's been a trifecta--chips, salsa and guacamole--homemade of course. I finally had to quit cold turkey after my husband gave me this "compliment", words spilled from his mouth that no woman ever wants to hear--"Wow hon, your a@! looks great in that skirt, it's so high (not bad) and wide."  And wide?!  Is he crazy?  I badgered him for about 48 hours on exactly what did that mean? I shudder.  Needless to say I am off the chips and guac. I am still obsessed with salsa. My new food obsession happened on a whim.  I was at the grocery store picking up ice cream for my husband and saw a box of natural coconut pops, I threw them in my basket and thought nothing of them; in fact they sat in my freezer for a whole week (unfathomable now).  When I did take that first bite one blisteringly hot evening, my tastebuds danced then sang 'hallejullah', my brain quickly added 'obsession no. 1, 346, 187' to the long food list. I went through the box as quickly as I had bought them, at 120 calories I wasn't doing too wrong by my 'wide' behind, but my miniscule budget was taking a hit.  That's when I decided to see if I could make my own but better. I do afterall have about 40 pounds of frozen strawberries from our berry picking foray. I did a quick search and gasped with delight when I saw that Ez's Creature Comforts blog just did a popsicle round-up, I love when the interwebs read my mind. 

You'll need to get a mold and wooden sticks (some molds come with built-in sticks). You can also make these in papercups (if a mold is too much of an investment for a one or two time endeavor). Gather your ingredients and get to freezing! Have a great weekend! I am hoping to feed my obsession this weekend and try my hand with the frozen pop realm. I will leave you with some Popsicle recipes for inspiration:

Hah! He's on time out Kathy. Toi the beauty of popsicles is you can make some healthy ones, but the bad ones do seem so awesome;)
