The temperature is rising, and it finally feels like summer. Nothing is more refreshing than an ice cold popsicle on a hot summer day. However, we can do without the high carbs and loads of sugar that comes along with the average popiscle sold at most groceries. Here at GreenLite we believe in taking health into our own hands, so we thought why not make our own GreenLite friendly summer treats!

These Popsicle molds are not only a great way to treat yourself to something refreshing and healthy, but could be a great summertime activity for you and your kids. Turn your favorite smoothy concoction into a frozen treat! Experiment with sugar-free Crystal Light, or sugar free jellos or puddings. (Stay posted for GreenLite blog posts of fun popsicle recipes)
These molds are available at Whole Foods, Crate and Barrel and good old Amazon.com and various other online retailers. Pick up your healthy popsicle supplies and your molds at your next grocery shopping trip to whole foods or have them delivered to your home with a few clicks of the mouse.
The durabilty and quality of these molds more than make up for the price which run around $12. Because they are crafted from insulated plastic, the molds won’t crack or break and will last for many summers to come.
The molds hold a total of 4 ounces and we recommend to fill these molds with 1 inches to spare at the top.
Overall, these pops provide a wonderful way to create GreenLite friendly desserts. Here are a few helpful tip when making your popsicle concoction:
#1. If you make your shake into a popicle, make it a little sweeter to taste before placing in the mold as the sweetness factor decreases when eaten frozen.
#2. Jello mix will hold their taste longer than a water based, juice mixes which become more icy and lose taste as you get towards the bottom of the pop.
#3. Avoid yogurt. It tends to separate into an ice mixture when frozen.
#4. Run the frozen mold under warm water and squeeze from the bottom of the mold as you pull from the top, and the popsicle will “pop” right out!
