Food – Super Cool Popsicles for This Summer

 

Homemade ice cream can be a pain in the neck, what with the bowl-freezing and the custard-cooking, but popsicles? You have NO excuse not to make popsicles. Just buy a mold (or rig up some Dixie cups), pour in various liquids that taste good, and wait for the magic to happen.

Here are some recipes to get you started on the path to pop stardom (SORRY).
