Don’t pay the price for commercial popsicles. Turn fresh fruit and honey into easy homemade ice pops. Be sure to read this popsicle tutorial to make it easy.

Popsicles are probably pretty cheap as far as things go. With a coupon, you can probably get them for a song. But, if you’ve read the ingredients label, you know that they are far from healthy. You might as well feed your kids water and corn syrup with a little food coloring thrown in for good measure.

Homemade ice pops, on the other hand, are pretty easy to make, plus, they’re healthier, too.

I’ve been experimenting with different mixtures of fruit and honey to make our own popsicles. With sweet, ripe fruit, you don’t need to add much more. I even let the kids eat them for breakfast!

You can use whatever ripe fruit you have on hand. Simply sweeten to taste with honey. You can even layer the mixture with yogurt if you like. Check out this post on how to make homemade popsicles for easy tips and things to avoid.
