A Recipe for the Kids Today - Popsicles!

An easy treat for the kids - these were a huge hit with the kids around the pool last weekend.  A great way to cool off and give them a little nourishment when they are too busy to take the time to eat much.

You need 1 can of strawberry banana nectar - its in a little pop can size container with a pop top.  I usually find it in the juice section on a bottom shelf near the pineapple juice or in the Mexican specialty section.  Very cheap and a great secret add-in to any punch.  You'll also need about 2 cups of orange juice, about 4 cups of sugar-free apple juice, popsicle sticks, and .5 oz plastic cups (the bathroom size mini cups).

Combine the nectar and 2 juices in a large pitcher and mix.  Next take a large baking sheet and line up the cups on the sheet.  Carefully pour the juice into the cups filling to 1/4 inch below the rim.  Place a popsicle stick in each cup.  Stick the baking sheet into the freezer for at least 3 hours or until popsicles are frozen solid.  They will slide right out of the cups.  Makes about 35-40 popsicles.
