Ice Cream Pops For Homemade Dessert Lovers
Why spend so much money on buying expensive ice pop molds when you have empty containers? Start off with your ice pop liquid. It could be fruit juice or you could actually make an ice cream mixture. After pouring it out in the molds, cover it with aluminum foil. Now, use an old ice cream stick or ice pop stick and stick it right in the middle of the foil. Freeze it for a couple of hours and you would have ice pops that are healthy, homemade and inexpensive.
