Cookie Cutters and Popsicles September 4, 2008

Another cute and easy idea from flip-flops & applesauce

 

 

At first I didn’t think I had any alphabet cookie cutters…

     

…but then I noticed that my candy cane very nicely doubles as a “J”!!!  What a great discovery!

 

This afternoon I decided to use up my slightly too soft honeydew melon and make my own popsicles…an idea I got from my mom (thanks Mom!)  I figured even though it’s September, popsicles are still allowed if the weather is over 100 degrees…

 

Blend all ingredients together (I used about 1/2 of the melon, a handful each of the raspberries and strawberries, and a few tablespoons of honey)

 

Pour into dixie cups (it made 12 cups).

 

Put into the freezer and freeze for about 20 minutes, or until a popsicle stick stands up straight in the middle of each cup.  Freeze for another hour or so until they’re set.  When you take them out to eat, let them sit for a few minutes and they will slide out of the cups easily.  Now that I’ve tasted one, I realized I forgot to add lemon or lime juice for extra flavor.  But for a healthy, all natural snack, I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were!

 

After one of these tasty (and healthy) treats, you’ll be ready to jam with your broom bass guitar too…
