Homemade Popsicles

Homemade Popsicles are so easy and you really don't even need to buy those Popsicle molds that are on the market today. All you really need is what I have below.
You Will Need
Ice Cube Tray
Drink of your choice

Start by preparing the drink mix as usual. This is Pink Lemonade.

Pour the drink mix into the ice cube tray.

Get them all full to the top.

Cover with foil.

This picture isn't very clear because the lighting was bad, but what you need to do next is stick the toothpicks in each cube holder. You can make sure of where you are sticking it by peeling up the foil and looking to see where the partitions are in the tray.
You will then stick the tray in the freezer and wait.
And wait.
And wait.
My freezer takes about 3 hours to fully freeze the pops.
When you take the tray out, carefully remove the foil so none sticks to the Popsicle.
Crack the tray as if you were just removing ice cubes and carefully dislodge the Popsicle.
Here is your finished product. Yes, they are small, but they are the perfect size for small children and they are sugar free and preservative free so you can have as many as you like!

You can use any kind of liquid you want in these Popsicles. Orange juice, grape juice, any drink mix - the possibilities are endless.
Also, you could skip the toothpicks and just make, for instance raspberry lemonade ice cubes and drop them in your Sprite [or whatever you drink] for extra flavoring!
