As it gets hotter outside, I like to have frozen treats - but a lot of times they are loaded w/ fat and/or sugar...so I decided to freeze OJ... I bought the kiddie popsicle forms and filled 'em and froze 'em.... Simple, delicious, and even helps my Folate totals ;-)

I stock up my freezer with sugar free popsicles a Edy's Fruit bars at only 25 and 80 calories respectively I never feel bad about having one after dinner. It's a yummy healthy snack, and it helps curb any sweet cravings I may be having. Also it's a nice treat to look forward to for a day well done.
My favorite flavor for the popsicles is Raspberry and for the fruit bars I recommend Strawberry
Instead of buying pricey Popsicles - make your own out of juice. You can buy the molds in various sizes and use them over and over. Instead of paying $2.69 for 6 popsicles, you can buy a half gallon of OJ for $1.89 ( depending on the prices in your area) and make 2- 3 times that amount of pops.
If you buy one box of popsicles a week, for the summer ( May June, July, August) you could save about half the price or more. I got my popsicle molds at the dollar store.
