- Use popsicle sticks and paper cups instead of the fancy popsicle molds to keep things simple and easy.
- Most popsicles will freeze within 2-3 hours so there is no need to plan or prepare too far in advance.
- Run the popsicle mold (or paper cup) under hot tap water for about 10-15 seconds to loosen the mold and have the popsicle pop right out.
