If you don't want to buy pre-made popsicle molds, you can make your own. Just buy a bag of wax Dixie cups, pour the fruit concoction into those and insert a popsicle stick. You knew those little sticks had a purpose other than school art projects, right? The fruit chunks should help to hold it up. When the 3 hours of freezing are finished, tear the cup away from the frozen treat. Make sure your kids eat them fast, though, because they can melt!
