making popsicles

Buying boxes of popsicles are very expensive (and not especially healthy) and my little one is addicted to "Eis". He wants one literally 10 times a day. I was hoping to make my own with apple juice or orange juice but I haven't been able to find those typical plastic forms to make them. I asked at ikea and I've checked the local supermarkets with no luck. Anyone have any idea where I can buy them? Thanks

Re: making popsicles

None at Ikea? About a month or so ago, I found a six-popsicle mold with base, molds, and sticks at my local Ikea (Aubonne). Perhaps you might check at a different Ikea if there is another one convenient to your location? Or perhaps the one you checked had not received their shipment yet as the popsicle mold is a more summery-type item?

Definitely Ikea. Less than 3 bucks.

I see your point, but please don't believe that your home-made popsicles will be much healthier than store-bought ones. More than two of them per day will be a dentist's delight.

Re: making popsicles

If you would like a "softer" version to Apple and orange juice then try one of the Nectar fruit drinks. My kids just love banana and peach with some small cut fruit pieces in it are a real treat. To keep the stickyness to a minimum I let them eat in the small baby pool and in the evening just let the water out. Keep an eye out for the wasps though!!

Re: making popsicles

Migros Budget brand do 24 (12 orange & 12 lemon) frozen lollies for CHF4.30. I believe Coop's budget brand has similar but it's been a while since I bought any from them.

If making your own, water down the juice so there's not so much sugar content. Or, if he's not worried about how they taste, just make them water ones only for him to suck on.

Thank you for your concern... but I really don't see much difference between giving him fresh pressed orange juice in a glass or it frozen on a stick. Have you ever read the ingredients on the store bought ones?!
