(Or fill ice pop molds according to manufacturer’s directions.) Freeze about 2 hours or until frozen.

The red white and blueberry lemonade pops sound good, though I haven't clicked thru to read the recipe.

I think we made some last summer, but it might have been two summers ago!

It's been a long time since we've made popsicles.  I'd love to try a chocolate kind.
