"My children and their friends ask for my homemade popsicles morning, noon and night. I never turn them down; who am I to tell them that they are good for them! For variety I substitute different flavours of frozen juice - grape, fruit punch, tropical etc."

"My lips are still smacking away. These are FANTASTIC!! Easy to prepare and the flavor was better than pudding pops from the grocery store. I used frozen Barcarde frozen drink mixes like Pina Colada and Strawberry Daqurri. The only change I made was to use nonfat plain yogurt and skim milk for a light tasting dessert. This is great for those weight watchers out there. I now have to purchase more frozen popcycle containers. LOL Thanks so much for such an outstanding recipe."
"Very, very good. My son loves these. He likes tangy/sour things, so using plain yogurt and juice concentrate without added sugar works perfectly for us. Thank you for posting!"
"I used orange juice and doubled the recipe. I ended up with an Orange Julius like mix, and had a cup leftover to drink. Tasty!"
"I doubled the recipe and froze them in plastic cups. They're awesome. I used Welch's 100% Orange Pineapple juice and vanilla yogurt as suggested by others and half cup sugar. other then I followed the directions just doubled the recipe as not to waste the juice or yogurt. These are awesome my kids love them."
"My three boys absolutely loved these. Doubled the recipe, using a 12 oz. frozen 100% juice pomegranate cherry blend, and since I used plain yogurt, added 1/4 cup sugar. With vanilla yogurt, no extra sweetner would have been necessary, also would depend on the type of juice used. Thanks for sharing the recipe!"
"This was easy and delicious. My granddaughter loved making them. We used bathroom cups because that's what we had. I used the vanilla yogurt too. Now her mother is asking for the recipt."
"Such a good healthy alternative. My preschooler loves these."
"These are great! I use 100% (organic) juice and can feel great about giving this wholesome treat to my toddler-who loves it! Thanks Serendipity Elizabeth...."
"I made these exactly as written, using orange juice concentrate. The plain fat free yogurt has a really strong bite and these ended up being quite tart. I'd use vanilla yogurt next time. I'm sure I'll be making this a lot this summer, though."
"In the words of a 3 and a half year old "Mmmm, this is yummy, Mommy!" I agree. I used OJ, and the taste was a bit overpowering for me so I may try a different juice concentrate next time or reduce it from 3/4 to 1/2 cup. I also added a 1/2 cup of frozen raspberries for colour and added flavour, which I added after everything else was mixed and just pulsed a few times so the pieces didn't get too small. Thanks for a great, versatile recipe!"
"Dh says 5 stars for sure. I made this using dry lemon-flavored drink mix, ie Chrystal Light. He's the lemon fan so they were made just for him. I made popsicle molds of small paper cups and wooden popsicle sticks I found at the local crafts store. Just peel off the cups when ready to serve. "
"This turned out AWESOME!"
