    Today's tip may not be a full meal but it's a great snack that kids can help with. Most kids love frozen pops during the heat of the summer, but some store brands can be packed with sugar.

    Instead you can make them at home using fresh ingredients.

    What you need:
    A blender
    8 ice pop molds (freezer-friendly mini cups with craft sticks in the center work, too)
    Fine mesh strainer (optional, if you're using fresh fruit with seeds)

    Flavors Options from the FoodNetwork: 
    Watermelon, lime juice, cilantro
    Mango and orange juice
    Strawberries and skim milk
    Raspberry and lemon juice
    Lemon juice and mint
    Coconut milk and lime juice

    Example: Strawberry-Lemon Popsicles

    Put strawberries, honey, lemon juice in blender; blend until smooth. Strain mixture through a sieve to remove seeds. Pour into molds, making sure to leave room at the top. Insert sticks all the way down into the mold. Freeze overnight. To remove pops from mold, run under warm water for a few seconds.
