#SundaySupper: Tropical Ice Pops

#SundaySupper is a group of bloggers who are on a mission to bring back sunday supper around the family table in every home.  This week the theme is kids in the kitchen!

Aren’t they so cute!!  I don’t have kids, but my mom has a day care.  So I have been around kids all my life.  My first jobs were babysitting and whenever I talk to someone who is nervous around kids, it throws me.  Just because kids have always been a part of my life and I can not imagine what my life would have been like if my mom did not have a day care.

The kids liked making the ice pops.  It was really easy, basically just adding stuff to the blender.  They were so funny.  One of them hates the noise that blenders make and so he wanted to run out of the room.  But we all helped him get over his fear of the blender and eventually he even pushed the button to start the blender.

Also, important side note that I was reminded of the hard way.  Please add all the juice in the bottom of the blender so that it can turn easily and blend.  If too many solid things are in the bottom it will break your blender and you will be forced to get you food processor out. :)

We used dixie cups as the mold.  They worked really well.  All you have to do is squeeze a little to get them to pop out.  We had to wait an hour or so to let the ice pops solidify a little before adding the sticks.
