Does anyone remember when push up pops free came out? I think maybe early 80’s? Theye were mostly Flinstones themed if I remember correctly, and made up of brightly colored sugary yogurt? Yes? No? Am I just aging myself with this stuff!?
Well I remember those vividly. Because my mom wouldn’t buy them. But my neighbors mom would.So my little brother and I would beg and beg to go over there so we could maybe have a Flinstones Push up Pop free. I don’t think it was the day glow colored yogurt that was so interesting as the actual “push up” apparatus!
When I saw those for sale last year, I impulse purchased, and had completely forgotten about them until this last week. The weather has been nice and of course the girls are craving ice cream and popsicles. I was too lazy to get out the ice cream maker and make homemade sorbet for Pia, and I don’t like her to have the sugar free popsicles more than every once in a while- because well, yuck. SO, I had to make some of our own.
That is when I ventured down to the basement to find popsicle molds and found these instead! I just blended up this delicious combination below and poured them in. A few hours later, the kids came home from school to this fun frozen treat. Perfect for the hot holiday weekend, and kids love making them with you!
