Test Kitchen Tip: If using paper cups instead of popsicle molds, cover each cup in foil. Insert a wooden pop sticks through foil into each cup. Freeze as directed. Pureed fruit mixture may also be frozen in ice cube trays. Add ice cubes to sparkling water, lemonade or iced tea for a fun fruity beverage.
