Applesauce ice pops

Nothing says summer like ice pops. Flavors are limitless. If it can be frozen, it be an ice pop! Applesauce ice pops are good snacks for both children and adults. Pureéd applesauces work best and can be thinned out with water making for a consistency more suitable for freezing. Children love this snack because it puts the familiar, applesauce, on a stick! Adults will love this, too, particularly with the addition of chopped herbs like mint or rosamary for a grown-up spin on a childhood favorite.
