My Top Ten Fav Picks From MM #75

Yard sale gold!

I found this popsicle maker for two bucks. When I got it home, I found the original receipt from Williams Sonoma  for 39.95!  Sorry WS, I'd rather pay 2 dollars.
I decided to give it a whirl and for the first batch, I made coffee pops. I added coffee, milk, sugar and chocolate syrup together. I followed the directions and after freezing the pop maker for 24 hours, It made frozen pops in ten minutes! And they were delicious, too.

Of course you can make frozen pops without the WS maker, but this way is fun, you can be spontaneous. The next batch was made from strawberry yogurt and fresh strawberries. I also added a few strawberry slices for fun.

Oh my gosh, these were really good too!  I like being able to control the ingredients and I know we're going to get a lot of use out of this during the Summer.
My husband loves Popsicles and was pretty happy that I found this. I can already think of dozens of recipes for this, can't wait!
It's the season to  find some great yard sale gold this year to make your life easier, healthier, more frugal and to make you smile.

And now for the top ten! If you were featured this week, feel free to help yourself to a featured button from my sidebar.
