Popsicle on kid o infoBy Katy Killilea

Feel a bit hot in your kitchen? Here are five fast snacks to make in your freezer.

1. World’s easiest popsicle: insert a popsicle stick through the lid of a cup of yogurt. Freeze. Turn upside down and remove cup. Eat. Also yummy with little pudding cups.

2. World’s second easiest popsicle: Peel one ripe banana. Insert popsicle stick vertically. Freeze. Eat. Also works for pineapple or anything you can use your engineering skills to get a stick into.

3. Frozen grapes or nectarine slices: place fruit on a sheet of wax paper on a plate. Place in freezer for a few hours. Eat. (Warning: may be a choking hazard for kids under 3)

4. Ice Cream Balls: At night, scoop ice cream into individual portions in a paper-lined muffin pan. Freeze. (To spare yourself the effort of scooping at a hotter time of day.)

5. Ice Cream Sandwiches: Place tiny scoops of vanilla ice cream between two gingersnaps. Store in freezer. If the ice cream is Ben & Jerry’s and the gingersnaps are Trader Joe’s Triple Ginger Snaps, it will be perfect. If you use other cookies and other ice cream, it will still be delicious.

    regarding the choking hazard: anyone can choke on a snack, even a parent or the president of the united states.
