About: Inspired by my cat Chili, who is full of fun and energy, I like to share about food and other home crafts with a new twist of 'chili'-fun. (This user was previously called Snowball10)

Sweltering summer days are upon us and what could better bring the mind to a beach paradise than tropical juice pops? These are no ordinary juice pops – they are gold from a tropical island ... the fruity ice packs a delicate treasure of creamy chunks ... and the tempting combination of refreshing tropical juice and sweet banana will please young and old alike. They are a must to try this summer, and you have no excuse, since they are easy enough for a kid to make.

Step 1: For One Pop, You Will Need:

- 1 banana

- 1/4 to 1/2 c. (1/2 to 1 dl.) tropical juice

- something to freeze the pop in

- a freezer

- someone willing to eat it (everyone!? Oh well, just multiply the recipe :)

Step 2: Ready, Set, Go!

For these pops, you can use popsicle molds or just plain cups with a teaspoon or craft stick in. I use cups. Slice a banana and put it in the cup(s). Stick down a teaspoon (handle up) or craft stick into the banana slices and make sure it stands straight and secure. Then, pour in some tropical juice till it nearly covers the bananas. You don't want to cover the bananas completely, as too much juice will cause the bananas to float and the teaspoon to fall. Now, when the teaspoon is steady, pop the pops in the freezer. Tomorrow, you will have delicious tropical juice pops! If the pops are stuck, just run the cups under warm water a few seconds. The pops should pop right out of the cups. Enjoy!
