Frozen Fruit Pops

We are big fans of summertime treats at our house.  The freezer is always full of Popsicles and ice cream and other junk.  But interestingly enough, my kiddos prefer the healthier frozen treats.  Namely, these fruit pops.  And its easy to see why.  They taste fresh and really cool you off on a hot day, but most important to me is that they are much more healthy than traditional frozen treats.  These pops are a delicious mixture of fruits and juice.  And at about 12 cents each, they won't break the bank.

Frozen Fruit Pops
Makes about 50 3 oz. pops

2 (20 oz.) cans crushed pineapple, undrained
