Kitchen Hack: Make Sliceable Popsicles in a Loaf Pan

Yesterday it was sliced ice cream. Today it's sliced popsicles: a pretty brilliant idea for those of us who don't have popsicle molds.

This bright idea is via Lynne at the food blog And then I do the dishes. She says that she just hasn't been able to find the popsicle molds that she wants, so instead of settling for second-best, she opted to not spend any money at all and just make popsicles in a loaf pan instead. After the popsicles froze, she lifted them out of the loaf pan and sliced them into individual servings.

This is a great idea, especially for smoother, more slice-able popsicles like these Strawberry-Watermelon Yogurt pops that she made. I have a longer, narrower loaf pan, too, that would be perfect for this. Fun!

What else have you hacked into a popsicle mold? We like the old Dixie cup trick, and then of course there's always the ice cube tray!
