Popsicle recipes

We just got some popsicle molds for making your own popsicles at home. It's amazing, I've had two popsicles a day since we got them. Here's what we've made so far, all of them have been excellent:

Orange creamsicles: equal parts of: Orange juice concentrate, milk, and vanilla yogurt (these were amazing)
Blueberries and vanilla yogurt (SUPER yummy)
Orange juice
Lemon creamsicles: lemonade concentrate, water, milk, and half and half -- keep adding little bits of everything until it tastes good. Yes the lemonade curdles the milk but you're not drinking it, you're freezing it so who cares?

I made one with part orange juice part cherry juice as a test (we ran out of orange juice) but my daughter nabbed that one when I was at work.

I just put in some straight lemonade popsicles (going for lemon ice) and a brand new idea: spicy lemon creamsicle. Spicy Lemon Creamsicle: Chop a small Morita pepper. Cover with water for about 5 minutes, enough to start softening it. Add lemonade concentrate, half and half, and milk.

I have no idea if this is too much hot pepper or not. I guess I'll find out tomorrow morning!

UPDATE: WAY too much hot pepper.

When you tweeted about the disaster this could be, I was wondering what the awful would be. I should have guessed pepper.
