"You're going to cooperate with my investigation on finding that missing otter, or the only place you'll be selling pawpsicles is the prison cafeteria." - Judy Hopps

I have fond memories of making homemade popsicles as a kid. When I saw Zootopia, I knew I needed a trip down memory lane. You can make these by getting clever with yogurt and soda containers, but paw print popsicle molds will save you time and effort. Plus, then you've got paw print molds!

Instead of using cranberry juice, you can use any red juice like raspberry or strawberry lemonade. Alternatively, you can make your own juice instead of buying it. Just boil and mash 2 cups of red fruit (like raspberries or strawberries), strain out the juice, and sweeten as desired with sugar or honey. The old Nick Wilde wouldn't make pawpsicles with homemade juice, but I have a feeling Judy's convinced him by now to try everything.
