I have shiny new popsicle molds. I wish to spend the rest of the summer making all sorts of tasty frozen treats. I'm sure there is going to be a certain amount of "throwing some fruit and juice together willy-nilly and seeing what happens", and we have a paleta-making friend we will consult for his advice, but I'm appealing to the hive mind for recipes or ideas. What unusual flavor combinations might we not think of? What awesome recipes can you send my way? Help me have the tastiest summer ever. [more inside]
I have been freezing strawberries from my garden and currently have about 6-8 cups of them. I need to take a dessert to a Christmas party this weekend. I would like to use the strawberries, but it needs to be something that can be eaten with fingers (probably no bowls or utensils will be available) and work well with berries that have been frozen. Any ideas?

I get a box of fruit & veggies delivered to my house every two weeks. Let me tell you something. IT HAS CHANGED MY LIFE. However, I rarely finish all of the apples and pears and bananas. I stuff them into the freezer when I don't eat them, but... my freezer is overflowing with frozen apples and bananas, and I think a few pears. What can I do with them? [more inside]

I want to start batch cooking my lunches for the month. I want to create delicious, HEALTHY individually-portioned frozen meals that I can pop in the microwave. Other catch: they have to be relatively cheap to make. Suggestions for recipes that fit the bill?
What are your favorite freezer-friendly recipes? Caveat: I'm diabetic and don't eat grains or legumes. However, things meant to be served over grains, legumes, or starchy vegetables are fine (I'm not always the only one eating at my table). Super bonus points for being able to freeze in portions.
