Homemade Popsicles

It's already been up to 90 degrees in Ohio, so we're officially in to summer weather -- Popsicle weather. And while I make many other foods from scratch because they're better for us, these I make just because they taste better. Even adults love these Popsicles. They are solid, but when you scrape them with your teeth, the Popsicle shaves off. The jello keeps them from freezing completely solid like a regular Popsicle. I guarantee you'll love them.


1 small box Jell-O
1 envelope
Kool-Aid (complimentary or same flavor Jell-O)
1 cup sugar
2 cups boiling water
2 cups cold water

Kool-Aid, Jell-O, sugar, and boiling water until sugar dissolves. Add cold water. Mold until frozen.

Note: This might sound daffy, but unless you know for certain what color your Kool-aid and Jello are, use care before mixing. No matter how good it tastes, no kid will eat a Popsicle that looks like muddy water.

LOL Barbara - great minds must think alike. We also made popsicles today, only I made them with smoothie as my one year old gets no fruit otherwise! Will have to try with kool-aid, although my limited illegally imported supply is running low! ;-)
