Homemade Popsicles

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Karen..

A friend gave me this recipe and it is a great treat for the kiddos, especially in the spring and summer! Easier to make if you have popsicle molds (available at most dollar stores and from Tupperware), but you can get away with using 3 ounce paper cups and craft sticks or plastic spoons. Plan ahead, as they need to freeze for several hours.

Karen, these were great! My kids couldn't wait to get their hands on them. They were very easy to prepare! I used grape kool aid and grape jello. Exciting, huh? :) I didn't want to spring any funky flavor combos on my kids, they can be picky. Anyway, they taste great, and I will be making these all summer! Thanks for posting!
