Had a craving for a popsicle, but didn't have any in the house. I use to have a homemade popsicle recipe, but couldn't find it. I'm glad that I found this one. Dug out my tupperware popsicle holders that I've had for past 20 years. I used a pkg. Watermelon Cherry Kool-Aid, and a box of Watermelon JELL-O; these popsicles tasted great. Can't wait to experiment with other flavors, like: Berry Blue Kool-Aid with Berry Blue JELL-O, Raspberry Kool-Aid with Raspberry JELL-O, Kiwi-Watermelon Kool-Aid with Watermelon JELL-O, Strawberry Kool-Aid with Strawberry/Banana JELL-O, Mandarin Orange Kool-Aid with either Apricot, Peach or Orange-Pineapple JELL-O etc... Can't wait to make these for my granddaughter; she'll think that her grandma makes the best tasting popsicles in the whole world. Thanks Darlene for the recipe.
I have made these popsicles ever since my kids were small, which is close to 40 years. I got the recipe at a Tupperware party. The last few years I substituted Splenda for the sugar, and I use the sugar free Jello. The consistency is a bit different, but they taste pretty good! I figured this would be good for the calorie cutters and for anyone who is diabetic!
Making mines tonight.My little man has a tummy bug and wants popsicles.
