These are made from juice you've already paid for, and fairly healthy popsicles. I freeze the juice from canned fruit in popsicle molds. I also use the liquid that forms in a bowl of cut watermelon. My kids love them and they keep me from wasting the extra juices.
I saw a photograph of this in an online search. I think this is a wonderful way to get children eating more fruit and I can make these with sugar-free Jelly granules as I am a diabetic. I am going to make a big batch for myself and my nieces and nephews. I hope you enjoy making and more importantly, eating them!
1 package of any flavor Jello
1 cup of fruit
Prepare the Jello according to the package. Cut the fruit into bite sized pieces and place into the mold. Fill with Jello in the liquid state. Place in freezer for at least four hours before devouring. Makes 6
Homemade popsicles made from fruit juice are much more economical and healthier than pops bought from the store. And if you are just a little bit creative, you can make layers, and combinations that are fun for your kids.
Here is an easy and inexpensive cold treat to make for your kids. Even the big kids, namely me, like them on hot summer days.
Mix together 2 cups plain yogurt, 1/2 cup crushed pineapple and 6 ounces frozen orange-juice concentrate. Pour into 3-ounce paper or plastic cups. Freeze for 45 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken. Insert a wooden craft stick into the center of each pop. Freeze for about 4 hours or until pops are solid.
