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.

Shake Jello, Kool-Aid, sugar, and hot water to mix. Add cold water and shake. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze. If you don't have popsicle molds, use paper cups and craft sticks.

We have been eating those yummy jello cups you can buy at the grocery store that come in multi-packs. I have been reusing the little cups to make ice pops, and using the thousand and one pop sticks we have to make pops out of them.
I just fill the little emply jello cups with water and then plop a teaspoon or two or whole frozen blueberries. Then I plop a plastic stick in there and freeze. They have been a huge hit. They are the perfect pop container as the pop comes out easily. They are also easier to get out of the mold. I put the little plastic pop holders at a sideway angle so they won't pull out of the pop. We love it!
I have resigned myself to paying more for wholesome food. Although blueberries at first glance are expensive, they are awesome brain food.
This is a tasty blend of fruit, nuts and spices.

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!

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.

Kool-Aid Popsicles II
This saves money on store-bought popsicles.
In bowl mix:
Add 1 very hot cup of water and mix well.
Put in 2 quart pitcher and add cold water to fill pitcher (or less water if you want sweeter popsicles).
Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
P.S. For cherry popsicles I buy cherry kool-aid and cherry jello or whatever flavors you want you can do the same thing for.
Put fruit and juice through a food mill or the blender. Puree till thick. Freeze in 5 ounce paper cups with spoon or popsicle sticks.
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.
