Homemade Popsicle How-To

Here's a great homemade treat that we've taken up as Big Boy is getting older.

Homemade Popsicles

One frozen container of juice
One box of jello in a coordinating flavor

  1. Mix the box of jello according to the directions. It's important to dissolve the jello first or it will not dissolve in the juice.
  2. Mix in the container of juice, adding the appropriate amount of water.
  3. Most call for 3 juice containers of water. I add this amount despite the water in the jello as my little guy is still small and I tend to dilute his juice anyways.
  4. Pour into Tupperware molds and freeze until hardened.
These are nutritious and a great snack on a hot summer afternoon.
Some flavor combinations that we've tried are:
  • Pineapple juice and strawberry jello
  • Orange juice and strawberry jello
  • White grape juice and raspberry jello
  • Pineapple juice and orange jello
