Thanks to Rob Benes of the Well Fed Network for this inspirational summer recipe…
- 3 ounces of your favorite Jell-O flavor
- 1 packet of unsweetened Kool-Aid (a flavor that complements the Jell-0)
- 1 cup of sugar
- 1 cup of boiling water
Directions: Combine all ingredients in a large pitcher that can hold at least 2 quarts, and stir until dissolved. Next, add enough cold water to make 2 quarts. Then, pour the mixture into your molds and freeze unit it starts to thicken. Finally, insert a popsicle stick (if needed, you can find the sticks at your local grocery store) and let it freeze completely.
If you want, you can experiment by adding pureed fruits, but remember by pureeing the fruit you’ll add some additional liquid so may have to adjust the amount of water needed.
