Mix your favorite batch of lemonade, whether fresh squeezed or made from a mix. Then freeze.

Lemonade is refreshing itself but to have it in the form of a frozen treat can put you over the top.

    Those sound wonderful. After months of rain and cold, we’re supposed to have temps in the 90s this week – perfect popsicle weather!

  2. Grizzly Bear Mom says

    Poor woman’s popsicles: poor Koolaid into cups. Freeze 30 minutes and insert a popsicle stick. Freeze until firm. Extra points for having blue lipped and wristed (from melting) kids!

  3. Lois says

    Orange creamsicles are easy to make with plain yogurt, instant vanilla pudding mix and orange juice concentrate. Mix to taste and put in molds. Sorta healthy with calcium and Vitamin C.

    I made the popsicles and they are very good. The only thing is I used plastic molds and the popsicles were hard to remove from them without breaking the popsicle. I tryed dipping them in some warm water to unstick them, but they seemed they would rather melt than unstick. Maybe next time I will use dixie cups because at least you can cut them off if they stick.

      I use plastic molds all the time. Instead using hot water you can just let it sit in the room temperature for a few minutes. Or sometimes if I would just dip a sponge or a small rag into a warm or hot water and just wipe the outside of the plastic. The only when my popsicles could break if I used mushed fruit in it or chocolate that doesn’t freeze well.

  5. Myra Dolence says

    I used to mix koolaid and jello together and put it in molds. They were a big hit in the neighborhood when my girls were young. The jello seems to keep them from melting so quickly.

    • Penny S says

      Myra,what ratio of water did you use when you mixed the Kool-Aid and jello together to make the popsicles?

  6. getforfree says

    I usually would just use 100% juice and freeze it in molds, but adding jello might prevent them from thawing too fast. Thank you. I will try to use jello and concentrated juice of the same flavor because I don’t have any drink mixes.
