When Cash was sick, I learned that nothing beats a sore throat better than a cold, sweet popsicle. I also weighed the pros and cons of letting a 2-year-old suffer from a sore throat or get popsicle drippings EVERYWHERE.
Let me tell you, I really contemplated letting him suck it up because cleaning up purple and red drip stains every 5 seconds was not about to be added to my already long to-do list.
That’s when I discovered Jell-O popsicles. They are the best frozen treat and taste like a popsicle but when they melt, they actually keep the Jell-O consistency. Cash loves them and I don’t have to clean up the mess. WIN WIN!
Here’s how I made them
I was against Jell-O products for the longest time because of all the preservatives and unnecessary added junk. I was pleased to see that they finally came out with a “Simply Good” product that has more natural ingredients in them. I found these at Target, Mixed Berry is the current family favorite but we’re venturing out with the Pineapple Orange. Fingers crossed there’s no household mutiny.
Follow the instructions for the regular method, not the speed set method.
Pour the Jell-O mix into popsicle molds. Again, I got these at Target – the mom mecca.
And voila! Let them set in the freezer + enjoy!
