Homemade Jello Ice Pops

All you need to make great frozen pops are dollar store molds and … dollar store generic jello. I use the standard round mold with reusable sticks so I’m always ready to make some when the hot weather strikes. There are tons of fancy shapes out there, but I find those the easiest to get out of the mold.

This is a recipe my mom made over and over every summer when we were kids (and still does). It’s been so long I have no idea where the recipe is originally from. This is a lot better than the old frozen juice, staying tasty to the last chunk.

1 packet (85g) of Jello (or generic brand)
1/2 cup of sugar
2 cups of boiling water
2 cups of cold water


  • Put the jello powder and the sugar in a large bowl.
  • Add the boiling water and stir until the powder and sugar are completed dissolved. Mix in the cold water.
  • Pour the jello mix in the ice pop molds, leaving a bit of room at the top. Put the sticks in and freeze overnight.
  • To unmold, run hot water over the mold, twisting and pulling the stick gently until it gets out.

    I used to make similar ones but also used a packet of unsweetened Kool Aid in the recipe. I was addicted to these babies while pregnant with Cameron in the summer of ’98. Tastiest popsicles ever!

    I’ve tasted the Kool Aid ones too and they’re also great, but using only Jello is more convenient I think.
