If you make them, what are your favorite?

I do ones made with koolaid and jello - the jello makes it so that the flavor stays through the whole thing and you can't just suck it out. My favorite is orange jello and peach koolaid, tastes just like a Fuzzy Navel drink yummy!

I also just dump any leftover smoothies we make into the popsicle cups and the kids eat those up when they freeze.

How much koolaid and jello do you put in it and how much water? I've tried making just koolaid ones and maybe i picked the wrong flavor but it was terrible! :( The smoothie popsicle sounds amazing! We make a lot of green smoothies, i bet they'd be awesome as popsicles!! Thanks.(:

Recipe 2 on this page. They are really good and keep the flavour.

I always add spinach to my smoothies and was worried about the color, but the kids didn't even notice in the popsicles. I always make a full blender of smoothie, so this is an easy way not to waste any.

Thank you!! It's a great way to get them some protein and they don't even know it!
