Summer is right around the corner and I might be just as excited as my children!  From parks to picnics to outdoor fun, we make the best of every single one of those three months! 

koolaid jello popsicles

One thing I love to do with my children is to get them in the kitchen.  These fun Jello and Kool-Aid popsicles are easy enough for a child’s help one night before bed, then anxiously awaiting to be eaten on the next morning!


Kool-Aid JELL-O Popsicles Recipe

homemade popsicles

You will need:

  • 1 (3 oz) package Jell-O
  • 1 packet of Kool-Aid
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 cup boiling water
  • 2 cup cold water


Combine Jell-O, Kool-Aid, sugar and boiling water together in bowl or pitcher and mix well.  Add cold water and stir to combine.

Gently pour the solution into popsicle molds, paper or plastic cups.

Using tin foil, cover each cup.  Set the popsicle sticks in the middle by slicing a hole in the center of the foil, which will keep the sticks standing in the center.

Freeze for 4 – 6 hours or until solid.  Remove the popsicle from the cup or mold by letting them sit on the counter for a couple minutes.

YIELDS: 6 popsicles

    I found this recipe a long time ago. Make 134 of them for my family reunion. You can mix the flavors of the jello and kool aid. Come up with some good flavors. Everyone loved them. They are easy and cheap to make.

  2. Can you use a blend of sugar and Truvia sweetner instead of all that sugar?

    Only one problem you can’t buy single serve packets of kool- aid in Canada anymore.

    Unfortunately I can’t find any Kool Aid packets (Québec, Canada) but some other quality crystals do the job. Delicious recipe. If you’re doing the recipe with cheap Lipton crystals you won’t have to use much sugar because it’s basically plain sugar with artificial flavour, and if it get hard as an iceberg you can put little fruits in the mix, should result in a more crunchy popsicle but more fragile. Have fun!

    • Google says your answer is a 3 oz package of jello is equal to 1/3 cup.
