Making Wonderful Traditions



When I was growing up mom made these often during the hot summer months in Central N.Y, Utica to be exact.


Jello is the main ingredient and always a fun easy project for us kids to make and a special treat that didn't cost much.


We seem to never have money for the ice cream man that came around, even with both parents working.


Money was tight in the 1960s. Mom and dad both worked. She always found a way to cut costs.


Making everything homemade was one of those frugal ways.


I look back at that now and am grateful to take after her, make my own copycat recipes and know what's in what I'm eating.


The memories made with Mom are irreplaceable and I cherish every one of them.


Now having grandchildren, I continue these wonderful traditions we loved as a child making their favorite flavored jello popsicles.

Fun Flavors Options for Jello Pops



We can certainly make any kind for adults and adapt this recipe as I have revised my popsicle ingredients for parties and fun changes.

Sugar-free popsicles versions are super easy to make substituting jello packages for this low carb no sugar version.

Adding your favorite wines, vodka, and sangria or any other liqueurs have been a hit at many parties substituting some of the water on hot summer get-togethers.

Patriot Bomb Pops are always a big hit during the holiday season.

It will take a little time freezing the colorful layers and making 3 flavors blue raspberry jello, cherry jello, and any flavored pale colors like pineapple or lemon. Pour one layer, freeze and repeat to layer the colors and flavors.

They sure are pretty tasty bomb pops and a great addition for the Patriotic holiday too, especially when it's hot out.

My last suggestion is it add some finely chopped or pureed fruits to the water to make a full cup instead of just water IE: apples, peaches, cherries, and even watermelon freezes well.

Hopefully, I gave you enough suggestions to keep cool and have a fun summer treat! Jello Popsicles are a cool delicious treat that brings out the child in all of us!
