With a forecast of 96 degrees and a heat index of 105 today (I don't understand any of those words or numbers), I thought I'd prepare some icy delights last night.
Many of you know, I am slightly obsessed with popsicles. Not so much the making of them, just really the eating of them. I bought a bag of those nifty freeze pops before my lonely weekend and they were gone in three days. I'll let you do the math on that one.
I don't have many cravings when I'm pregnant. But I do like icy beverages, ice-like desserts, icy fruit, or just plain ice. I would eat it non-stop if I could. Non-stop. Oooh, Frappuccino. You were my downfall on baby #1.
So, with an excuse of "saving money in the long run," I bought a few popsicle molds at good ol' Target and asked my ma for the recipe of those popsicles she always used to make when we were little. (But Ma had Tupperware popsicle molds! So fancy!)
- one package Kool-Aid
- one package Jello
- 2/3 cup sugar
- 2 cups boiling water
- 2 cups cold water
Combine first three ingredients in a heat-safe bowl. Pour in boiling water and mix well to dissolve Jello. Then add 2 cups cold water. Fill popsicle molds.
AND I also got this great idea from this cute website to make root beer float popsicles. Yum!
So excited. It's not too wrong to eat these before 8am, is it?
