One of my favorite parts of summer as a kid was running back into the house after a day of playing in the sprinklers and being handed a sweet, red strawberry popsicle. It's an integral part of the out-of-school experience when you're young! You can't have long summer days without a frozen treat to sweeten the deal. But even though stained mouths and cheeks are inevitable when a popsicle and kid combine, you can avoid some of the drippy, sticky clean-up by making these no-drip popsicles instead!


  • 13 oz package of Jell-O (or 13 oz. of agar agar)
  • 1 package of Kool-aid
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 2 cups of boiling water
  • 2 cups of cold water


  1. Mix your dry ingredients - the Jell-O, Kool-aid, and sugar - together.
  2. Dissolve them in the boiling water.
  3. Stir in 2 cups of cold water.
  4. Pour the mixture into your popsicle molds and freeze!

You can try experimenting with other tasty no-drip popsicle recipes by mixing 3 oz of Jell-O (or agar agar) with 1 cup of boiling water, and then mixing in your choice of fruit (for a sizing example, 1 banana works) and 1 cup of yogurt!   Related Searches on Yummly:
