Homemade Popcicles - and Sugar Free Raspberry Green Tea Popcicles

Once upon a time in a small town in Iowa in 1973 there was a little blonde haired girl with big blue eyes (that later turned green but that's another story) that was outside walking around her backyard on a hot summer day with a homemade purple Popsicle in her little hand. That little girl was me and the homemade popcicles, courtesy of Tupperware. I don't think you can get them anymore though. 

Well guess who still has those very same popcicle molds? ME! Yeah! Me! The originals, that my mother bought back in 1973 are still in use today. Only today I'm making a sugar free Green Tea popcicle. Ah, the little girl grew up.

Raspberry Green Tea Popcicles

1 - 3 oz. package sugar-free raspberry jello
1 tub of sugar-free Crystal Lite Raspberry Green Tea drink powder
2 c cold water
2 c boiling water

Boil 2 cups of water in the microwave while you dump the two dry powders in a large bowl. Stir in the boiling water until it's dissolved. Add 2 cups cold water. Pour into popcicle molds, small dixie cups or plastic cups with a popcicle stick out the top if you prefer. Freeze.


For a Kool-Aid version use:

3 oz. jello
1 c sugar or sweetener of choice
1 pkg. dry Kool-Aid
2 c cold water
2 c boilding water

Freeze as usual.Print Friendly and PDF
