This is a great frozen treat for kids. Since they are made from jello, they don’t melt and run as fast as juice pops, which is something I really like if I’m giving these to my 2 year old. I used pureed strawberries to add a real fruit value to these pops.
I recently bought plastic pop molds, but you can use paper or disposable cups and wooden sticks. All you have to do is let them freeze a bit so you can put the sticks in and have them stay in place. Look at these cute little cups you can use.
I’ll be trying out some chocolate milk pops and other natural fruit juice pops for kids soon!
