Cherry Lemonade Jello Popsicles

Hey Hey it's another great Monday! Hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We FINALLY finished the garden. Whoo Hoo!! I've been working on that thing since the middle of April. I'll be sharing all about that journey with you guys soon!

Today, though, I want to share with you this sweet treat that I can't.stop.eating. And it's just perfect for our upcoming hot spring/summer days. Cherry Lemonade Jello Popsicles!
These are so delicious and absolutely effortless. All you do is make jello like you normally would, but instead of putting in the fridge, you put it in the freezer. That's about it!
I combined together a cherry and a lemon mix and the flavors together are absolutely perfect.
I can't wait to share these with guests when they come by this summer!

1 box cherry jello mix
1 box lemon jello mix
2 Cups boiling water
2 Cups cold water
Decorative containers (I used Patty Pan Pantry baking cups)
Wooden kabob skewers, or popsicle sticks
1 sheet of aluminum foil


Lay out your decorative containers on a baking sheet that will fit in your freezer. Ready a piece of aluminum foil that will fit over all the containers. This will help the skewers stand upright. Cut each skewer in half.

Combine the two packages of jello in a large bowl that has a pour spout. The pour spout makes it easier to pour the mix into the containers.

Boil 2 cups of water and stir it into the jello mix for a couple minutes, or until all of the powder is dissolved.

Add in the 2 cups of cold water and stir. Pour enough jello mix into the containers to almost fill them.

Place the aluminum foil over the filled containers and poke the wooden skewer through the foil into the container. The foil should make the wooden skewer stand upright. Obviously it's ok if they fall over. They'll still be delicious!
Set in the freezer for about five hours, or overnight if you have time. Remove and peel off of the container. Bite and enjoy!

This recipe made exactly 16. I couldn't believe how perfectly it filled the containers without any leftover.

I think these will be a new summertime favorite of ours! What are your favorite summer treats you make at your house? Would love more ideas!

  7. Is the texture like Jello? I'm usually not a Jello fan, but this might convert me. Thanks for sharing on Hump Day Happenings!

    1. Hey Megan! No these have the same texture as a popsicle. I honestly don't like jello either :) The texture bothers me, too. I wanted to make these as popsicles because I had some mix I bought a looong time ago for a different recipe I never made and needed to use up. Turned out great. Nothing like jello!

  8. This sounds so refreshing! I love jello but never thought to use it for popsicles before. Yum!

  14. These look like a great treat for summer! I'm always looking for something a little more unique than a regular popsicles. My kids need the extra water when they are running around outside, so I'm going to give these a try! Thanks for post!

  15. I bet you could also use lime jello too, right? Then it would be a limeade! I'm pinning this for sure! It'll be perfect for summer!
