POP IN A TRAY!!
by Jazmine McCracken (Canada)
1. Get an ice tray.
2. Get a can of pop...any kind.
3. Poor the pop into each slot.
4. Then take either straws or popsicle sticks and put them in.
Try your best to make them stand(they may not stand straight up)!!
5.Check on them 1 hour later to see if its slush then try to put
them straight up
one bottle of water
one pack of crystal lite lemonade flavor
Mix and add to a Popsicle mold. This is easy and fun.
Blend in blender or in mixer until smooth.
Freeze for four to six hours.
Editor Note: We made these with plastic cups and popsicle
sticks. If you have trouble getting them out of the cups, run the
bottom of the cup under hot water and they slide right out.
Popsicle recipes are something easy to make and kid friendly. Any
drink mix will taste great poured into Popsicle molds or small paper
cups with a Popsicle stick inserted. However, sugar free or drinks
such as Crystal light won't turn out as well. So if using those mix
a little juice, fruit drink or Kool-Aid in with it before freezing.
Most of these Popsicles require a pudding mix, a lemonade mix, some
juice or a recipe of your own that is easy to make. Just follow the
directions on the box or package and pour into the Popsicle molds.
