A Basic "Pop-sicle" Recipe
3 ounce package gelatin (Jell-O or store brand), any flavor
Combine all in a two quart plastic pitcher. Stir until all is dissolved. Add enough cold water to make two quarts. Pour into small paper drinking cups and freeze until it starts thickening then insert a Pop-sicle stick and continue to freeze until hardened.
4 cups watermelon, seeds removed, cubed
Place the watermelon in blender and puree. Pour into the paper cups, insert sticks and freeze until hardened. (You can use small Dixie cups or paper cups that are a little larger.)
2 cups fresh, or frozen strawberries
Puree the fruit in a blender. Pour into paper cups and freeze. Insert sticks when partially frozen and continue to freeze until they harden (overnight is good).
