{Homemade} Popcycles

I was playing around last night(after the kids went to bed) with some powdered milk I have. My uncle owns a Food Storage Store and they have lots of great products. I got some Strawberry and Orange Powdered Milk. I've made the milk but the kids won't drink it because they get flavored milk at school and can taste the difference. So I decided to make my own Homemade Popcycles.

I remember when I was little and my mom would make Homemade Fudge Popcycles(Jello Pudding: make according to package and then put in cups) and I usually couldn't get enough. My mom tried the other flavors but I stuck with the chocolate. YUM! Those are great memories!
To make the "Orangecycles" Fill 1 quart of hot water, 1/2 cup of orange powdered milk & 1/4 cup of sugar(you can add more if you want it sweeter) to dissolve. Then fill up to the 2 quart line with orange juice. After its well mixed, pour it into dixie cups and put popcycle sticks in. Freeze overnight.

After they are frozen cut a slit in the top for easy ripping.

Just rip the dixie cup off. Ready to eat!

For the Strawberry Powdered Milk you could add fruit juices like pineapple, apricot, fruit punch or even orange. I haven't tried this yet but I will have to soon. Our kids could eat ice cream & popcycles for every meal if I let them. With summer coming this is going to be a lifesaver.

{TIP: depending on your kids you might want to keep this recipe a secret.} Pin It
