I am very into the idea of making popcicles in my popcicle makers however I have just been too lazy to get the ingredients SO I am going to start posting some options on here and I can just hop on our little bloggy bloggy while at the store. This one is Banana Cherry Jell-o pops and the recipe is from Pantry Eats.
Recipe1 box (4 oz) of sugar free cherry gelatin (or other delicious flavor)
1 tsp lemon juice
1 8 oz tub of light whipping cream (or make your own if so inclined)
1 can of Apple Cherry juice concentrate (feel free to use any flavor your heart desires)
1 Cup boiling water
1 Cup cold water
Place cherry gelatin in medium bowl. Add 1 cup boiling water and stir 2 minutes until gelatin is completely dissolved. Add enough ice cubes to 1 cup cold water to make 2 cups cold water. Add to gelatin and stir until ice cubes are completely dissolved. Pour evenly into 16 plastic cups or popsicle mold. (I used huge wide cups and the popsicles were a little too big. 5 oz cups would have been much better.) Add about 1/4 cup to each cup and freeze for 1 hour.
Slice 3 bananas and add bananas and lemon juice to whip cream. Spoon mixture onto frozen gelatin in cups. Stick plastic spoons or popsicle sticks into center of each cup and freeze for another hour. Top off with juice and freeze for an additional 4 hours or overnight.
To remove pops from cups, place bottom of cups under warm running water and press firmly on bottom of cup.
