How to Make
Full directions for these freezer Jello pops are in the printable recipe card below. This is a quick walk-through.
Start with one flavor of Jello. Heat up water, and stir in the Jello. Once the mixture is well mixed and granules are melted, add in the ice.
Then pour around 1 tablespoon of Jello into mold and place in the freezer to set up.
Repeat until all the layers are set up.
How Much Flavor of Each Jello To Pour into Popsicle Molds
This all depends on the size of your popsicle molds. I used a tablespoon of each, and it worked perfectly. I poured each tablespoon into a clean medicine cup that came on top of some cold medicine we have. Then, used the medicine cup to pour the Jello into the popsicle mold. It worked perfectly!! Perfectly measured and no drips!!
How Long Will These Popsicles Freeze For
The popsicles will freeze for 1-2 months. You will find they are best when eaten within the first few months of being made. They normally don’t last more than a week in our home.
Can I Use Any Flavor of Jello
Any flavor works great. I have not tried doing it with sugar free Jello but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work. It might just freeze a bit harder than regular Jello.

***Hack for making perfectly even rainbow popsicles: I found that one tablespoon of each flavor (with a little extra of blue on top) worked perfectly to fill up my popsicle molds with five flavors. How much you use will depend on the size of your molds and how many flavors you are using. The first time I used the tablespoon to put the jello in the mold, it kept dripping all over and did NOT pour well. So, I poured each tablespoon into a clean medicine cup that came on top of some cold medicine we have. THEN, used the medicine cup to pour the Jello into the popsicle mold. It worked perfectly!! Perfectly measured and no drips!!
Frugal Hack: I hated to throw away the extra jello from making rainbow popsicles, so with each layer, I poured the extra jello into a 9x13 pan and let it chill in the fridge. It made perfect rainbow Jello!
