Keeping cool on a hot day

One of the staples for our house during the hot summer months is popsicles. I like to get the Otter Pops but this year have had to cut back on expenses so I got some popsicle molds. Now we make our own popsicles with juice and/or Kool-aid. I know there's a way to use Jell-O to make them, too, but don't know exactly what to do with that. What is your favorite way to make popsicles? Do you have a special recipe?

Our local stores sell a dozen sugar-free for under 2 bucks, that's a pretty good deal if you ask me, I think they sell maybe 18 sugared ones for about the same... I hear they are making pops with jello, the slow melt ones, no idea how they do it tho

I can't eat sugar free...I have bad reactions to the artificial sweeteners. That is a good price, though. I managed to get a box of 100 Otter Pops for $4.99 the other day here, which is a good deal but they always have green and orange in there and I don't like those flavors. Making my own, I get to choose the flavors. I like that!

We always made popsicle when we were young. In my memory, we mix milk or orange juice with hot water in a big bowl. After cooling, immiting into the mold. Finally, put into the refrigeratory. It is finished. I like the memory in my childhood. There were so many interesting things and we could do them by ourselves.
