You are going to love this frugal and fun family activity! Let the kiddos cool down after a hard day of play when you make these fruit cocktail ice pops! They are so easy, I mean easy, and the end result is a tasty and cheap treat that the kiddos will want to gobble up. Take a peek below at how we made a batch in just minutes and for just pennies. Yes, pennies.

Fruit Cocktail Ice Pops

Supplies needed:
1 can of fruit cocktail
1 cup of fruit juice (any)
Ice pop molds

We found all of these items at our local dollar store. This includes the ice pop molds even. You can use any fruit juice you wish. We used a powder mix with a lemonade flavor. You can pick any flavor or color that goes along with your preferences.

In a pitcher, mix the can of fruit cocktail and cup of fruit juice. Mix it well and then pour it into the molds. Allow the molds to rest in the freezer until solid.

Did you catch how easy those directions are? Can you even handle it? I know I can! When the pops are solid just pull them out and start eating! They will be sweet and full of chunks of fruit. No two will end up the same.

Give these fun and frugal fruit cocktail ice pops a try. It is such an easy recipe even the kiddos can pretty much do them themselves. When you are done, snap a pic of your gang enjoying them and share with us on the Facebook page or Community Chat page.  We love to see how you use these DIY projects and recipes in your own lives.

Have a happy weekend, friends! Stay cool, and remember to relax and have fun!
