  1. Sorry Lee, We followed the directions on the back of the jello box for the most part, 1 Cup hot water, 1 Cup cold water (or orange juice) and then we added fruit. When we made the berry one we put 5-10 berries in each popsicle container, with the bannanas we mashed two of them and just mixed it in. We’ve also added leftover fruitsalad. I didn’t really keep track of the amounts of fruit. Sorry. The popsicles tasted great each way we made them.

  2. Hi! Thanks for your comments and question!

    Yes, I am a cash-only gal!
    At one time we had a lot of credit with two incomes. When we went to one income, we still had the debt for two. It took a lot of getting used to but we carry no credit cards, not even for emergencies. We just decided that if we couldn’t pay cash, we didn’t need it. The only thing we have financed is the house and 1 car. We’re not always rewarded for using cash but that’s ok with us. It’s been better for the budget – not always easy though, but doable for us!

    Great blog by the way. So informative!

    I hate to be a “Negative Nancy”, but both sets of the instructions fail to mention the actual Jello! I assume that we mix the Jello into the boiling water and stir until it is dissolved and THEN proceed with the remaining instructions?
