Make Popsicles Melt More Slowly With Gelatin

Amber Lou on The Paisley Cake shares this tip: Add a package of jelly to the juice you’re using for the popsicle and freeze as you usually would. Besides reducing the chances of stains, the added gelatin should also improve the texture and consistency of the popsicle. (For a vegetarian option, Popsicaholic notes you can use agar or carrageenan instead.)
