Kool Aid is a childhood staple. When you’re a kid, there’s nothing better than sitting outside on a sunny afternoon with a big glass of cold Kool Aid in hand. While Kool Aid is a delicious drink on its own, you can also make mocktails and cocktails with Kool Aid and bake it into desserts. You can make pies, cookies, truffles, cheesecakes and more with the fun, fruity drink mix. They’re the perfect recipes for summer and the flavour of your desserts is totally customizable when you use Kool Aid. Your kids can choose their favourite colours and flavours for their desserts and you can get creative with your cocktails and mocktails. Give into your nostalgia and try these colourful Kool Aid recipes, perfect for kids and adults alike.
6 Tips for Cooking and Baking with Kool Aid
1. To make a Kool Aid pie, whisk Kool Aid with sweetened condensed milk in a bowl until thoroughly combined and thick. Gently fold whipped topping into the mixture until light and fluffy. Spread filling into pie crust and refrigerate for 1 hour before serving.
2. If you want to make fun, colourful cookies, Kool Aid is the perfect ingredient to use. Plus, unlike using food colouring, it will give your cookies a nice, fruity flavour.
3. When you’re mixing up your Kool Aid, make sure not to use plastic bowls or utensils as the Kool Aid may stain them.
4. If you want to cut down on the fruitiness of Kool Aid desserts, add half the amount of Kool Aid the recipe calls for.
5. You can buy sugar-free Kool Aid if you want to add less sugar to the recipe.
6. Get creative! Kool Aid comes in different flavours and colours which makes Kool Aid recipes great to make with kids. They can pick their favourite colour or flavour and be a part of the baking process.
