My oldest boy and I made this together after breakfast this morning--we used strawberry Kool-Aid. VERY simple. We could not wait for it to cool. He had to mix some into milk RIGHT THAT SECOND. I wouldn't recommend that. But really this recipe is awesome. Huge hit with me and both boys. Read More

Well this is everything it should be but I don't think it's 5 stars! A neat way to make whatever flavour you like but make sure you think about it first; Kiwi Milk may not be so great:-) I made Raspberry and plan on trying Grape and Orange. Thanks for the recipe! It sure takes a lot of sugar. P.S. This stuff could be great on pancakes too. Read More

I've been making this syrup for ages (didn't realize there was a recipe posted for it until now). We've always used it in water - it takes up less room than a pitcher of Kool-Aid. We keep it in those plastic non-dairy creamer bottles with the pouring spouts. I haven't tried it in milk yet though but I think I just might now. Read More
