Recipe: Red, White, and Blue Icepops
By Lauren Vaughn

These red, white, and blue popsicles, or “ice pops,” are a great way to stay cool this summer. Not only that, but they’re extremely easy to make and can be as healthy as you want (or don’t!) depending on ingredients used.

They’re made like any other popsicle—freezing juices in a popsicle-like shape or mold. I usually use plastic cups with popsicle sticks fastened across the top with string or tape, but if you have molds that works too! The goal here is to use red, white, and blue-colored liquids for each layer, freezing them in three parts for an hour each. 

I usually poor a little bit of cranberry juice for the red, and freeze that for about an hour. I then add about the same amount of lemonade, freezing for another hour. Finally, I use a blue sports drink in order to complete the red, white, and blue pattern, freezing this for an hour as well. The good thing here is you can be as creative as you like—you can use fruit punch, white grape juice, or even melted down popsicles you already have in order to get into the patriotic spirit!
