So far this week we have seen Madeline’s bathroom and bedroom, made fun tissue paper art, and decorated a plain Ikea dresser with pink glitter chevrons. Today however, I am going to show you a twist on one of Madeline’s favorite things. The popsicle. That girl loves her some popsicles. You may remember the Easter egg popsicles I made for her when she was little. Well, today I am going to show you how to make super cute colorblocked pops. These would be great for a party, after school snack, or really just about any time since they are just juice.
The first thing you will need is several different colors of fruit and veggie juice. I made my own with what I had on hand, but you could easily just purchase some at the store.
Here we have blood orange juice, watermelon juice, strawberry juice, carrot juice, pineapple juice, and orange juice.
Next you will fill your popsicle mold abut 1/3 of the way full with one of the types of juices. I alternated the order of the juices that I used so that they would each look different. Pop your mold in the freezer using something to prop the mold at an angle.
Once frozen (about 1-2 hours), you should have something a little like this:
Next you will add the next juice so that the popsicle molds are appx. 2/3 full. Freeze them on the opposite angle to start to create your colorblock look.After about an hour in the freezer, you will want to add your popsicle sticks. After the second layer is frozen, go ahead and add your final juice and fill to the top of the mold. Freeze another 2-3 hours and you are ready to unmold your pops and enjoy.
Now go make some this weekend, enjoy the beautiful weather, and smile to yourself that you got your kids to eat their fruits and veggies without a fuss.
