Hey guys, It’s Tay! Happy summer week! 4th of July is this Monday, so I am doing DIY 4th of July layered popsicles! These are inspired by bomb pops (the red, white, and blue layered popsicles you see at grocery stores)
- Popsicle Molds
- Blue Drink (Preferably blue Gatorade, but any drink that is super bright blue works perfectly)
- Red Drink (Preferably red Gatorade, but any drink that is super bright red works perfectly)
- White/Clear Drink (I used coconut water, but any drink that is clear colored works perfectly, but I do not recommend using water because it will taste weird with the other drinks)
- Plastic Wrap
- Popsicle Sticks, if your mold doesn’t come with them
Step 1: Start by taking your popsicle mold. If your mold comes with popsicle sticks, take them out of the mold before adding the drinks.
Step 2: take your red drink and fill the popsicle molds 1/3 of the way full. Make sure you have it as close as possible to 1/2 full. Then, add a layer of plastic wrap tightly on top of the molds and poke the popsicle sticks through the plastic wrap and center them. Put these in the freezer for 45 minutes-1 hour or until the red drink solidifies/freezes.
Step 3: Take the molds out of the freezer and take off the plastic wrap, but leave the sticks in. Then, add the clear/white drink into the molds to make the mold 2/3 full. Cover with plastic wrap again and put into freezer for 45 minutes-1 hour or until the red drink solidifies/freezes.
Step 4: Repeat step 3 with the blue drink but fill the molds the rest of the way up. Do not cover back up with plastic wrap before putting back in, and leave them in the freezer for at least 3 hours.
Step 5: Serve and enjoy!
Thanks for reading and Happy early 4th of July! Ps: I actually made these pops this morning and they are AMAZING!
