4th July Ice Pops


Here is a 4th of July treat everyone will enjoy.  Yeah for the red, white and blue.  Make these ice pops ahead of time and when the little kids (or big kids) want a treat, pull these out.  Everyone will be impressed.

Don’t worry if you don’t have ice pop molds.  You can use plastic or paper cups with a wooden craft stick stuck in the middle.  Come on, you know these would be perfect for the 4th of July coming up.

Needed:  ice pop molds or 5 ounce paper cups and wooden craft stick
1 cup whipped cream
1 cup vanilla yogurt
2 cups red kool-aid or red drink
2 cups blue kool-aid or blue drink

Pour your molds or cups 1/4 way full with blue kool-aid,  Freeze until partially frozen.  Mix together the whipped cream and vanilla yogurt.  Divide the mixture into your molds or cups and freeze until partially frozen.  If using paper cup add your wooden craft stick and return to freezer.  Next add your red kool-aid and freeze completely.


Here are my 4th July Pops all ready and waiting.  Who am I kidding, these will be gone before the 4th.  Good thing they are quick and easy to make.  Excuse me while I go enjoy an ice pop.
