Hi everyone! It’s Annette from Tips From a Typical Mom Blog. I’m so excited to be guest posting here on Over the Big Moon. Thanks for having me over to play, girls!
I love making fun and colorful treats for any holiday and the 4th of July is no exception. But, it can’t just be any treat. It needs to be something that helps us cool off. It’s really hot here in July and we always are looking for ways to cool off. These 4th of July Ice Pops are the perfect treat. And what’s better? They are super easy! Oh and before I forget – make sure and enter the giveaway at the end of this post for a chance to win $100 Amazon Gift Card!
All you need to make these cute red, white and blue popsicles is Kool-Aid, Vanilla Yogurt and Milk. Easy Peasy!
Your kids and all the neighbor kids will love them. I made these for an end of school party my neighbors where putting on and all the kids devoured them.
4th of July Ice Pops
- 1 packet Cherry Kool-Aid plus ingredients to make the drink
- 1 packet Blue Raspberry Kool-Aid plus ingredients to make the drink
- 2 cups vanilla yogurt
- 1 cup milk
- small paper drinking cups
- popsicle sticks
1.) Make the Kool-Aid according to package directions.
2.) In each cup, pour the blue Kool-Aid filling each cup only about ⅓ full. Freeze for at least 2-3 hours!
3.) Mix the yogurt and milk together in a bowl with a whisk until smooth. Pour in each cup until ⅔ of the way full. Freeze for about an hour or two or until the yogurt mixture is firm enough to hold up a popsicle stick. Add a popsicle stick to each cup and freeze for about another hour.
4.) Pour the red Kool-Aid in each cup until almost full. Freeze until completely firm. Usually over night.
5.) Remove from cups by peeling the cup off the popsicle. Don’t use hot water to slide the cup off because this causes the red to bleed onto the white.
6.) Enjoy with your family and friends!
I hope your family has an incredible Independence Day! Please check out my other helpful posts on my blog.
