Red White and Blue Popsicles
This just reminds me of so much of summer time treats. Living in South Florida, we have 3 types of summer weather, hot, super hot and scorching hot. So why not have these SUPER REFRESHING treats for your kids to stay hydrated (and you)?
You can even make them calorie conscious and sugar free! I'm SERIOUS! See below for some great tips. So why not have these ready to go in the freezer for the kids to grab and go?
They are super easy to make and they can even choose different colors and flavors for other festivities or just for fun. These Red White and Blue Popsicles are great for the 4th of July or Labor Day that's right around the corner.
Afraid of them dripping it everywhere and making a sticky mess? Try taking the cake size appetizer size paper plates and put the bottom of the Popsicle stick, so when they drip, it will most likely catch on to the plate instead of all over your floor or their clothes.
Or, just have a pool party or a sprinkler party so they can run around, quench their thirst with these cool and delicious, healthy Red White and Blue Popsicles and rinse off the drips. They will also burn off some of that summer energy and sleep like a baby at night!
Check out these pro tips for making this super fun Red White and Blue Popsicles Recipe for 4th of July!
I used Power Ade in the following flavors: Fruit Punch, White Cherry and Mountain Berry Blast. But you can use any flavor or color that you choose.
You can actually buy sugar free or "zero sugar" Power Ade in these colors, so you could make a very tasty, healthy calorie free refreshing dessert, too!
This is certainly a make ahead so it freezes solid! (The kids will probably ask you 100 times if they are done freezing so they can eat them already. Which is why I recommend making several batches of these Red White and Blue Popsicles with my make ahead tip below)
Make ahead tip: Make several, batches and remove the frozen Red White and Blue Popsicles from the molds and wrap them tightly in plastic. Then place your frozen, wrapped Red White and Blue Popsicles in a zip-lock bag, or layer on wax paper and place in a seal-able storage container to save space in your freezer.
You can also throw them in an ice chest and take them to beach, park or to a friends house!

Another fun and creative idea is for the kids to let them write or draw on the bottom of the popsicle sticks and or you can also have them decorate and draw on the small paper plates, so they can show off their creative side and it will give them another fun summer art project to do.
Anything to keep them busy during the summer days, even showing off their creative sides, is a big go to so they don't get bored and drive you insane. I always love the popsicles with the corny jokes on the end. They make a popsicle even more fun than they already are.
