Fun summer colors inspired this stylish and tasty delight. We’ve used our personalized stir sticks to customize these three layers of flavor Popsicles for any outdoor event. They are an easy treat to make with kids that will visually explain freezing liquids.
We grabbed this great recipe from epicurious.com!Watermelon, Lemonade and Blueberry Ice Pops
2 ½ cups ½ inch cubes seedless watermelon
¼ cup sugarLemon ice:
½ cup water
¼ cup sugar
½ cup fresh lemon juice
¼ cup fresh orange juice
¼ teaspoon vanilla extractBlueberry ice:
2 cups fresh blueberries
1 cup water
5 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1. Clear out a large enough space in your freezer to accommodate the baking sheet that you will use to place your three layer pops on.
2. For watermelon ice: Blend watermelon and sugar in processor until smooth.
3. Place Dixie cups in shallow baking pan. Spoon watermelon puree into cups, dividing equally (scant 3 tablespoons each). Freeze until mixture is almost frozen, about 2 hours. Using your personalized stir sticks (or a regular Popsicle sticks) force the stick into the mostly frozen watermelon ice so it is almost hitting the bottom of the cup. Place baking sheet with cups back in freezer until watermelon ice is solid, about 1 hour longer.
4. For lemon ice: Bring 1/2 cup water and sugar to boil in heavy small saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Remove from heat. Mix in lemon juice, orange juice, and vanilla. Cool to room temperature.
5. Place pan with frozen pops on work surface. Spoon lemonade into cups, dividing equally (scant 3 tablespoons each). Freeze until lemonade layer is solid, about 2 hours.
6. For blueberry ice: Stir blueberries, 1 cup water, and sugar in heavy medium saucepan over medium-high heat until sugar dissolves. Boil until berries are very soft, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes. In small batches, blend the blueberry mixture until smooth (if you have a puree wand break it out and puree mixture all at once in the same saucepan you heated the blueberries in). Mix in lemon juice. Cool to room temperature.
7. Place pan with frozen pops on work surface. Spoon blueberry mixture into cups, dividing equally (generous 3 tablespoons each). Freeze until pops are frozen solid, about 8 hours. (Can be made 2 days ahead. Keep frozen.)
Tear or use scissors to cut cup off each pop; return ice pops to pan and freeze until ready to serve.
