Layered Juicy Popsicles
Once loaded up with a variety of colours and flavours of juice, get the kids involved in deciding the order of the pour-freeze-pour-freeze routine. It’s always fun once they are done, to see what they look like. And how they taste.
Lemon Raspberry Popsicles
Plop 2-3 fresh raspberries in the tip of each popsicle holder and cover with a pink or red juice. Pop in the freezer for a few hours and finish the top with lemonade.
Blend, half a banana, equal amounts of berries, 4 tablespoons of vanilla ice cream (or yogurt), and enough apple juice to get a pouring consistency. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze.
This Epicurious recipe may sounds strange and is probably for the more sophisticated palates in your party but it is surprisingly yummy; sweet and salty, creamy, but most of all, very lemony. We’ll be making this one again and again in our household. Here's the gist: Whisk 3/4 cup sugar, 5 tablespoons fresh lemon juice, 2 tablespoons grated lemon rind, salt, and 1 2/3 cups buttermilk together. Pour in molds and freeze.
