As a kid, I can always remember being excited seeing my mother making Kool-Aid Fruit Juice for us on a hot summer day. There was something so refreshing about Kool-Aid and my brother and I could often be found fighting over which flavor we wanted her to make! I’ve never been big on carbonation or soda. so Kool-Aid was definitely my drink of choice in that department. Flash forward 25 years and here I am today, celebrating summer with a special Kool-Aid Fruit Juice treat…Rainbow Popsicles!!
How to make Layered Rainbow Popsicles
These babies are so pretty and fun to make, albeit a tad time consuming. They’d be PERFECT for a Rainbow Themed Party or get together! It’s a pretty simple idea, the time consuming part is mixing up the colors and allowing for freezing time.
You’ll want to pick up a pack of plastic popsicle makers. I found some for under $5. From there, you want to get started making your Kool-Aid flavors. Since you obviously don’t need the FULL pitcher of Kool-Aid I purchased six colors for 20 cents each packet and experimented with the amount of water and sugar I needed for each.
Once it’s mixed up you’ll see that I added a little bit of each color to the layer of popsicle and then placed in the freezer to freeze. It doesn’t take too long for each layer to freeze enough that you can move onto the next. But I would recommend making these in larger batches to make it worth your time.
I added a little of each flavor at a time trying to make all of my layers the same width. After added the purple/grape layer you’ll put your popsicle sticks into them and let them REALLY freeze good before removing them from their holders.
Yummy, tasty, summer treats! Enjoy!
