Sprite Popsicles – A “Spritesicle” Full of Surpriseson July 23rd, 2013 Posted in Sweets
It’s summer, and living in a house made of wood with no A/C can sometimes be hot, very hot. So other than turning the fans on and opening the windows I’m always up for something cold to munch on.
This time I decided to surprise the kids and make them a “Surprise Popsicle”; why surprise? Well, other than the fact that they didn’t know I’m making these, the popsicles also had surprises in them.
Strawberries, Blueberries and gummies (made from natural fruit with no additives). The only thing I am still trying to figure out is what juice I can make that is totally clear and see-through so the kids can see the surprises in the Popsicle.
So in this instance, although I did use fruits and natural gummies, I had to go ahead and use Sprite as well. Not as healthy as I would like it to be but it’s only for this time and has no food coloring in it so it’s not as bad as any other soft drink.
This was so easy to make and the kids were super excited. They call it “Spritesicle” and now wouldn’t stop asking for it.
These “Spritesicles” are perfect on a hot summer day and use minimal ingredients. Just perfect!
