Pink and White Striped Popsicles

I grew up in Ontario, but I have a hard time tolerating the humidity in the summer. I’ve never been one to love the heat. In fact, I’ll take cool, crisp weather over a sunny hot day no matter what. Needless to say, when it’s hot and humid out, I am very uncomfortable and looking for ways to keep cool.

Popsicles aren’t just for kids. Though  my kids love eating popsicles anytime of year, there’s just something about eating a cold, flavoured popsicle on a hot day.  I’ll have one or two just to try and beat the heat. They help….a little.

This recipe for Pink and White Striped Popsicles is easy to make and cheaper than buying popsicles at the local convenience store. Plus they are in my favourite colour: pink! You can mix and match flavours and choose whatever you have on hand.

Stay cool everyone!

Put in the freezer for about 30 minutes, until the layer has started to freeze, but isn’t quite solid. Remove from freezer and insert wooden craft sticks.

Return to freezer and freeze until layer is solid.

Add a layer of Strawberry Lemonade Flavored Powerade. Put in freezer until frozen solid. Time will depend on the thickness of the layer.
