Patriotic Ice Pops

Looking for something to keep the kids cool this 4th of July weekend. Here is a patriotic and yummy solution. Give the kiddos these Red White + Blue Ice Pops. Here is how to make:

1 cup cranberry juice
1 cup lemonade
1 cup blue sports drink, such as Gatorade

Yields: 8 Pops

- Arrange 8 3-oz. paper or plastic cups on a baking sheet and divide cranberry juice evenly among them. Place baking sheet in freezer and freeze until juice is almost firm, about 1 hour.

- Insert craft sticks into center of slightly frozen juice. (If sticks won't quite stand up straight, you can repositions them when the next layer starts to solidify.)

- Divide lemonade evenly among cups to make a second layer. Freeze until hard, about 2 hours. Pour Gatorade over lemonade layer and freeze until solid, about 3 hours. Gently pull each ice pop out of its cup (it helps to squeeze the cup lightly from bottom) and serve immediately.
