Patriotic Popsicles....

Looking to cool off this holiday weekend?  These red, white and blue popsicles will do the trick! 

Beides the freezing time, these take no time to make, and are so festive for all the kids (or adults) on your list!  I used 3 ounce paper cups for these, but you can use yogurt containers or even 5 ounce cups!

With the hot weather we are having here, we will be eating these like crazy!!!!!

Patriotic Pops
Yield: 12 Popsicles
2 cups blue Gatorade (or blue drink of choice)
2 cups of lemonade
2 cups Cranberry Juice (or red drink of choice)
12 (3 oz) disposable cups
12 wooden craft sticks
Fill each of the cups 1/3 of the way with blue liquid. of the blue drink into each of the 12 disposable cups.  Freeze until partially frozen, about 30-45 minutes
Fill each cup another 1/3 of the way with the lemonade.  Add a craft stick to the center of each cup and return to the freezer for another 45 minutes.
Remove from the freezer and pour the red liquid into the rest of each cup, on top of the lemonade.  Freeze until solid.
Run briefly under warm water to remove the popsicles from the cups.
