Got this great recipe in my email today and wanted to share:

Red, White and Blue Ice Pops

Celebrate red, white, and blue all summer long with these patriotic ice pops. The secret ingredient is a blue sports drink, along with cranberrry juice and lemonade.

  • YIELD: 8 ice pops
  • COURSE: Desserts, Ice Cream/Sherbet 
  • 1 cup cranberry juice
  • 1 cup lemonade
  • 1 cup blue sports drink, such as Gatorade
  • 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.
