Right now, St. Patrick's Day is just around the corner, which is such a fun time in my household. We wear our green, pretend like were 100% Irish, and we eat an Irish dish like this one.
My kids usually like to do some type of craft or special food for St. Patrick's Day, too. Making anything rainbow is a fun way to celebrate. These all natural rainbow popsicles are a cute, healthy, and a tasty way to celebrate the day (or any day)!
How to Make All Natural Rainbow Popsicles
It's probably best to make these popsicles the day before, because they take a bit of time to freeze since you're working with layers.
I really like the idea of these rainbow popsicles because there's no artificial dyes or weird ingredients in them. The rainbow in these ice pops is made with cranapple, white grape, and strawberry kiwi juice.
However, you can use any flavor combo you want, just make sure you have a few different colors!
We love these popsicle molds with the larger handles because they are super easy to hold for little hands!
Just be sure not to overfill them!
Or, if you want to create a more nostalgic feel, you can use these reusable silicon ice-pop molds like these.
Take your ice pop molds and fill each of them up 1/4 of the way with cranapple juice. Place upright in the freezer for about an hour before adding the next layer.
Remove the molds from the freezer and pour the white grape juice above the cranapple layer. Only take up another 1/4 of the mold. Place upright in the freezer for about an hour before adding the final layer.
Again, remove the molds from the freezer. Pour the strawberry kiwi juice above the white grape juice layer. Only take up another 1/4 of the mold. The mold should have some room for the liquids to expand as it freezes.
If you fill the molds too high, you will get a mess in your freezer. The crystalline arrangement in frozen water is what causes the mess! Plan ahead, and don't fill your molds up all the way. :-)
Push the stick all the way through all the layers to allow the last juice to fill the hold and solidify for easy removal. Again, place the molds in the freezer for at least an hour. It may take longer depending on the temperature of your freezer.
