Disclaimer: Kraft Foods and I have partnered up again this year, and as part of a paid ambassadorship with Capri Sun, I’m bringing you this sponsored post on how to make Capri Sun Fruit Popsicles for the 4th of July festivities. All opinions are my own.
Red, white and blue.
Classic colors for the 4th of July – decorations, clothing, and yes, even food and drink.
This year I want to host the 4th of July and I hope my family and friends are listening. Party at my house and then we’ll all walk to our favorite fireworks spot.
I’m noticing that this holiday has a lot of “F”s…..Fourth, Family, Friends, Food and Fireworks. But there’s one more thing I want to add. One more thing that’s pretty necessary here in Texas in July.
Between the outdoor games and grilling and the festivities leading up to the fireworks, staying hydrated is essential. And while simple water will do, it’s more fun to get a bit creative.
So how about some 4th of July Capri Sun Fruit Popsicles?
Red – the raspberries
Blue – the blueberries
White – the Capri Sun Juice Drink
Are you surprised? You shouldn’t be.
Capri Sun Juice Drinks have no artificial colors! They have all the great taste without the added color – that’s ideal in my book.
Oh, and just so you know…..Capri Sun Juice Drinks have no artificial preservatives or flavors either. In fact, I recently headed up to Kraft Headquarters where an announcement was made that showed Capri Sun was going even further in listening to parents everywhere. Capri Sun Juice Drinks have No High Fructose Corn Syrup!
So you can see why Capri Sun was my choice for this 4th of July fun! I didn’t want a bright red popsicle – all the colors are from the fresh fruit added!
I chose the Capri Sun Juice Drink – Pacific Cooler.
To me the flavor says SUMMER!
How to Make Homemade Capri Sun Fruit Popsicles!
Create Popsicle Layers:
While you could put everything in a Frozen Popsicle Mold all at once and fill it to the top, chances are that all the fruit would float to the top. It wouldn’t be as easy to eat or as festive looking. So utilize layers. While this will take much longer, it will give you the best looking popsicles.
Step 1 – Add Capri Sun Juice Drink layer in popsicle mold
Step 2 – FREEZE
Step 3 – Add layer of fruit (just a few blueberries or something similar)
Step 4 – FREEZE
Step 5 – Add more Capri Sun Juice Drink in popsicle mold
Step 6 – FREEZE
Step 7 – Add layer of fruit (just a few raspberries or sliced strawberries)
Add popsicle mold stick/cover – use your molds instructions for best results
Step 8 – FREEZE
IMPORTANT: I recommend freezing popsicles at least 1 hour in between layers for best results
TIP: Run under warm water to help the mold release from popsicle
Step 9 – Enjoy!
