Cherry Lime Freeze Pops

Spring means one thing – warmer temperatures! One of my favorite things about the Wilton Treat Pops is using them to make frozen pops! Those hot spring and summer days will never be the same. So stay cool by whipping up your favorite flavors. Cherry and lime are a dynamic duo and super easy to make. You can combine the flavors together or make a striped version like I did!

Step 3 Pour lime popsicle juice into treat pops until 1/3 full. Place in freezer (upright) and freeze.

 

Step 4 Pour in cherry popsicle juice into treat pops until 2/3 full. Place back in freezer (upright) and freeze.

Tips

- Combine layers of fun fruit juices to make a multi-colored striped pop (lemon for yellow, cherry or strawberry for red, blueberry for blue, lime for green, grape for purple, orange for orange, etc). - Ice cream is another fun frozen treat for putting in push-up pops. Try a neopolitan (layers of chocolate, vanilla, and strawberry). - Decorate your treat pops with stickers or ribbon!
