Love popsicles? Love a fruity, refreshing punch? Try making popsicle punch! Everyone can choose their own flavor!
I was sitting in the sun, thinking about punch the other day. I was thinking about how you never really get to have punch unless you make a ton of it in a big punch bowl~ which sends it into the “only at a big party” category of treats. I started thinking about how much fun it would be if you could make a single-serving punch, and suddenly—POPSICLES!!!!!! A little bit of Sprite, maybe a bit of pineapple juice and a POPSICLE! Choose your flavor, pick your punch!
I had to run to the store and get popsicles to try this little experiment, and YUM!!!!!! YUM! YUM! YUM!!!!!!
I loved the plain popsicles- beautiful colors and delicious fruity punch.
THEN, I tried the popsicles that have the ice cream filling… you know, these:
So much creamy, fruity happiness in one little mug…. well, two little mugs because I had to try a couple of flavors:
That orange punch? Like a creamsicle in a cup….! Unbelievably good!!!
Here’s how I did it:
- Sprite (or another lemon-lime soda)
- Pinapple (or another fruit) juice
- Fill a cup about 1/2 full of soda (leave room for the popsicle- the ice cream ones foam up a bit)
- Add juice to taste- I added about 1 part juice for 4 parts soda.
- Place a popsicle into cup and stir to dissolve
My thoughts: You can make individual cups of punch, or make the base punch in a big punch bowl (just the soda and the juice) and set a cooler full of popsicles out for people to choose flavors from. I just made a cup of punch with a frozen juice bar— oh my. So yummy! The possibilities are endless!!!! Enjoy! ~r
