Triple Pop
3 different colored juices
Paper cups
Plastic wrap
Popsicle sticks

Pour one of the juices into a cup until it is one- quarter full. Put the cup in the freezer until frozen. Pour in another kind of juice until the cup is half-full. Tape plastic wrap over the cup and poke a popsicle stick through the plastic wrap so it touches the frozen juice. Freeze again. Remove from freezer and carefully peel back the plastic wrap. Pour in the last kind of juice. Return cup to the freezer. When it’s frozen solid, twist the cup and pull out the juice pop.

Tropical Punch
1 (46 fluid ounce) can pineapple juice
1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
2 liters lemon-lime flavored soda

Combine pineapple juice and orange juice concentrate into a gallon container. Shake to mix and slowly pour in the lemon-lime soda. You may need to let the fizz settle and then return to pouring. This will fill up the gallon. Freeze overnight. Let it start to thaw 2 hours before serving. Serve slushy.

Raspberry Lemonade
12 oz can frozen raspberry lemonade concentrate
3 cups water
3/4 teaspoon lime juice
12 oz. lemon-lime flavored soda
1 cup crushed ice

Combine raspberry lemonade concentrate, water and lime juice. Mix well. Stir in lemon-lime soda and crushed ice.

Berry Citrus Slushie

6 oz can frozen orange juice concentrate
6 fluid ounces water
1 cup fresh blueberries
4 cubes ice

Combine orange juice concentrate, water, blueberries and ice cubes in a blender and blend until slushy.

Chocolate Egg Cream
**These make me think of my grandparents 🙂 **

1/4 cup chocolate syrup
1/2 cup cold milk
2/3 cup carbonated water, chilled

Pour chocolate syrup into large, chilled glass. Gently stir in milk. Holding the carbonated water about 5 inches from the top of the glass, slowly pour into the glass until a thick foam comes to the top of the glass. Using a long swizzle stick, stir the mixture once quickly, make sure the foam does not bubble over the glass. Serve immediately.

    This is an awesome idea! Instead of meat, lets have fruit on a stick make it look pretty, and healthy as well. Love it,

    I have never hear of Chocolate Egg Cream. Sounds amazing. I love doing fruit kabobs for BBQs in the summer. Adds so much to the table.
