I filled up our popsicle molds, one layer at a time, with the left over, mashed, and juiced fruit from our rainbow cake yesterday, to make rainbow fruitsicles for today.
Other than the lemon layer, I left the fruit natural, without any added sugar. I turned the left over lemon juice into a small amount of lemonade, by adding sugar, and a little water to it.
I froze each layer just long enough to firm it up, before adding the next fruit, so they wouldn't mix, but not long enough for them to be completely solid, so I could still place the handles, with the sticks attached in, at the last.
The children were divided 50/50 between those who loved them, and those who thought making healthy popsicles was some kind of sick joke. But, they all liked the rainbowy look.
It's great to be a homeschooler.
