My five year old daughter is still fascinated by Disney’s Frozen movie. We watch the movie when she isn’t feeling well (and when she is). Recently, she was under the weather. One big concern for me when she isn’t feeling well is hydration and easily giving her medicines when she is already cranky.
That is where my easy popsicle recipes come into play.
This time I made one that was specifically for rehydration but is reminiscent of Pea’s favorite movie.
I do not regularly give my children gatorade or powerade because of the sugar content and because they are meant for rehydration and NOT as a casual kid’s drink.
When they are ill or we are at Disney sweating in the heat, I make an exception to my rule.
I water it down though…
which gave me this great idea for an easy popsicle recipe.
Easy Popsicle Recipe for Frozen Popsicles
All you need:
Blue and Purple Electrolyte Sports Drinks
Very cold waterPopsicle Mold
Shallow plastic container
Two plastic baggies
Pour blue drink into a shallow plastic container until it is about an inch in depth.
Pour purple drink into a shallow plastic container until it is an inch deep.
When it is frozen, place the sheet of blue ice into a ziploc bag and the sheet of purple ice into a different ziploc bag.
Bang each plastic bag against the table until the sheet of ice is broken into pieces.
Fill the popsicle mold wells up with a mix of both colors.
Fill the wells with very cold water.
Put the tops on the popsicle mold and freeze completely.
Pea was delighted to have Frozen popsicles and I was happy that she was getting in fluids after a fever. The water was a perfect complement to the sweetness of the powerade.
I did want more pronounced “fractals” so I am still working on another variation of a “Frozen” Popsicle. But, my daughter really loves these popsicles and my son loves that they aren’t pink!
