Earlier this month I blogged about Morgan's rainbow themed birthday party. And I promised I'd share the rainbow slush soon. Guess what? I'm finally ready to share! It's really easy and inexpensive, and the kids loved it. So here goes. You will need:
Ice Pops, a trifle bowl, scissors, a fork & a small bowl. I got my ice pops at Walmart for $2.48 (they are $1.50 now at my store!).
Seperate by color. In these packages there are some colors with two shades, like green and yellow, and then pink and red. I mixed the similar colors together.
Cut open your tubes and empty into your bowl.
Next you will take your fork and smash them up so there are no big chunks. You want to try & get it as soft as possible so it spreads evenly.
Empty the contents of the bowl into your trifle bowl. (notice my little helper sitting on the table?)
Use your fork to smooth it down evenly. Then you will just repeat with each color. Make sure you put the trifle bowl in the freezer between layers so the colors don't mix.
You can see that my blue kind of disappeared into the purple because I waited too long to put it in the freezer.
And there you have it! I told you it was easy! I took it out of the freezer a little before I was ready to serve it, so it could soften up just enough to be scooped out. It was a big hit so I will definitely be making this again. Oh, and make sure that when you are done with it, if it's been sitting in the freezer for awhile (like I don't know, a week?) so LET IT THAW before trying to clean it. I tried to hurry things along with hot water, and needless to say, the trifle bowl didn't make it. Oops!
