Monster Juice – a kid friendly drink just in time for Halloween. Use Popsicles to make it fun and festive!
I can’t believe that Halloween is right around the corner. My son still wants to go trick or treating this year. It seems like it will come to and end very shortly, so I will savor the last years of him being a kid. He still asks that I make him breakfast that looks like a pumpkin on Halloween. This year he wants to be Captain Kirk to go trick-or-treating. Pretty impressed he actually picked out a costume that wasn’t a sports player!
This year I am making monster juice to help celebrate! Popsicle® is an easy go-to dessert, but I am putting a little twist on them and using them in a drink. You can use whatever colors you want to make this drink. I used purple and green as fun Halloween colors, but you could use red to be like blood. Or orange…because you know, pumpkins.
Gummy worms and candy eyes make for fun decorations to really make the monster juice come to life. This year popsicle came out with a bunch of fun new varieties including Tropical Paradise flavors, Sugar Free Red Classics, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles™. So you can flavor your drink and give it any look you like! Perfect to have while you are caving pumpkins and getting ready for the holiday.
I can see making this for a kids Halloween party at school. Use clear plastic cups, and let the kids pick their color and how they want to decorate. Have gummy worms, sour gummies, gummy fish, candy eyes and anything else you can think of. It would definitely be the talk of the school!
I used sprite for my Halloween drink, but you can really use any clear drink you like. I think even apple juice would work. As the popsicles melt it chills the drink and gives it a fun color. To make a grown up version I would use a slightly fruity white wine. Popsicle has been around since 1905. It is a classic that both parents and children love! Make your Halloween more fun this year, and use Popsicles to help celebrate!
