Cool Down With These DIY Rainbow Gummy Popsicles

When the summer heat finally arrives, things get really hot really fast.

If you're like me, your remedy for the uncomfortably sticky weather is cold food.

Recently, I stumbled upon a colorful and cool (pun intended) DIY rainbow soda pop popsicle recipe that inspired me to hop in the kitchen and whip up a version of my own. Best part about this recipe? It only requires two (yes, two!) ingredients.

Scroll below if you're ready to make this surprisingly refreshing treat.

As I mentioned above, all you need to create these popsicles is two ingredients: Sprite and a bag of gummies of your choice. I chose my all-time favorite type of gummy—Trolli's Sour Brite Crawlers.

In addition to these two items, you also need a popsicle mold. You can get these at virtually any store that sells home good supplies. I picked mine up at the dollar store.

Once you have everything you need, you simply fill each slot of your popsicle mold half-full with your gummies. Make sure to get a variety of colors mixed in so you get the prettiest final product.

Next, carefully fill each slot full of Sprite.

If you don't like Sprite, you can always opt for another soda, just try and pick one that's clear (like Squirt or Mountain Dew) so you can really see the rainbow gummies.

The next step is to pop the lids back onto your popsicle molds and place them in the freezer.

Now comes the waiting game—It took my batch about four hours to fully freeze.

Once you pull those bad boys out they should look a little something like this:

You'll love the taste and feel of the slushy Sprite and the gummy surprise you get in each bite.

All that's left to do is enjoy—nothing is sweeter than a Sprite-filled pop!
