Kara's Party Ideas Summer Labor Day Treats- Slushie Tubes & Raspberry Lemon Pops

With Summer coming to an end I thought I would share my fun and “cool” LABOR DAY TREAT recipes! I made these cute desserts for a rainbow themed birthday party but they would be a hit at any BBQ, party or get together! AND, they are SIMPLE to make!

Find instructions and recipes for my raspberry lemon popsicles & slushie tubes below…


I wanted to come up with a different and fun way to use Gumball Candy Tubes {available in my shop for only $1.25 each} so I thought, “what about slushy tubes!”

These were so simple to make, and the kids LOVED them!

You will need:

1 Cup Water

1/2 Cup Sweetened Kool-Aid Drink Mix

3 Cups Ice

Clear Candy Tubes


1- Place 1 cup water, 1/2 cup of your favorite flavor of Kool-Aid and 1 cup of ice cubes in a blender. Cover and blend on high speed until smooth.

2- Add an additional 2 cups of ice cubes & blend again, until smooth.

3- Pour slushie drink into clear candy tubes & place in a bowl of ice, or serve immediately. Store leftover slush tubes in the freezer. Makes 7 (1/2 cup) servings.

The fun striped paper straws are available in my shop, too.


Everyone loves a good & cold frozen pop! These creamy raspberry lemon popsicles were so yummy…and SO cute, don’t you think?!

Snow Cone Liners available here

Striped Wooden Spoons available here

You will need:

2 Cups Frozen Raspberries

2 Cups Milk

1 Cup Plain Yogurt

2 Tablespoons Sugar

2 Tablespoons Lemon Juice

Flat Cookie Sheet

8 Snow Cone Cups {available in my shop here}

8 Wooden Spoons {the cute striped wooden spoons shown are available in my shop here}

1- Place 8 small plastic or paper cups upright on a flat cookie sheet {child size cups work best}. Put snow cone cups upright inside of the plastic/paper cups {to hold upright while freezing}.

2- Combine raspberries, yogurt, milk, sugar & lemon juice in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

3- Pour mixture into each snow cone cup. Freeze for 2 hours.

4- Insert sticks into center of mixture. Freeze 5 hours or until firm.

5- Peel away top of snow cone cups as shown and serve!

Makes 8 popsicle treats.

I hope you enjoy! Happy Labor Day weekend!
