Magic Potion

 Want to make your kids a fun little treat and for once not have to worry about counting carbs? I thought that might grab your attention.

It’s true…this “magic potion” is carb-free.

To get started, you need some packets of Kool-Aid. You can let your kids decide what colors they would like. Make the Kool-Aid according to package instructions, using a sugar substitute instead of real sugar.

Pour some of the prepared Kool-Aid into an ice cube tray. I used a different ice cube tray for each color.

Once your cubes are frozen, pop them out and add them to a clear cup. Then pour lemon-lime soda over the top (I like to use Diet Sierra Mist or Lemon Lime Zevia).

As the ice cubes melt, the “potion” will turn different colors and the flavor will change as well.

If you make several different colors of ice cubes, you will likely have a lot of leftovers. To store, I just dumped them in a Ziploc bag and stuck them in the freezer to use for a later date.

While we enjoyed our magic potion as just a fun summery drink, this would also be a great alternative for punch at birthday parties, etc.
