Your children can’t decide which flavor they want the most Maybe a duo-colored or tri-colored lightsaber vegan popsicles with minimal effort! Carefully pour one color at a time into the same mold, minding the sides of the popsicle mold. The mixtures should be thick enough that they can rest on top of each other, with the exception of the blue mixture being runnier.
