I don’t know about you but when I think of summer, I think of food and drinks. Do you all agree? I love to host picnics at my house but I also don’t have a lot of time to spend in the kitchen to prepare. Thankfully, Kool-Aid has it covered for all of us to host parties and supply a delicious and easy drink, simultaneously. I have been a Kool-Aid fan for many years but now they have Kool-Aid Easy Mix products that allow you to serve and enjoy. Seriously…What could be better?!
Since the hot weather is finally upon us, I decided to head to my local Walmart to purchase some of the Kool-Aid Easy Mix products in three delicious flavors-Cherry, Tropical Punch, Grape. I readily found them in the drink section and stocked my cart with them. What I love about these awesome Kool-Aid Easy Mix products is they provide me a way to provide a quick, easy, and convenient way to make a drink. All you have to add is simply add water and you will have the perfect drink for those hot summer months coming up!
I knew this would be my drink of choice this summer because not only is it delicious but it provides 50 percent less sugar than leading soda brands. A score if you ask me! It will also allow you to make a glass of it or a pitcher of it, if you want to section out for the week( makes 6 quarts or 3 pitcher).
Since I bought so many of these, I decided to try out a new recipe that I experimented with, to incorporate the Kool-Aid Easy Mix and cake. Sounds delicious?! If you said yes, you are correct. It is a superb recipe and one that I like to call Kool-Aid Rainbow cake!
Kool-Aid Rainbow Cake
-2 containers of the Kool-Aid Easy Mix
-1 container whipped topping
– 6 eggs
-1 cup vegetable oil
-1 cup water
-2 ready made cake mixes
1. Take each of the two ready made cake mixes and put each in separate bowl. Add 2 eggs, 1/2 cup oil, 1/2 cup water (or follow ingredients on your package) and stir. Do not stir to full consistency till later.
2. In small bowls, pour 1/2 cup of each of the three flavors of Kool-Aid Easy mix. Do this twice. You should have a total of 6 bowls- 2 bowls with each of the Kool-Aid Easy Mix (Cherry, Tropical Punch, Grape).
5. Now add the same color bowls together. The reason I did this was I found each bowl to be too liquidity so I combined each of the same colors to have a total of three different colored bowls, each with a separate color.
7. Bake for 35 minutes at 325 degrees F. Once finished let cool for 30 minutes.
This cake came out perfect and was a hit with my whole family. With the summer coming up, I can’t wait to serve this cake with a nice glass or perhaps a pitcher of the Kool-Aid Easy Mix. So easy…Yet so refreshing. There is no need to spend a lot of time in the kitchen to serve wonderful drinks and food. Simply buy some Kool-Aid Easy Mix and you are on your way to having the perfect and refreshing drink all spring and summer long!
