Starting with the red popsicles, place all of the ingredients except the liquid into a blender and puree until smooth. Add the liquid as needed to get a pourable consis- tency. Place each color mixture into its own bowl or piping bag. Repeat this procedure with all the other colors.

In color order, spoon, pipe or pour an even amount of each color mixture into the popsicle molds, layering each color evenly into each mold. Freeze until solid, up to 4 hours or overnight.

To remove the popsicles from their mold, run the molds briefly under warm water.
