Red, White, and Blue Popsicles

Prep Time 10 minutes Cook Time 4 hours

Summer is synonymous with popsicles and there's nothing like a sweet and cold popsicle melting down your chin. When the temperatures heat up it's a common sight to see my daughter and dog sitting outside on the porch covered in a tasty yet sticky mess. These red, white, and blue popsicles are the best of them all. Made with pure fruit and healthy yogurt, this tempting treat is the perfect summer and Fourth of July dessert!

How to make it

  1. In a bowl, stir to combine yogurt and honey. Spoon two spoonfuls of yogurt and honey mixture in the bottom of a 10 count (3 ounce each) popsicle mold.
  2. Place blueberries in a food processor or high powered blender. Process on high until a smooth puree forms, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour the blueberry puree into the popsicle molds, leaving about 2 inches from the top.
  3. Place strawberries into a food processor or high powered blender and process on high until a smooth puree forms, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Pour the strawberry puree into the popsicle molds and fill to the top.
  4. With a popsicle stick or a spoon, lightly stir the layers of yogurt and puree to create a swirled effect. Place popsicle sticks in the center of the molds and place in the freezer. Freeze for 4 hours or until the popsicles are frozen. Remove by running warm water briefly over the molds and pulling gently on the stick. Serve immediately or wrap in wax paper and store in the freezer.
