It is almost the Fourth of July, and having red, white, and blue treats is a great way to celebrate! I created this recipe because I thought it was the perfect patriotic snack that is both delicious and super healthy!!!! Plus, who can pass up a good popsicle in the summer heat? I made this recipe for the first time when I had a ton of family over, and the kids LOVED it! So parents... this is an excellent way to sneak some fruit into your kids diets while giving them a festive treat this Fourth of July!
P.S. Adults love them too!!!
I recommend purchasing some popsicle molds if you are going to try this recipe. There are a ton of affordable ones out there! I used the brand Zoku, and they work great! Depending on the size of the molds you use, some of the amounts of each ingredient may differ.
Makes 6 Popsicles
2 cups fresh strawberries (with the leaves removed)
2 cups fresh blueberries
1/2 cup vanilla greek yogurt (my favorite is from the Greek Gods brand)
1/3 cup lemon juice
1 tsp honey, separated
Red layer: Combine the strawberries and 1/2 tsp honey in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a bowl and set aside. Clean out the blender.
White layer: In a different bowl, combine the greek yogurt and lemon juice, and whisk together until smooth.
Blue layer: Combine the blueberries and 1/2 tsp honey in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour the mixture into a separate bowl.
Pour 2 Tbsp of the strawberry, then lemon, then blueberry mixtures into each popsicle mold, and insert the popsicle sticks. Place in the freezer for at least 8 hours and then enjoy!!
I hope you have a wonderful Fourth of July!! Please comment below if you have any questions!
