Red White and Blue Popsicles

My kids love popsicles on a hot summer day and sometimes it seems easier to just buy a box at the store. But these red white and blue popsicles are super fast and easy to whip up and are filled with healthy and filling ingredients. I always feel so much better when I feed my kids good food.

My recipe is super easy and only has 3 ingredients. A lot of red white and blue popsicles require freezing each layer separately and so they take forever to make. These are a freeze once and done type recipe! These are also so festive and perfect for 4th of July and other patriotic holidays! Strawberries and blueberries together make the perfect natural color combo for all things red white and blue when it comes to food!

Ingredients to make Red White and Blue Popsicles

  • Strawberries: fresh, ripe strawberries. Did you know that 1 cup of strawberries has 100% of your daily value for Vitamin C!
  • Blueberries: whole fresh blueberries.
  • Yogurt: plain or vanilla Greek yogurt.
  • Popsicle Mold: This is my very favorite mold!

How to Make Red White and Blue Popsicles

These are super easy to make and you can make them two different ways depending on how you want them to look.

  1. Rinse

    Rinse your strawberries and blueberries and pat dry.

  2. Slice/Chop

    You can either slice your strawberries for a more whole fruit look, or chop them for a layered look.

  3. Mix

    If you are using plain Greek yogurt, you can mix in a little maple syrup to sweeten up the popsicles. If you are using vanilla, no sweetener is needed.

  4. Layer

    If you are going for the layered look, add chopped strawberries in the bottom of each popsicle mold. Then yogurt, then blueberries and then repeat. If you want the whole fruit look, add yogurt about 1/4 of the way up the mold. Place strawberries and blueberries in the mold and arrange with a popsicle stick. Add more yogurt and berries until the popsicle mold is full. Add popsicles sticks to each mold.

  5. Freeze

    Freeze until solid which will take about 6 hours. Enjoy!

Tips For Making Healthy Red White and Blue Popsicles

Use fresh fruit

In season strawberries and blueberries have the best sweet delicious flavor and will really make your popsicles taste amazing.

Get a good popsicle mold

Using a good popsicle mold is the key to making good homemade popsicles. I really like this one because it has the option of reusable sticks or disposable.

Use full fat Greek yogurt

The fat in the yogurt will make these popsicles super creamy. If you use lowfat or nonfat, they will be more icy.
