Red White and Blue Berry Popsicles

Red White and Blueberry Popsicles #TSRISummer #IcePops #Recipe

Fantastic Red White and Blue-Berry Popsicles make the perfect 4th of July treat!  Cold, refreshing and packed with vitamin C, antioxidants and power boosting protein! Stunning to look at and spectacular to eat.  Kids and adults alike will gobble these up! Simple recipe, fabulously refreshing.

These popsicles are simply delicious and have only 5 ingredients.  Made with fresh fruit, all natural yogurt, honey and your favorite vanilla.  This is definitely a dessert I am proud to feed my daughter and I love to watch her dive into this popsicle.  She eats the center first, the vanilla honey yogurt layer is her first choice.  Go figure.  She knows what she wants!  Which layer is your favorite?

We are having a Birthday barbecue later today to celebrate Chad's Birthday.  Our birthday menu consists of

TSRI's Barbecue Bacon Cheddar Smokehouse Burgers, Grilled Seasoned Fries, Smoky Beer Cheddar Cheese Sauce, and TSRI's Signature Barbecue Sauce.  Add a fabulous amaretto cake with a custard filling and DiSaronno amaretto buttercream icing and you have an amazing Birthday celebration!  Happy Birthday Chad! 

TIP:  Get the most bang for your buck here and use a fabulous vanilla extract.  I love Neilsen-Massey Madagascar vanilla here.  If you have Madagascar vanilla beans they would be amazing here.  Just scrape the beans out of 1 pod and add to yogurt.  The vanilla really carries the yogurt center to a whole new level.

PRINT RECIPE

Red White and Blue-Berry Popsicles
makes 10 popsicles

2 cups plain yogurt, divided
3 tablespoons honey, divided
6 ounces blueberries, washed
6 ounces raspberries, cleaned
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Place raspberries in a small bowl.  Drizzle 1 tablespoon of honey over top and stir to combine.  Set aside.

Place blueberries in a small bowl.  Smash with fork.  Drizzle 1 tablespoon of honey over top and stir to combine.  Set aside.

Leave berries to sit for a few minutes while you prepare your popsicle molds.

Smash raspberries with a fork and mix in 1/2 cup yogurt.  Stir until well combined.  You can blend these in a mini food processor or blender if you would like a really smooth consistency.

Pour about 1 1/2 tablespoons of raspberry mixture into each popsicle mold.  Place popsicles in freezer to slightly firm while you prepare the remaining ingredients.

Smash blueberries well and mix in 1/2 cup yogurt.  Stir well to combine.  You can blend these in a mini food processor or blender if you would like a really smooth consistency.

In a small bowl combine 1 cup yogurt, 1 tablespoon honey and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (or 1 vanilla bean).

Remove popsicles from freezer and divide yogurt between popsicles, filling each to about 2/3 full.

Divide blueberry mixture between popsicles, filling each almost to the top (popsicles will slightly expand when freezing).

Cover molds with aluminum foil.  Poke holes in each slot and place a popsicle stick about 1/2 way in.  Return to freezer for 12-24 hours.

  8. I'm not much of a recipe gal, but when I saw the picture of these I had to check them out - they look SO good, and I was really surprised to see they look like something I could actually make! I don't think I can get molds in time for the 4th, but my kids would love these any time (if I don't eat them all first)!

    1. These are soooo easy Robyn. When my mold is otherwise engaged, I will make my munchkin 'cupsicles'. I buy the little 3 ounce plastic cups at Wal-mart and popsicle sticks in the craft department. They are the perfect size and my husband and I will just eat 2. Enjoy and have a fab 4th!

    2. I feel like a rock star - I've made a couple batches of these and they're SO good! My kids love them, and I feel good about letting 'em eat them because of all the yummy ingredients. I still don't feel good about sharing them, though. Thanks for the tip about the cupsicles - I'll be making those, too!

      I posted today about this recipe and included the pin back to this post, and also added it to my community pin board from my personal recipe board - love it!
