Cool off at your US Independence Day party with these red, white, and blue popsicles.
My brother bought me some new popsicle molds that look like sailboats, so I’ve been playing around with different recipes.
I made these with my friend, Laura, in mind. Her favorite holiday is the Fourth of July. In fact, she likes it so much she even chose it for her wedding date. Pretty cool, huh?
Now, I’m a sucker for the fun shapes of the popsicle molds (as my husband can tell you), but you don’t need them to make this recipe. You can just use paper cups and wooden craft sticks.
Makes about 6 popsicles (depends on size of molds)
about 1 1/2 cups strawberries, washed and cored
about 2 cups of blueberries, washed and stemmed
3 – 5 Tbsp agave syrup, divided
about 6 Tbsp vanilla yogurt (low-fat, no-fat, whole, or soy all okay)
Puree strawberries with 1 to 2 Tbsp of agave syrup in a food processor or blender.
Pour equal amounts into popsicle molds and place in freezer for about 20 minutes. This is creating the top layer of your popsicles.
Puree blueberries with 2 to 3 Tbsp of agave syrup in a food processor or blender.
Pour equal amounts into popsicle molds on top of slightly firm strawberry puree. Place in freezer for another 20 minutes to create the middle layer of your popsicles.
Remove popsicle molds from freezer and spoon in equal amounts of vanilla yogurt to create the final layer of your popsicles.
Put in sticks or tops and place back in freezer to completely firm.
