I'm not sure how it happened, but Memorial Day weekend is almost here. Is this year going by fast or what?
With the unofficial start of summer just around the corner, I've been thinking about holidays and parties. Whenever I'm invited to one of these celebrations, I like to bring something festive.
Red, white, and blue sweets are always a hit, not to mention delicious!
This weekend, I'll be serving these easy Red, White, and Blue Popsicles.
These easy Red, White, and Blue Popsicles look super festive, yet couldn't be simpler to make!
There's only four ingredients in these red, white, and blue ice pops ... which is one reason I love them. And the layering process is simple, too.
My favorite thing about these popsicles though is that, except for a little sugar, all the ingredients are super healthy. Who doesn't love a no guilt treat?
You could even swap out the yogurt with a non-dairy substitute to make this easy Red, White, and Blue Popsicles recipe vegan. There are different kinds of vegan yogurt, but personally, I love coconut milk yogurt.
How to make Red, White, and Blue Popsicles
So let's talk about how to make this Red, White, and Blue Popsicles recipe ... it's super easy!
You will need a popsicle mold, of course. I have this Groovy Pop Molds set ... it's affordable, easy to use, and comes in fun colors.
The three layers in this Red, White, and Blue Popsicles recipe are sweetened strawberries, vanilla yogurt, and then sweetened blueberries. Each layer takes minutes to prepare ... zero for the yogurt!
Tip: for ease, I used vanilla yogurt. If you want to control the sugar in your red, white, and blue ice pops more though, use plain yogurt. Sweeten the plain yogurt to taste with sugar, honey, or maple syrup, depending on your diet preferences.
The only thing that requires any patience is freezing the first two layers (strawberries, then yogurt) so they don't blend together. It only takes 30 minutes between layers though, so your short wait will be quickly rewarded.
And honestly, the freezing may not even be necessary since the ingredients are pretty thick. I didn't want to chance it though, since it would have driven me crazy if my layers blended (type A here!)
If you get any filling on the sides of your molds, wipe the molds down before adding the next layer, and you'll have fun red, white, and blue stripes when you're finished. It's that easy.
These easy Red, White, and Blue Popsicles are so cute and patriotic ... serve them for Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, or anytime you're craving a sweet summer treat!
