Red White And Blueberry Popsicles | The View From Great Island  Great for Memorial Day and the 4th of July1

I’ll eventually get striped popsicles out of my system, but with Memorial Day (and the 4th!) coming up, I just had to try these.  You don’t have to be a flag waver to flaunt a little Americana this season.  There’s no food coloring or added sugar in these patriotic treats… just  plump ripe blueberries and raspberries (or strawberries).  Greek yogurt supplies the creamy white stripes.

If you do a simple “red white and blue food” search on Pinterest, you’re going to see some day-glo  treats out there.  I’m all for national pride, but not with blue jello and red dye.   These popsicles are actually healthy, so you can feel good about showing your colors , and eating them too!

Red White and Blueberry Popsicles

Yield: makes 10 popsicles

What You Will Need

  • 1 heaping cup raspberries
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 cup vanilla flavored Greek yogurt

Instructions

  1. Using a small 4 cup food processor, or blender, puree the raspberries until smooth. Set aside.
  2. Do the same with the blueberries. (If your blueberries are super purple, add a little blue food coloring.)
  3. Put the yogurt and each of the berry purees in small measuring cups with spouts. The goal is to thin them just a bit so they are pourable. Use water for the yogurt and the raspberries, and, depending on the color of your blueberries, you can use water, or yogurt if you need to brighten up your 'blue'. Keep these cups chilling in the refrigerator when you are not using them.
  4. To layer your pops, start by pouring a little of the blueberry in the bottom of each mold. The only tricky part to these popsicles is getting the layers in without too much spillage to mar your stripes. Use my photos as a rough guide for how much blue you want. Don't get too fussy, it should look rustic!
  5. Put the mold in the freezer and freeze till firm, at least an hour, or more.
  6. Layer a little bit of yogurt into each mold for the next stripe. You will be able to see through the side of the mold to check your progress. At this point, cover the top of the mold with foil, and insert the popsicle sticks. Make sure to get the stick a little bit into the frozen layer so they will stand straight. Put back into the freezer until solid.
  7. Remove the foil at this stage, you won't need it since the stick is in and you need to layer. Next comes your raspberry stripe, and so on until the molds are filled. Make sure to freeze each stripe until solid before adding the next. Don;t worry if the stripes are uneven, but do try to clean up any dribbles as you go. I used a popsicle stick to scrape down the insides of the mold after each stripe.
  8. Once filled and completely frozen solid, you can un-mold your pops. Fill the sink with hot water. Remove the foil, and immerse the mold just up to the lip, being careful not to let any water splash onto the top. Hold it for 30 seconds, remove, and try to pull the pops out. If they don't slide out, immerse again for just a few seconds.
  9. I recommend keeping the popsicles in the mold until you are ready to serve, or, if you are working in batches, wrap each pop quickly in waxed paper or put into a baggie and put back in the freezer. I don't recommend making these more than a day in advance.

Notes

Be sure to thin your purees, and your yogurt so that you can more easily layer them into the mold. If they are too thick, you will have trouble doing this neatly.

The pure fruit melts fast, so don’t take them out of the freezer until you’re ready to eat them.

Lots of you have asked about what popsicle mold I use.   I use one like THIS ONE because they are sturdy and I like the classic popsicle shape.  I don’t use the plastic top that comes with it, though because it can get stuck when the sticks aren’t perfectly straight.   A simple foil top works best, and I insert the popsicle sticks right through the foil.

  36. Estelle says:

    Hello Sue! I made your recipe yesterday, did a few mistakes (did not wait long enough between each layer) but they will be corrected on my next batch. One problem though, once puréed, my blueberries actually don’t look blue anymore, but more like red/purple. Yours look so blue! Do you have any tip? Thank you! :-)

    • Sue says:

      The problem with blueberries is that there are many different varieties, and each one is a little different in color. If yours are really purple. you can add a few drops of blue food coloring to bring up the blue color. Go slowly and stir well because a little coloring goes a long way!

      • Estelle says:

        Thanks Sue! I’m going to try that, because once frozen, the color turns to be brownish, which doesn’t look very appealing.

        • Sue says:

          The funny thing is, I think it depends on the kind of blueberry you have. There are lots of different varieties in the stores, and they have different color properties.

  43. Tami says:

    Hi! Love the popsicles! I would wrap a little foil around the end of the stick so that when you pour the mixtures it won’t get mall over. Love this idea! Can’t wait to try them…..

  45. Nicole says:

    These turned out absolutely gorgeous! What a fun and festive treat for 4th of July! I’m going to give these a try!

  46. Chelsey says:

    How did you get the fruit in after inserting the sticks without getting it all over the sticks?? I just made these and they came out like yours except the fruits and yogurt is all over the end of the sticks ):

    • Sue says:

      I tried to be careful and avoid the stick as I layered, Chelsey, but it is a bit of a challenge. I thinned the yogurt and the berry purees so that I could basically ‘pour’ them in with a small measuring cup with a spout.

  66. Liz says:

    I ordered popsicle molds right after you posted the first stripes. I didn’t make the stripes, but I have been making a pineapple-coconut blend that totally wiped out my Outshine bar habit …my bedtime snack. However, I think I need to do these red-white and blues – so much fun and perfect flavor combo! I’ve been thinking of adding some yogurt to my pineapple-coconut blend so am now inspired to do that also. Thanks!

  67. Lorie says:

    Just looking at those makes me happy! They scream summer! And thank you for the link and tips to the molds. I will be picking some up so I can make these with my kids!!
