These red, white and blue popsicles are a festive summer treat. Made with only a few ingredients, including fresh fruit, they are surprisingly easy to make. While this post is sponsored by Florida Dairy Farmers, all opinions and my love of dairy are my own.

Easy Red White and Blue Popsicles

Red White and Blue Popsicles

Homemade popsicles are a fun way to cool down in the summer. Especially in our Florida heat! These homemade red, white and blue popsicles are made with fruit, no food coloring needed. Strawberries are used to the make the red portion of the popsicle, blueberries for the blue and the white…well, no fruit needed there 🙂

Tasty Red White and Blue Popsicles

To make these homemade popsicles you will need a few simple ingredients:

Vanilla Yogurt – you can use store bought or make your own homemade vanilla yogurt
Heavy Whipping Cream
Strawberries – I recommend Florida strawberries, of course, but if they aren’t in season, strawberries from the USA (fresh or frozen) are good too
Blueberries – I recommend Florida blueberries, of course, but if they aren’t in season, blueberries from the USA (fresh or frozen) are good too
Sugar

I told you that you only needed a few ingredients!

Best Red White and Blue Popsicles

The hardest part about making red, white and blue popsicles is that you have to wait for the layers to freeze. And while that’s not hard at all, it’s the waiting! Waiting for the deliciousness is always hard…

So, keep that in mind, if you are making these homemade layered popsicles for a gathering or summer party, you will need to make them for the day before or earlier in the morning. The total time needed for these popsicles to freeze is about 4 hours.

You will allow each layer to slightly harden for about 30 mins before adding the next layer. This will ensure that your red, white and blue layers stay red, white and blue.

Since each popsicle was only being filled 1/3 of the way, I found it easier to just use a tablespoon to add the mixture into the funnel. It was easier for me to control how much was being poured in.

My popsicle mold makes ten 3.5 oz popsicles, I had enough to make all 10, plus an extra 4. I like the smaller size popsicles, especially if we are enjoying them outside with friends, that way we can actually eat the whole popsicle before it melts. How many popsicles you can make with my recipe really depends on the capacity of your popsicle molds, so if you end up with a little leftover like me, either make a few extra or just freeze the leftovers in a freezer-safe container and enjoy a cool treat with a spoon later 🙂

Of course, you can easily make simple strawberry popsicles, beautiful blueberry popsicles, and simple vanilla popsicles, but I think they are more fun layered 🙂 Especially for 4th of July, Labor Day and Memorial Day. Everyone loves a little red, white and blue treat around these holidays celebrating America.

Your homemade red, white and blue popsicles will last in the freezer for about 8 weeks, so feel free to make a double or triple batch so the kids (and parents!) have them on hand all summer long.

Equipment

  • Food Processor or Blender
  • Popsicle Molds

Ingredients

  • 1 ½ cups vanilla yogurt
  • 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 2 cups whole strawberries greens removed
  • 2 cups blueberries I used the bigger package from the store (Net Wt 11oz)

Instructions

  • First make your fruit purees. Add the fresh, clean blueberries to a food processor and blend until smooth. You can use frozen berries if fresh ones aren't in season, just allow them to thaw first.
  • Put the blueberry puree into a medium size bowl and set aside.

  • Add the fresh, clean strawberries to a food processor and blend until smooth. You can use frozen berries if fresh ones aren't in season, just allow them to thaw first.
  • Put the strawberry puree into a medium size bowl and set aside.
  • Now you will make the vanilla base, this will actually act as a base for all 3 flavors. In a medium size mixing bowl whisk together the vanilla yogurt, whipping cream, and sugar until sugar has dissolved.

  • Add approximately 1 cup of the vanilla yogurt/cream mixture to the strawberry puree and mix well.
  • Add approximately 1 cup of the vanilla yogurt/cream mixture to the blueberry puree and mix well.
  • Leave the remaining vanilla yogurt/cream mixture for the "white" section of your popsicles.

  • Now you will start to assemble your popsicles.
  • Fill up your popsicle molds about 1/3 of the way with the strawberry flavor and freeze for 30 mins (just to help it set a bit). *My mold came with a nice little funnel to make it easier to add the liquid in. I used a tabelspoon to pour the liquid into the funnel so that I could control how much was poured in since I was only filling in 1/3 of the way.

  • While you are waiting for each layer to freeze, put the other mixtures in the refrigerator until ready for use.
  • Repeat this process with the vanilla and blueberry flavors.

  • After the final layer (the blueberry) insert your popsicle sticks and freeze for 3-5 hours until solid or overnight.

  • To remove the popsicles from the molds, you may need to run it under warm water for a few seconds. Gently pull on the popsicle stick.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

This recipe made 14 3.5 oz popsicles. My mold is for 10 3.5 oz popsicles, but we had another mold here, so I used that too. How many popsicles you can make will depend on the size of the molds you have. I, personally, like making a bunch, that way everyone can enjoy one at our holiday gatherings.
