Healthy Red White and Blue Popsicles
These creamy Red White and Blue Popsicles are filled with fresh berries, creamy yogurt and are the perfect healthy and festive treat to make for 4th of July, Memorial Day or Labor Day!
Red White and Blue Popsicles
My kids love popsicles on a hot summer day and sometimes it seems easier to just buy a box at the store. But these red white and blue popsicles are super fast and easy to whip up and are filled with healthy and filling ingredients. I always feel so much better when I feed my kids good food.
My recipe is super easy and only has 3 ingredients. A lot of red white and blue popsicles require freezing each layer separately and so they take forever to make. These are a freeze once and done type recipe! These are also so festive and perfect for 4th of July and other patriotic holidays! Strawberries and blueberries together make the perfect natural color combo for all things red white and blue when it comes to food!
Ingredients to make Red White and Blue Popsicles
- Strawberries: fresh, ripe strawberries. Did you know that 1 cup of strawberries has 100% of your daily value for Vitamin C!
- Blueberries: whole fresh blueberries.
- Yogurt: plain or vanilla Greek yogurt.
- Popsicle Mold: This is my very favorite mold!
How to Make Red White and Blue Popsicles
These are super easy to make and you can make them two different ways depending on how you want them to look.
Rinse your strawberries and blueberries and pat dry.
You can either slice your strawberries for a more whole fruit look, or chop them for a layered look.
If you are using plain Greek yogurt, you can mix in a little maple syrup to sweeten up the popsicles. If you are using vanilla, no sweetener is needed.
If you are going for the layered look, add chopped strawberries in the bottom of each popsicle mold. Then yogurt, then blueberries and then repeat. If you want the whole fruit look, add yogurt about 1/4 of the way up the mold. Place strawberries and blueberries in the mold and arrange with a popsicle stick. Add more yogurt and berries until the popsicle mold is full. Add popsicles sticks to each mold.
Freeze until solid which will take about 6 hours. Enjoy!
Tips For Making Healthy Red White and Blue Popsicles
In season strawberries and blueberries have the best sweet delicious flavor and will really make your popsicles taste amazing.
Using a good popsicle mold is the key to making good homemade popsicles. I really like this one because it has the option of reusable sticks or disposable.
The fat in the yogurt will make these popsicles super creamy. If you use lowfat or nonfat, they will be more icy.

You should submit these pops to the food fight feature!! (Bring any other ice cream or fruit pops you have 🙂 )
i live in jamaica so do you think i could use pineapple for yellow, kiwi for green and blueberries for black and use
the same yogurt
Was wondering if you let the berries macerate a bit with some citrus (squeeze of an orange), if that would provide enough liquid to freeze instead if the water? Maybe to give it a little extra flavor? Just a thought….let me k ow what you thi k… love your recipes and tips! !!
That’s actually a great idea. We’ll try it and let you know. It should work great though in my opinion, and be sweeter!
what are the best types of moulds for these, looks like a great idea for the kiddies
