US Flag: Fun Food

4th of July Fun Food from super healthy kids.jpgThis week we are exploring fun and healthy food that starts with the Letter U!  While this is a tough letter to find food for, it’s timed perfectly with plans for the 4th of July next Monday!  So, why not explore food for the United States of America?

These US Flag pops would make a delicious and healthy 4th of July treat.  I was so excited about making them however, that I forgot to put the popsicle sticks in the mold!  So, they were not only tough to get out of my mold, but they were tough to eat. LOL

We like the colorful nature of the strawberries and blueberries.  There is no need to make these popsicles with artificial colors or fake “juices”.  You don’t even need to waste time making a puree (unless you wanted to).  We used the whole fruit for these.

  1. Layer 1: Chop strawberries finely.  Put 1/2 TBL chopped strawberries in bottom of popsicle mold.  Add enough water to barely cover the berries (Just a few drops at a time). Freeze for a min. of one hour
  2. Layer 2: Spoon out 1/2 TBL plain or vanilla yogurt on top of strawberry layer.  Return to freezer for min. of one hour.
  3. Layer 3 and 4: Repeat steps one and two.  Don’t forget the sticks!
  4. Layer 5:  Fill top of popsicle mold with blueberries.  Fill the rest of the mold with water to cover the blueberries. Return to freezer until popsicles are completely frozen.

Strawberries should be a part of your child’s healthy diet!  Did you know that 1 cup of strawberries has 100% of your daily value for Vitamin C!

what are the best types of moulds for these, looks like a great idea for the kiddies

Amy says:

Thanks Kellie!
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!

kellie says:

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! !!
