US Flag: Fun Food

4th of July Fun Food from super healthy kids.jpg

United States

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!

Great idea! We’re going to do this with strawberries (in season here now) and yogurt. Perfect for Canada Day this week.

That looks delicious!!!! I love this! The best part though, is that it is healthy and holiday friendly! I am all about some patriotism and healthy food. Thank you so much for the post! -Leandra

I’m from Canada 😉
My aunt is originally from Illinois, so, she always has a big fourth of july party at her house. I think I’ll make a batch of these to take! Last year I made striped blue, white, red, white… jello.

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! !!

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!
