When thinking of and planning for Fourth of July festivities, a few things come to mind: Family and friends, time-crunched-stress, and heat!

It’s pretty much inevitable that you will be spending your time outdoors on the Fourth of July. With these red, white, and blue frozen yogurt pops they will, not only give you a treat in a snap, but will quench that need for a cool treat on a hot day. Fresh fruit and yogurt are light and refreshing ingredients that will please family and friends of all ages and wont leave you with that heavy feeling, so you still feel great and energized for those late night fireworks. What you will need:

  • Vanilla yogurt
  • fresh, rinsed, strawberries and blueberries (or any other red and “blue” themed fruit: strawberries/cherries/pomegranate, blueberries/blackberries)
  • A Popsicle mold
  • plastic baggies
  • knife
  • Popsicle sticks

Using two large plastic baggies, fill each with vanilla yogurt (about 1 cup each- depending on how large or small your Popsicle molds are. ) In one baggie, toss in a hand-full of your “blue” fruit (blueberries, blackberries, etc.) press out air, and seal closed. Using your hand squish the bag around releasing some of the blueberry/blackberry juices. Cut off one corner of the plastic baggie creating a make-shift piping bag. Pipe the “blue” yogurt into the bottom 1/3 of your Popsicle mold. The piping bag will ensure you get nice clean separations between colors and when you’re done; toss the bag and you have virtually no mess to clean up! Next, cut off the corner of the baggie containing the vanilla yogurt. Continue filling the remainder of the Popsicle mold with the plain vanilla yogurt. Slice the green tops off the strawberries and slice the strawberry into thin slices. Poke the strawberries slices into the top third of the Popsicle mold, leaving some of the strawberry sticking out (only for ascetics.) Poke Popsicle sticks down into the center of the yogurt. The yogurt is firm enough to hold the Popsicle sticks into place. Freeze until solid and enjoy.

Tip: To easily release frozen Popsicles from their mold, run the outside of the mold under hot water for a few seconds until the popsicles wiggle free. Tip: No popsicle mold? No problem! Use mini Dixie cups, small Jello molds, ice cube trays, etc.
