I bought a popsicle mold a couple of months ago because the price was marked down so far that it was practically free and as I was buying it I thought, “I’ll probably never use this thing.” I couldn’t have been more wrong! Aside from making my Chocolatey Fudgesicles at least a hundred times, I’ve also been making a lot of fruity popsicles. One of the best things about the popsicle mold? It’s red, white, and blue!
Which inspired me to make red, white, and blue popsicles! OK, so they’re actually more like red, beige, and indigo popsicles, but close enough, right?
With the temps up in the 90s and 100s, I try not to spend too much time outdoors because I tend to turn into a puddle, and even indoors our AC is always running to keep the house cool. I don’t mean to complain because I really do like Summer, but I find that I need constant help cooling off and these babies definitely do the trick! You can even see from the pictures how hot it is outside: I rushed out to take these pictures and within under a minute, the popsicles were already melting. So what’s a girl to do with melting popsicles? Why, eat them of course! And once I ate two, I had to eat more. I can’t stress how amazingly delicious these popsicles are! They’re a wonderful mix of sweet and tart and the flavors are perfect together. Not to mention, they’re completely healthy and so easy and fun to make!
So, if you need a nice, cool, healthy treat during the day–or to take with you while watching fireworks–just whip up some of these popsicles! Don’t have a popsicle mold? No problem! Just use small plastic cups, shot glasses, muffin tins…whatever you’ve got lying around the house!
I hope everyone has a fun, relaxing, and sweet 4th of July
- 6-7 large strawberries, hulled and chopped
- 1 large or 2 small bananas, cut into chunks
- 1 cup blueberries
- 1-2 Tbs. almond milk
- ½ lemon
- ¾ tsp. powdered stevia
- Place the strawberries into a food processor. Add a squeeze of lemon and ¼ tsp of stevia and blend until liquified.* Pour the strawberries into your popsicle mold, filling each cup up to ⅓ full. Place in the freezer while you prepare the next level.
- Rinse the food processor and place the bananas into the bowl of the clean food processor. Add a squeeze of lemon, a ¼ tsp. of stevia, and 1 Tbs. of almond milk and blend until liquified. Add more almond milk as needed. Remove the popsicle mold from the freezer and layer the banana mix on top of the strawberries, filling the cups to ⅔ full. Place back into the freezer.
- Rinse the food processor again. Place the blueberries, a squeeze of lemon, and ¼ tsp. stevia into the bowl of the food processor and blend until liquified.* Remove the popsicle mold from the freezer and fill the cups with the blueberry mixture. Place the popsicles back into the freezer for at least 3-4 hours to allow the popsicles to harden.
- When you’re ready to enjoy a popsicle, remove the mold from the freezer and run under warm water for 10-20 seconds. Enjoy!
