Organic and Healthy Red, White, and Blue Popsicles

Easy Red, White, & Blue Pops. Organic, All-Natural, & Healthy Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free

These are actually called Dairy Free Strawberry, Blueberry Creamsicles in our house any other time of the year.

Oh, I should also mention that they are also Vegan, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Soy Free, Nut Free, and Refined Sugar Free.

But on summer holidays? They are just Red, White, and Blue Popsicles….only a lot healthier.

Okay, maybe they are more like magenta, cream, and violet pops. But, hey! That is only because I am working with the wonders of nature’s bounties and NOT working with science derived additives with names like FD&C Blue No. 1 and No. 2, FD&C Red No. 3 and No. 40, FD&C Yellow No. 5 and No. 6, and …you get the idea.

These homemade, healthy, and organic popsicles are made from the natural hues of fresh strawberries and blueberries. And the white creamsicle part comes from Vanilla Coconut Yogurt and Coconut Cream.

So, for a fun and patriotic treat for young and old alike, these frozen goodies may be a perfect way to settle in and watch the fireworks light up the sky.

Dairy Free Strawberry Blueberry Creamsicles

Red, White, and Blue Popsicles

…Only Healthier

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla Creme Stevia (or 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar)
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 1 tsp Lime Juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 16-oz Vanilla Coconut Milk Yogurt, such as So Delicious Cultured Coconut Yogurt (or a Dairy version of choice if not Dairy Free)
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Cream (skimmed from the top of can of full-fat coconut milk)
  • 8 oz Blueberries, Fresh or Frozen
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Creme Stevia (or 1/3 cup Coconut Sugar)
  • 1 tsp Lime Juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 Tbsp Water

Directions:

1.  In medium saucepan, mix together: Strawberries, Stevia (or sugar), Water, and Lime Juice.  Bring to low simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Pour in blender and puree to desired consistency.

2.  Fill each opening in your popsicle molds one-third of the way with the strawberry mixture.  Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set while preparing next step.

3.  In small bowl, mix together: Coconut Yogurt and Coconut Cream.  After 30 minutes, remove molds from freezer and top strawberry mixture with Coconut Yogurt mixture so mold is now two-thirds full leaving enough room to top with final blueberry mixture. Return strawberry-yogurt layers to freezer for 15 to 30 minutes.

4.  While yogurt layer is setting, in medium saucepan, mix together: Blueberries, Stevia (or Coconut Sugar), Water, and Lime Juice.  Bring to low simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes. Pour in blender and puree to desired consistency.

5.  Add as the final layer to the molds and then return to freezer to set for at least one more hour.

May your Holiday be full of glittery skies, dripping in exploding rays of lights, and squeals of laughter….from the children and from you.

    I am going to have to try these as we are now back to dairy free {lactose free} along with gluten free for our daughter. She will love these – have to look into the coconut sugar and coconut yogurt – never used them before.

    • On July 1, 2011 Cook It Allergy Free said

      Hey Brenda!! I hope your daughter likes these! the coconut sugar adds a really great flavor! And I think you will really enjoy the coconut yogurt as well! Happy 4th! ;)

    Beautiful photos as always, Kim! Take as much time as you need for the family…summers only come once a year. And little ones grow up so fast! :) Happy 4th of July!

    • On July 1, 2011 Cook It Allergy Free said

      Aww!! THanks so much, Hallie!! xo And I totally agree that taking time to enjoy summer with the kiddos. They are growing up too fast and it is time to slow down and enjoy the time with them!
      Have an amazing 4th of July, my friend!

    These look amazing! Perfect choice for the 4th.

    • On July 1, 2011 Cook It Allergy Free said

      Thanks Kate! The best part is you can make them way ahead of time, so you are not dealing with them on the 4th!

    Wow, Kim, these look incredible. I made some with just organic juices (I was being lazy), and no yogurt – what a terrific idea to get the white color. The food coloring in the store bought pops has got to be through the roof!

    • On July 1, 2011 Cook It Allergy Free said

      Thanks so much, Jeanette!! The best thing about popsicles is that you can make them with anything that you want to! And I could not believe when I was at the store and i just picked up a box of those bullet pops. There was a gazillion ingredients and they were loaded with food coloring. Bleck!!

    I was planning on trying out a similar recipe this weekend, so I was very happy to see that someone else has already made 4th of July pops with such success! SO much more appealing – and obviously 100% healthier – than the fake-colored ones. Happy 4th!

    • On July 1, 2011 Cook It Allergy Free said

      Hi Dawn! Yup! These are way healthier than those food-color filled ones. And I think they taste way better! ;) Hope you have a fabulous 4th!!

  7. On July 1, 2011 Gail said

    These look fabulous, Kim, and we couldn’t wait to share this post with all of our Facebook fans! Thank you so much for posting this deliciously fun recipe. We are looking forward to making these popsicles and enjoying them with our kids this weekend! Happy Fourth of July!

      Hi Gail! Thanks so much for sharing my popsicles with all of your fabulous Facebook Fans!! These are so awesome with your Vanilla flavored yogurt! My kids both say that the white layer is their FAVORITE part. LOL Hope you and your family have an absolutely wonderful 4th!!! Enjoy the long weekend! ;)

    So festive and pretty too! It’s my hubby’s birthday on the fourth, but here in Australia it’s FREEZING and sleeting over us, so maybe I’ll make these in a couple of months instead!

    Hey Kim, I just wanted to stop by and say that I shared these on All Gluten-Free Desserts last weekend. I know that folks will be enjoying them all summer, but especially when they want pretty, healthy, and delish patriotic treats. ;-) I’m so grateful to you for being a contributor on AGFD! :-)
