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.
