Patriotic Pops

Move over Bomb Pops, these red, white & blue Patriotic Pops are just as fun and a whole lot healthier.

pops

Ingredients:

Red Layer:
1 cup fresh or frozen strawberries
1/2 cup orange juice
1T honey or maple syrup

White Layer:
1 overripe banana
1/4 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup milk

Blue Layer:
1/3 cup frozen or fresh blueberries
1/4 cup orange juice
1T honey or maple syrup

Directions:

Mix the three different layers in a blender, one at a time. Store the white and blue mixtures in the fridge. Pour the red layer into popsicle molds and freeze for at least 30 minutes.

Add the white layer and freeze again (don’t let this layer harden too much because you’ll need to stick the popsicle stick inside of it).

Add the blue layer and the lid and freeze for at least an hour.

Enjoy! Have a safe and happy Fourth of July!
