These Patriotic Popsicles are made with strawberries, blueberries, coconut milk, sugar, plain yogurt, and food coloring.
Don’t they look absolutely patriotic? Feel more American and get the vibes right with this easy and delicious 4th of july dessert.
Whenever I am hosting a pool party for fourth of July? I just cannot skip these cute little red, white, and blue popsicles.
My kids love them. I love them. And, trust me, I am known around the block as the lady who makes the best Red, White, and Blue Popsicles on the Fourth of July.
My favorite memory of these Popsicles are from the time when I used to date my husband. Both of us have this tradition of going to the beach to watch the fireworks and enjoy some popsicles.
That year, we were doing the same thing. I was enjoying the fireworks and then I don’t know from where, I see him standing in one knee with a ring! ??
That was the time he proposed to me. ?
Since then 4th of July, Summers, Popsicles, Fireworks, Beaches have a special significance in my life.

Summers are like those times when the kids are at home. You can stay out late at night. You get to enjoy grilled food. Then there’s Mother’s Day (a day that I am more excited about than my Birthday ?), there’s Father’s Day and of course there is 4th of July.
Here are some of my favorite 4th of july recipes:

How to Make Red White and Blue Popsicles
This easy 4th of July Popsicle can be made in just few easy steps.
- STEP 1: Cut up the Strawberries
No rocket science here. Just hold the stem and cut strawberries into thin slices. You’ll need about 1 cup of sliced strawberries.
- STEP 2: Blend the Strawberries
You can use any blender that you have. Put your strawberries in the blender. Add the strawberry slices in the blender along with some sugar and a teaspoon of water. Blend until smooth. Pour this into a bowl and set it aside.
- STEP 3: Repeat the Process with Blueberries
Do the same thing with the blueberries. Place them in a blender with some sugar and just a little amount of water. Blend until smooth. Pour this into a bowl and set it aside.
- STEP 4: Make the White Layer
Combine Heavy Whipping Cream with some coconut milk. It’s not necessary that you have to use coconut milk. You can use whole milk or almond milk or soy milk or anything else that you have in hand.
- STEP 5: Add more flavors to the layers
Add in a few tablespoons of your creamy white layer to the red and blue layer.
Secondly, at this point you might notice that your blue layer (one you’ve made with blueberries) has become sort of purple. So, just add in few drops of blue food coloring and your blue layer will become gorgeously blue.
Now, Make the red layer bright red. Add few drops of red food coloring and make your red layer (one you had made with strawberries) bright red.
- STEP 6: Pour and Freeze the Red Layer (The one with the Strawberries)
Pour the juicy Red layer up to 1/3rd of the Popsicle mold or a Silicone Mold. Place it in the freezer for 1 hour and allow it to set completely. Wait until the layer is solid enough to not mix with another layer.
- STEP 7: Pour and Freeze the White Layer (The one with coconut milk)
Pour the white layer leaving 1/3rd of the popsicle mold for the top layer. Freeze it for another 1 hour until it is completely frozen.
- STEP 8: Pour and Freeze the Blue Layer (The one with Blueberries)
Finally, Pour the Blue layer all the way up to the top. Stick on the tops and freeze this until completely sets for at least 3-4 hours.
- STEP 9: Remove the Popsicles from the Molds
Take a tall cup of warm water. Dip the popsicles in the cup. This will loosen the popsicle from the mold. Pull out tightly until the popsicle comes out of the mold.
More Red White and Blue Recipes
- Be mindful of the amount of sugar you add. Too much sugar will reduce the fruity taste.
- If using tart strawberries then your red layer might require more sugar.
- You can skip heavy whipping cream with plain greek yogurt. However, I suggest heavy whipping cream since its thick and holds together quickly.
- Don’t forget to mix in some of the coconut-y white layer to the red and blue. It makes it creamier and richer.
- You can use any version of red and blue food coloring. I like light blue because its more appealing to me.
- Make sure you dip the popsicle mold in warm water to remove it easily.
- Raspberries – You can replace strawberries with raspberries if you like them.
- Blackberries – Although blackberries will have a dark black color, but you are anyway using blue food color, so there shouldn’t be a problem. Although, I am not completely sure about blackberries.
- Plain Yogurt – You can definitely replace heavy whipping cream with plain yogurt if you want.
