Healthy Firecracker Ice Pops!

Firecracker Ice Pops with Blueberries and Strawberries

For kids, summer is a time for a lot of things – playing outside, vacations, lemonade stands, and BBQs. When I was a kid, one of my favorite things about summer was the popsicles!

Of course, they weren’t the healthiest treats, which is why we’re sharing this recipe from BrownEyedBaker.com. These firecracker pops use fresh fruit and yogurt, making them both tastier and healthier than what you’ll get at the grocery store!

Ingredients
– Strawberries (2 Cups)
– Blueberries (2 Cups)
– Plain Yogurt (3/4 Cup)
– Heavy Cream (4 1/2 Tbsp)
– Granulated Sugar (7 Tbsp)
– Lime Juice (6 Tbsp)

Let’s Get Cooking!
Part 1: The Strawberry Topper
We’ll be starting the popsicle with the red layer right at the top!

Step 1: Hull the strawberries, cut them in half, and give them a thorough rinse.

Step 2: Puree the strawberries with 2 tbsp. of sugar and 1 1/2 tbsp. of lime juice.

Step 3: Put a fine mesh sieve over a bowl and pour the puree through it. Make sure you press down on the puree to get as much liquid as possible. Toss the solids when you’re done.

Step 4: Pour in the filtered puree into a popsicle mold. You want about 1/3 of the ice pop to be made of this strawberry layer.
Step 5: Pop the popsicle mold into the freezer for half an hour.

Part 2: The Sweet Yogurt Center
Now we’ll tackle the white layer in the middle of the popsicle.

Step 1: In a bowl, whisk the cream and yogurt with 3 tbsp. of sugar and 3 tbsp. of lime juice.

Step 2: Pour the mixture into the popsicle mold. As before, you want to fill another third of the mold.

Step 3: Pop the popsicle mold into the freezer for half an hour.

Part 3: The Blueberry Base
Finally, we’ll tackle the blueberry layer of this tasty popsicle.

Step 1: Rinse the blueberries and then puree them with 2 tbsp. of sugar and 1 1/2 tbsp. of lime juice.

Step 2: Like with the strawberries, pour the puree through a fine mesh sieve. Make sure you press down on the puree to get as much liquid as possible. Toss the solids when you’re done.

Step 3: Pour the mixture into the popsicle mold. Again, you want to fill another third of the mold. Don’t fill the mold quite to the top, though – leave a quarter inch of space.

Step 4: Pop the popsicle mold into the freezer for three hours.

We hope you enjoy these great treats. Thanks to BrownEyedBaker.com for the great recipe!
