Red White Blue Popsicles

Red White Blue Popsicles are the perfect holiday treat when celebrating The Fourth of July, Memorial Day, or Labor Day. These popsicles are made with real fruit and taste amazing! 

Popsicles are the perfect summertime treat and I love that they're super easy to make at home. Popsicles are a great treat to make since they can easily be stored in the freezer, and will last a long time since you're likely not going to eat the entire batch in one sitting.

Red White Blue Popsicles:

These red, white, and blue popsicles are super easy to make with simple and easy ingredients. The "red" layer comes together with a mixture of strawberries, lemon and lime juice, and sugar blended together in the blender. The "white" layer is a mixture of plain whole milk yogurt, heavy whipping cream, lemon and lime juice, and a pinch of sugar. The "blue" layer comes together by blending blueberries, lemon and lime juice, and a pinch of sugar together in the blender. 

The end result is a sweet, tangy, and fruity popsicle that everyone will love!

Kitchen Tools You'll Need for Red White Blue Popsicles:

Making popsicles does require a few specific cooking tools that you'll want to make sure you have on hand before you get started. A good blender is a definite must. I've been using the Kitchen Aid one linked below for years and have never had an issue with it. It's definitely my favorite high speed blender! 

You'll also need a fine mesh metal strainer to strain away all the seeds in the popsicles. The rubber spatula will also come in handy during this process to press all the liquid out of the strainer and into a bowl below. 

Popsicle molds are also very important for this process. I have linked below to the exact set that I used to make these popsicles. If you want these popsicles to look like the traditional rocket shaped red, whiter, and blue popsicles, you could also try this rocket shaped popsicle mold. I have not used this mold though so I can't speak to how well it works. It is less than $8 though and looks like it has pretty good reviews.

How Long Do Homemade Popsicles Last? 

Homemade popsicles can last in the freezer for up to six weeks for best results. Popsicles should be stored in an airtight container and not in the popsicle mold. Plastic airtight containers such as these Rubbermaid ones will work great, or you can toss them into a freezer bag with all the air pressed out of it as well.
