Red White and Blue Yogurt Freeze Pops
Making homemade popsicles is a great way to make memories together in the kitchen during the hot summer months without turning on the oven!
There are so many ways to make a frozen pop; this is just one yummy combination.
I love these Red White and Blue Yogurt Freeze Pops. These popsicles are colorful, delicious and a great way to use fresh berries during berry season. This specific combination is filled with strawberries and blueberries.
It’s a great combination to try…
- 6 oz. PICS strawberry yogurt
- 6 oz. PICS vanilla yogurt
- 6 oz. PICS blueberry yogurt
- 4 large strawberries
- 40 blueberries
- 4 teaspoons honey
- 4 - 5 oz. paper coated cups
- 4 craft sticks
Wash the strawberries and the blueberries.
Cut off the greens from the top of each strawberry. Cut each strawberry in half. Then cut each half into strips and then dice the strips into small chunks of strawberry. Place the diced strawberries into a bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of honey to the strawberries, stir gently so the strawberry pieces aren't mashed. Set the strawberries aside.
Cut the blueberries in half. If the blueberries are large cut them into quarters. Place the cut pieces into a small bowl. Add the remaining two teaspoons of honey and stir. Set them aside.
Divide the strawberry yogurt equally into the four cups.
Distribute the cut strawberries coated with honey on top into each cup. Gently pat the strawberries into the strawberry yogurt, but don't submerge them into the yogurt.
Equally divide the vanilla yogurt into each cup.
Add the blueberries on top of each layer of vanilla, equally dividing the blueberries and gently taping them into place, but not submerging the blueberries into the vanilla yogurt.
Top off each cup with the blueberry yogurt.
Add a craft stick into the center of each cup. Freeze the yogurt cups for at least three hours.
Craft Sticks: Craft sticks can be found in the school supply aisle at your Price Chopper, Market 32 Supermarket or your local craft store.
PICS: PICS is the preferred brand of Price Chopper and Market 32 stores.
Dairy Free: If you have a dairy allergy, simply replace the regular strawberry and blueberry yogurt with a dairy free yogurt alternative that are the same flavor; strawberry and blueberry.
Knife Skills: Young children can use a plastic knife or butter knife to cut the fruit. Encourage children to watch their fingers and finger tips, by watching where they are in relation to the knife when cutting. Also teach them, when possible, to use the ‘bear claw’ grip to hold items to help protecth their hands.
Removing the Cup: Simply take a clean pair of scissors to clip the top of each cup and peel it away from the frozen pop.
Cooking with Kids: Every recipe is filled with life skills that help to encourage children’s confidence in the kitchen. Here are a few to focus on when making this recipe:
- Dicing and knife safety
- Following directions
- Making freeze pops
