Red, White, Blue Popsicles
Recipe written and created by Tracy Shaw of Food Wine Sunshine.
- 1 ½ cups vanilla yogurt
- 1 ½ cups heavy whipping cream
- ¾ cup sugar
- 2 cups whole strawberries greens removed
- 2 cups blueberries I used the bigger package from the store (Net Wt 11oz)
- First make your fruit purees. Add the fresh, clean blueberries to a food processor and blend until smooth. You can use frozen berries, just allow them to thaw first. Put the blueberry puree into a medium size bowl and set aside.
- Add the fresh, clean strawberries to a food processor and blend until smooth. You can use frozen berries, just allow them to thaw first. Put the strawberry puree into a medium size bowl and set aside.
- Now you will make the vanilla base, this will actually act as a base for all 3 flavors. In a medium size mixing bowl whisk together the vanilla yogurt, whipping cream, and sugar until sugar has dissolved.
- Add approximately 1 cup of the vanilla yogurt/cream mixture to the strawberry puree and mix well. Do the same for the blueberry puree and mix well. Leave the remaining vanilla yogurt/cream mixture for the "white" section of your popsicles.
- Now you will start to assemble your popsicles. Fill up your popsicle molds about 1/3 of the way with the strawberry flavor and freeze for 30 mins (just to help it set a bit). My mold came with a nice little funnel to make it easier to add the liquid in. I used a tablespoon to pour the liquid into the funnel so that I could control how much was poured in since I was only filling in 1/3 of the way.
- While you are waiting for each layer to freeze, put the other mixtures in the refrigerator until ready for use. Repeat this process with the vanilla and blueberry flavors.
- After the final layer (the blueberry) insert your popsicle sticks and freeze for 3-5 hours until solid or overnight.
- To remove the popsicles from the molds, you may need to run it under warm water for a few seconds. Gently pull on the popsicle stick.
