It’s popsicle season, my friends! What? You didn’t know that the summer season has now unofficially been changed to popsicle season? Popsicles are all the rage in our house. We buy tons from the store but the kids love my homemade popsicles the best. Apparently I make so many that when my daughter was asked in school what her parents did for jobs, she replied that I make popsicles. True story.
No summer would be complete without them and since 4th of July is right around the corner, red white and blue was the obvious choice. A little bit of black/purple got mixed in there as well because we just had to use the freshly picked blackberries that we got from the local U-pick farm.
These popsicles are super easy to make. Because if they weren’t, I wouldn’t make them. I’m all about easy. I do not have time for food that takes a gazillion hours to make and my kids don’t have the patience to wait for it.

Red White and Blue Berry Popsicles
- vanilla yogurt
- popsicle molds
- aluminum foil
- popsicle sticks
wash all fruit
slice strawberries so you have flat slices
fill molds with fruit (the amount of fruit that you need will depend on the number of molds you have)
thin out yogurt with a bit of milk. You want the yogurt to be thin enough so it can be poured into the molds.
pour the yogurt into the molds making sure that all the spaces between the fruit are filled
place aluminum foil over the molds and insert a popsicle stick into each one
freeze for at least 3 hours
to remove the popsicles from the molds, run under hot water and gently pull out.
I used molds from the Dollar Store but this is a similar mold made by Norpro.
These were such a big hit. And guess what? I let my kids have some for breakfast on day. Yes, breakfast! After all, the ingredients are fresh fruit and yogurt. How much more healthy can you get than that? I got promoted to the “super cool” mom level when I suggested popsicles for breakfast. What they DON’T know is that the pantry was bare and I didn’t have any other options. But shhhh, don’t tell.
