Whats on your 4th of July menu?

Fourth of July planning is in full effect. Every year we make sure that we have homemade ice cream to enjoy as we watch the town’s firework display. This year will be no different but I thought I would add another option to the list. Why not some red, white and blue popsicles made from fresh fruit?

Not only are these popsicles delicious but I made them sugar-free so that Grammie could enjoy them too. Sugar-free, fresh fruit, ice cold, deliciousness AND in patriotic colors – pish, I’m set!

Now if you do a simple “red white and blue food” search on Pinterest, you’re going to see some day-glo treats out there.  I’m all for national pride, but not with blue jello and red dye.  These popsicles are actually made with fresh ingredients, so you can feel good about showing your colors , and eating them too.  I use fresh summer strawberries for the stripes, yogurt for the white, and blueberries for the patch of blue.

Old Glory never tasted so good!
