Tricolored Popsicles for the Fourth of July

My kids have one request for our Fourth of July cookout—Tricolored Popsicles made with strawberries, yogurt, and blueberries. They are easy to make, the kids love them, and I know they are super healthy! I’ve made these with whole milk kefir, yogurt and coconut milk—all of which are good. This year we will be making our popsicles with Snowville Creamery’s whole milk yogurt. This grass-fed yogurt is thick, creamy, and made with three ingredients: milk, cream, live cultures. If you don’t have popsicle molds, no worries, you can use small paper cups and popsicle sticks. They work just as well.

Instructions

Puree strawberries with two tablespoons honey and one tablespoon vanilla extract in a food processor or blender, processing until smooth. Strain strawberry puree through a fine-mesh sieve or cheesecloth (this step can be omitted). Pour half of the strawberry puree into popsicle molds and reserve the remaining puree for the final layer of your popsicles. Freeze popsicles for two to four hours until firm, then prepare the middle layer.

Whisk two tablespoons honey into one cup milk kefir until well-combined. Remove the single-layered popsicles from the freezer and pour the kefir mixture over the top of the first layer. Gently push blueberries into the layer of milk kefir and place popsicles back into the freezer. Freeze popsicles for two to four hours before preparing the final layer.

After the layer of milk kefir has frozen solid, pour the remaining strawberry puree evenly among the popsicles, and return them to the freezer until all the layers are set.
