Fourth of July Pops

By Central California Parent

These fun popsicles are a great way to sneak some fruit into your child’s diet. Made with Greek yogurt and fresh fruit, they are as healthy as they are tasty and perfect for a Fourth of July celebration!

  1. In your first bowl, mix together 3 cups of Greek yogurt, 1 tablespoon of honey and 1 tablespoon of cinnamon.
  2. Puree 2 cups of fresh strawberries in a food processor and put the puree in your second bowl. Do the same to 2 cups of fresh blackberries and put that puree in a third bowl.
  3. Now it’s time to fill the popsicles! Let the kids make their own pops by alternating layers of the yogurt mix and the two purees.
  4. Take a knife or popsicle stick and twirl through the layers for a fun swirling effect.
  5. Let the popsicles sit in their molds in the freezer for 8 hours.
  6. When you’re ready to eat the pops, run the mold under hot water for 10 seconds to release the pops and enjoy!
