Red, White & Blueberry Healthy Fruit Popsicles – a healthy and easy treat the entire family will gobble up! Perfect to make for Memorial Day or 4th of July… or really anytime. 🙂
I’m really not a creative person. Like, really not. But every once in awhile, the urge to create something clever and/or cute strikes me. Like fun red, white & blue popsicles.
Well, I can say that I tried with these popsicles. Not that I even thought for a second that I’m the first to think of a red white & blue popsicle BUT I still was excited about the thought of making a patriotic healthy fruit popsicle.
But when I pulled them from the freezer, I was pretty disappointed. I mean, the blueberry layer had turned almost a purplish brown – and that’s not blue. Nope.
So I thought it was back to the drawing board. How could I make the blueberry layer blue without using food coloring?
But then… a nibble here and a nibble there had me totally rethinking the drawing board. These fruit popsicles were GOOD. Like, really good.
So I thought, what the hay. I’ll just keep ’em. The blue layer might not be blue but it IS full of blueberries. And that says something, right?
With a top layer of a crazy good strawberry/pineapple mixture, a middle layer of low-fat yogurt, and a bottom layer of a blueberry/banana mixture – you will love these fruit popsicles! They’re a wonderful addition to your holiday get together. Or really any day because heck, they’re not actually red, white & blue, right?! 😉
Are you barbecuing this weekend? I sure am! And you can bet I’ll be serving these popsicles for dessert after grilling out. I hope you do too! Enjoy!

These are so pretty and sound super tasty!
Is there anything I can use to substitute bananas? I have an allergy and cannot ingest them 🙁
Hi Kelli! You can omit the bananas completely and it should be just fine. You might need to add extra blueberries to make up for the spot of the bananas, but the popsicles should still be very tasty. 🙂 I hope you try them!
