Red, White + Blue Berry Popsicles

Red White and Blue Berry Popsicles Red White and Blue Berry Popsicles So, these popsicles might just be my new favorite summer treat — even though it’s July and actually feels nothing like summer in San Francisco. For those of you not in the Bay area who are absolutely sweltering from the summertime heat and humidity I’m going to apologize in advance — because what I’m about to tell you might make you sweat even more.

When I wrote this post I was sitting in my apartment eating a popsicle… WITH THE HEAT ON.

I kid you not. It was a chilly 65 degrees in the house every morning last week. First, I threw on a sweatshirt. Then, dug out my slippers. You’d think after three years in this city I’d be used to the fact that summer = wind + fog here in San Francisco but clearly, I’m not. The heat was a last resort — but necessary, and worth every eye-roll my husband shot my way last week.

But let’s get back to these popsicles, because I averaged two a day last week and know they don’t last long. Featuring pureed strawberries and blueberries and two creamy vanilla layers with a sweet granola top, these popsicles are made with just a handful of real ingredients — including wholesome milk, a staple you always have at home in your fridge.

Many people may not realize this but milk is one of the original farm-to-table foods! Always having milk on-hand makes it such a simple ingredient to incorporate into your favorite recipes, smoothies, or to simply enjoy by the glass with snacks and meals.

They take a little bit of time to make but really, they’re super simple. The key is freezing the pops until firm after adding each layer. If you don’t you’ll probably end up with pink and purple tie-dye popsicles — though I’m sure they’d still taste delicious.

For nice clean lines I highly recommend using a small syringe to transfer the milk-yogurt mixture and purees into the mold. You mommas out there, you probably have at least a few of these in your medicine cabinet! If you’re cool with a more rustic look, carefully pouring the liquid into the mold works, too.
