Get Creative this 4th of July Holiday

Patriotic Popsicles

1 cup sliced strawberries

1 cup blueberries

1 cup vanilla flavored yogurt Reusable Popsicle Mold

Place mold into the freezer while preparing ingredients.

Divide the yogurt into two pourable containers (with a spout). Thin the yogurt slightly with water, not too much, the goal is simply to make easier to pour. Distribute the strawberries into one container and the blueberries into the other, mix gently.

Pour into the popsicle mold, using as directed. Put the mold in the freezer and freeze until firm, at least an hour, or more. It is recommended to keep the popsicles in the mold until ready to serve. If making large quantities, wrap each popsicle in wax paper and put back in the freezer. For best use make the same day not in advance.
