Homemade 'Rocket Pops' Popsicle Recipe Is Even Better Than the Real Thing

posted by Rebecca Stokes

It isn't officially summer until your kids are covered head to toe in melted popsicles. Who cares about the mess? That's what sprinklers and dogs who love to lick were made for, right? Exactly. Still, keeping the house fully stocked with the icy treats can be a hassle, and you don't want kids totally wired on sugar day in and day as they run in tiny little circles banging their heads on the wall, do you? 

I've got a solution to the sugar madness, the no-school boredom, AND the popsicle problem! Boom! I'm a problem-solving machine! Get the kiddos on board and make your own red, white, and blue rocket popsicles! Of course you can update this recipe to make any ol' type of popsicle you desire, but something about the red, white, and blue popsicles always makes me giddy with thoughts of summer. This recipe does mean investing in popsicle molds, but trust me -- they are cheap and basically pay for themselves. 

Red, White & Blue Popsicle Recipe

Ingredients

1 (12 oz.) bag frozen blueberries, defrosted
6 tablespoons honey
1 cup plain yogurt
1/4 cup milk
1 (12-oz.) bag frozen raspberries, defrosted

Directions

Place defrosted blueberries and 2 tbsp honey in a blender and puree until smooth.

Pour the blueberry puree a 1/3 way up each popsicle mold and freeze for 30-45 minutes.

Combine yogurt, milk, and 2 tbsp of honey in a bowl and whisk until smooth.

Pour yogurt mixture 2/3 way up the popsicle molds on top of the blueberry mixture, and freeze for another 30-45 minutes.

Place defrosted raspberries and 2 tbsp honey in a blender and blend until smooth.

Finish the popsicles by pouring the raspberry puree over the yogurt, place sticks in, and freeze.

Have you ever made your own popsicles?

we make our own frozen treats. My DD's current "thing" is to freeze homemade dairy-free smoothies for popsicles

 I like making them with fresh fruit, especially strawberries. Frozen smoothies are so good. I just made a bunch with Greek yogurt and added protein powder for a friend who is just out of the hospital and on a high protein, soft food diet.

We do make them a lot! We make pudding pops a lot! TheE sound delicious except I would have to switch out the raspberries for strawberries. My son is really allergic and raspberry nothing enters my house.
