These red, white, and blue pops have serious patriotic flair and are totally free of the artificial dyes that color the store-bought version. They look best when you make them in a rocket shaped ice-pop mold, but they’ll still look gorgeous in a classic-style ice-pop mold. The layering and freezing process takes a little extra time, but it’s totally worth the effort.

Ingredients

  • 1 pint fresh blueberries
  • 3 tablespoons honey, divided
  • 1 cup plain low-fat Greek yogurt
  • 1⁄4 cup nonfat milk
  • 1 pint fresh raspberries

Directions

  1. Place blueberries and 1 tablespoon honey in a blender and purée until smooth, about 1 minute.
  2. Pour the blueberry purée into 6 ice-pop molds, dividing it equally among them so each mold is about 1⁄3 full. Place pops in freezer to set, about 30 minutes.
  3. Combine yogurt, milk, and 1 tablespoon honey in a medium bowl. Whisk until smooth, about 30 seconds.
  4. Pour the yogurt mixture into the ice-pop molds on top of the blueberry mixture, dividing it equally among them so each mold is about 2⁄3 full. Place pops in freezer to set, about 30 minutes.
  5. Place raspberries and remaining 1 tablespoon honey in a blender and blend until smooth, about 1 minute. Pour over the yogurt mixture in the molds, dividing it equally among them.
  6. Finish the pops by placing sticks in each mold and freezing until set, about 2–3 hours.
