Patriotic Popsicles

Kristin | September 1, 2016

As an American, there's so much to look forward to in the next couple of months. Not only is Labor Day weekend THIS weekend (I can't believe it's already September!), but the election is upon us and I'm looking forward to the upcoming debates... between Strawberry and Blueberry, that is.

That's right, today marks the first day of our Red State or Blue State Sweepstakes, and there are soooo many prizes just waiting to be won. All you have to do is vote for your "candidate" of choice (either strawberry or blueberry) and you'll be entered to win 1 of 7 prizes, including a $500 Visa gift card, a $250 Visa gift card, and 1 of 5 $100 Visa gift cards! That's a whole 'lotta cash and it doesn't stop there! You can also join our Debate Night Twitter Party for even more chances to win, on September 26th, at 8:00pm ET.

In honor of our Red State or Blue State Sweepstakes, I whipped up these patriotic popsicles. These are the perfect sweet treat to cool you down when the berry debates are heating up, or to enjoy poolside this Labor Day weekend! 

So who's it going to be - Strawberry or Blueberry? The choice is yours! Vote now and WIN BIG by clicking below!

Serves 10

Ingredients:

1 heaping cup California Giant strawberries

1 cup California Giant blueberries

1 cup vanilla flavored Greek yogurt

Instructions:

Using a food processor or blender, puree the strawberries until smooth. Set aside and do the same thing with the blueberries.

Fill each popsicle mold, starting with the blueberry puree in the bottom. Layer the yogurt and strawberry puree, alternating to create red and white stripes. Push in the popsicle sticks and place the popsicle mold in the freezer. Freeze until firm.

*I like my popsicles a little rustic, but for straighter lines, place the popsicle mold in the freezer after you add each layer. This will allow each layer to harden (so the colors don't mix) and will result in straight red and white stripes.

Enjoy!
