Firecracker Ice Pops

A few weeks ago, The Littlest Apple and I made these Firecracker Ice Pops.  The Littlest Apple LOVES popsicles (and really, who doesn’t?!), so I thought we could try making our own.  I think I may have enjoyed these more than The Littlest Apple…I liked that these aren’t overly sweet and that they include a yogurt layer.  He probably would have preferred an all strawberry popsicle that was a little sweeter.

Firecracker Ice Pops

recipe from Everyday Food


  • 1/2 pound strawberries, hulled and quartered (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 pound blueberries (1 1/2 cups)
  • 1 1/4 cups low-fat plain yogurt

In a food processor, puree strawberries with 1 tablespoon sugar.  Transfer to a small bowl.  In processor, puree blueberries with 1 tablespoon sugar.  In another small bowl, whisk together yogurt and 2 tablespoons sugar.  Pour the 3 mixtures, alternating, into ten 3-ounce ice-pop molds, making 3 to 5 layers each.  Swirl mixtures if desired.  Insert ice-pop sticks and freeze until solid, 2 1/2 to 3 hours.

The Littlest Apple (pre haircut) enjoy his popsicle….

    Katherine- Thanks so much for saying that. We certainly think The Littlest Apple is handsome. Can’t wait to see how that plays out when he’s a teenager! 🙂

    Liz-Thanks for all of your comments recently! I’m so glad I found your blog.

    FoodontheTable-I guess these are called Firecracker Popsicles since they’re red, white, and blue….probably meant to be served for July Fourth. I was a little late with them, but I think they’re delicious year round!
