Show Off Your True Red White & Blue With Perfect Popsicles This Summer

It's Sweet to Share!

Red, White and Blue Popsicles are one of the more fun ways to show off your American spirit at a summer barbeque, party or celebration this summer. Especially when they are homemade!

If I’d let them, my kids would live off of popsicles in the summer. And since these popsicles are mostly fruit, I wouldn’t even feel bad about making that a reality. With a scant amount of sugar and loaded with whole fruit, these popsicles are a healthy treat for a hot summer day.

Triple Layer Popsicles for the 4th of July

Patriotic red white and blue popsicles made with 3 layers of sherbet that are perfect for a festive celebration this summer! 

Red Layer

This is the same strawberry sherbet as in my Red White and Blue USA Flag Cake. You’ll have a little extra if you make that cake that will work perfect for this recipe. Otherwise, use the adjustments in this recipe to simply make popsicles.

White Layer

The lemon sherbet is so yummy! I also tried an applesauce flavor that is so easy, and honestly I had a hard time deciding between the two. I’ll have to post some ultra delicious applesauce summer popsicles very soon! 

Stacked Popsicles

Blue Layer 

I really wanted to avoid food coloring for the blue layer, but it’s hard to make blue naturally.

If you squeeze blueberries, they end up purple. Same with blackberries. Same with acai berries. All are super yummy, but not blue. So I opted for solid blueberries. 

Frozen Blueberries in Popsicles

In the future, I might just have to go with blue food coloring. Then I could make any flavor I wanted! My kids were begging for honeydew – sounds good to me! 

How Many Red, White and Blue Popsicles Does This Make?

Depending on the size of your popsicle molds this may make more or less than 8 popsicles.

If you want a simple hack for making extra popsicles with extra sherbet, pour your extra liquid into a Tupperware container. When frozen slightly, add popsicle sticks and continue to freeze. When frozen, just cut out square sized chunks around the popsicle sticks! 

How to Make This Recipe

Red, White and Blue Popsicles are so easy to create at home.

Red White and Blue Popsicles

You’ll just need a few ingredients plus popsicle molds which you can order overnight on Amazon (see links below), or pick up at your local grocery store! 

Don’t forget the popsicle sticks too! For these popsicles you won’t be able to use the reusable plastic sticks that come with the molds because you’ll need to add the sticks on the second layer to get them in right. 

For the ingredients, all you have to do is throw all of your ingredients into a blender, and then pour them into the molds. With these popsicles, you’ll have to wait an hour and a half between layers, or they will mix. Once the last layer is in, leave the popsicles in the freezer overnight, and they’ll be ready the next morning!

Must Have Popsicle Making Supplies on Amazon

I am an Amazon affiliate and Amazon sometimes pays me an incredibly small stipend from the sale of these items, and it does not cost you anything to click on them!

For this recipe, these are the popsicle molds I used. These are on the smaller size, so depending on your party size, group, or let’s be honest, appetite – you might want to opt for a bigger size.

I do, however, love how easy they are to get out of the mold and how they come with a container that keeps them level while freezing and also doubles as a container to dip in water to loosen up for easy removal.

These molds are in my cart. I am looking forward to being able to make popsicles that are a little big larger and all in the same container.

Don’t forget popsicle sticks and popsicle bags!
