Gluten-Free 4th of July Popsicles

The Fourth of July is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate than with these delicious Organic and Healthy Red, White, and Blue Popsicles from our friend Kim at CookItAllergyFree.com!

These awesome treats are festive, fun, and tasty, as well as gluten, egg, soy, and nut free and vegan.

They’re made from strawberries, blueberries, and So Delicious coconut milk yogurt so they’re yummy and good for you too!

Ingredients:

  • 1 lb Strawberries, fresh or frozen
  • 3/4 tsp Vanilla Creme Stevia (or 1/4 cup Coconut Sugar)
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 1 tsp Lime Juice, freshly squeezed
  • 1 16-oz Vanilla Coconut Milk Yogurt, such as So Delicious Cultured Coconut Yogurt (or a Dairy version of choice if not Dairy Free)
  • 3 Tbsp Coconut Cream (skimmed from the top of can of full-fat coconut milk)
  • 8 oz Blueberries, Fresh or Frozen
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Creme Stevia (or 1/3 cup Coconut Sugar)
  • 1 tsp Lime Juice, freshly squeezed
  • 2 Tbsp Water

Directions:

1.  In medium saucepan, mix together: Strawberries, Stevia (or sugar), Water, and Lime Juice.  Bring to low simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 5 minutes. Pour in blender and puree to desired consistency.

2.  Fill each opening in your popsicle molds one-third of the way with the strawberry mixture.  Place in freezer for 30 minutes to set while preparing next step.

3.  In small bowl, mix together: Coconut Yogurt and Coconut Cream.  After 30 minutes, remove molds from freezer and top strawberry mixture with Coconut Yogurt mixture so mold is now two-thirds full leaving enough room to top with final blueberry mixture. Return strawberry-yogurt layers to freezer for 15 to 30 minutes.

4.  While yogurt layer is setting, in medium saucepan, mix together: Blueberries, Stevia (or Coconut Sugar), Water, and Lime Juice.  Bring to low simmer for about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool for 15 minutes. Pour in blender and puree to desired consistency.

5.  Add as the final layer to the molds and then return to freezer to set for at least one more hour.
