Patriotic Pops

Patriotic Pops

Just in time for all of our red, white and blue holidays, I made Patriotic Pops.

(They’re coconut with chopped strawberries and blueberries.)

 Not only are they simple, they are delicious!  My kiddos had a fun time helping me assemble these guys!

This recipe makes 10 popsicles.  All you need are popsicle molds (found at most places like Walmart and such) and popsicle sticks!  
 
Shopping List
1 pink of coconut gelato, ice cream or sherbet (I used gelato), thawed quite a bit
1 cup of blueberries
1 cup of chopped strawberries
10 wooden popsicle sticks
Popsicle molds should be at room temperature before assembling.  Spray down inside each mold with non-stick cooking spray.  Set aside.
I took each mold and spooned in a little of my softened gelato followed by a few blueberries and sliced strawberries and then added more gelato and then a few more berries and then repeated
until there was about an inch left at the top of my mold.  Repeat with all molds.
Pop molds into freezer and freeze for one hour.  After one hour, place the wooden sticks inside each mold.  Continue to freeze at least 7 hours before removing.
When you’re ready to serve, run your sink until the water is very hot.  Holding the mold, place the bottom portion under your hot water for about 20 to 30 seconds.  After that, you should be able to grab the sticks and easily remove each popsicle.  If they’re not coming out easily, run the bottom of the mold under hot water a few seconds more.
Remove, serve and enjoy this summer as you celebrate the red, white and blue!
