Flag Ice Pops
A fun treat for pool parties, hot summer days or after school snacking!
- 2 (10 oz.) bags of Stahlbush Island Farms blueberries
- 1 (10 oz.) bags of Stahlbush Island Farms strawberries
- 1/2 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of water
- 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar
- 1 Tbsp. honey
- 3/4 cup plain unsweetened yogurt (preferably greek)
- Make the blue ice pops!
- Combine blueberries and 1/4 cup sugar in a saucepan with 1/4 cup water. Simmer for about 7-10 minutes or until the strawberries are nice and soft. Transfer the mixture to a blender and add the lemon juice. Blend until smooth.
- While the mixture cools, make the red and white pops. Place the frozen strawberries in a bowl with 2 Tbsp. powdered sugar.
- Make a simple syrup by combining 1/4 cup sugar and 1/4 cup water in a saucepan. Stir until the mixture comes to a boil and the sugar is dissolved. Let chill.
- Combine the honey, yogurt and simple syrup into a blender and blend until smooth.
- Pour all of the blueberry mixture into half of the molds, leaving 1/4 inch space.
- Pour a little of the yogurt mixture into the molds, enough to just cover the bottom of the remaining molds. Set aside the remaining mixture. Freeze for about 40 minutes.
- Meanwhile puree the strawberries and powdered sugar in a blender.
- Bring the molds out of the freezer and pour the strawberry mixture over the yogurt mixture until about half full. Freeze for another 40 minutes.
- Take them out and repeat the white layer using remaining yogurt mixture. At this point, place the sticks in the center of the blueberry pops. Freeze for another 40 minutes.
- Take them out and top with the remaining strawberry mixture. Add sticks in the center of each remaining mold.
- Freeze untouched for another 5 hours or until solid.
- If you don't want to take the time to create the layers, you can create a marble pattern by pouring all of the white mixture into the molds, topping it with the red mixture and swirling them together with a wooden stick before popping them in the freezer. After about 1 hour, don't forget to take them out to insert the wooden sticks into the centers.
