Yup. this totally happened. And you know what? these were actually really easy to make.
These healthy Firecracker popcicles have no artificial colors, no added sugar and can be made vegan. I used cows milk, but any type of milk can be used. The only sweetener is fruit.
I am afraid that these aren’t exactly like the real thing. You see, I have never seen a blue raspberry in my life. So I used blueberries instead.
If you want to make homemade popcicles this summer, I highly suggest buying some silicone popcicle molds. They are not expensive, and you can get really creative with them. I use these.
When I made these popcicles, I made 1 layer at a time, and then froze that layer. Each layer only took a few minutes to make. So, all in all, these pops didn’t require much prep time.
If I were to make these again, I would add some lemon juice to the blueberry mixture. Also, the red layer does not have to be strawberry. It can be cherry or raspberry.

Strawberry Layer- 1/2 cup os sliced strawberries and 1/8 cup of milk- In your blender- mix strawberries and milk. Fill the rest of the silicone molds with this mixture. Freeze for 20-3 hours .
For dessert tonight, we had these beauties for dessert. My three-year-old told me that the lemon-banana was his favorite part. My husband and I liked the strawberry. I am pretty sure this little guy loved the blueberry best.
