Yup.  this totally happened.  And you know what?  these were actually really easy to make.

These healthy Firecracker popsicles have no artificial colors, no added sugar, and can be made vegan.  I used cow’s 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 popsicles this summer, I highly suggest buying some silicone popsicle molds.  They are not expensive, and you can get really creative with them.   I use these.

When I made these popsicles, 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.

Healthy Firecracker Pops –Makes 8 pops.

Blueberry Layer- 1/2 cup of blueberries and 1/8 cup of milk  –In your blender- Mix blueberries and milk.  Fill each silicone mold 1/3 with the blueberry mixture and stick the popsicle stick in the mold for 2-3 hours. 

Lemon Layer- 1 Banana and the zest and juice of 1/2 lemon- In your blender- mix banana, lemon juice, and zest.  Fill each silicone milk another 1/3 with this mixture.  Freeze for 2-3 hours.  

Strawberry Layer- 1/2 cup of 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.
