I am so excited to welcome our special guest from “Natural Girl who is sharing a “cool” treat that is perfect for your 4th of July party! Patriotic popsicles! This is a multi-flavored, nutritious frozen treat you’ll be proud to serve your kids. Sound good? Let’s getting creating:
Strawberries, Blueberry yogurt, Coconut milk, 6 inch cookie sticks or popsicle sticks. Optional: Blueberries & 1/2 Banana.
Step 1.Puree 1 & 1/2 cups strawberries (green tops removed) and pour into first 1/3 of popsicle molds. Cover and freeze for about an hour.
Remove from freezer, add 2nd layer of coconut milk. Or blend 1/2 can coconut milk with with 1/2 banana for a banana-coconut flavor. Cover with foil and insert sticks. Freeze another hour.
Step 3. Remove from freezer and add blueberries (optional).
Add blueberry yogurt, cover and freeze another hour, or overnight.
While you wait…..make the “fireworks” drip guards
Use colorful cupcake liners ~ flatten and cut in towards center ~ or use construction paper….
1. Cut 4-inch circles out of construction paper, cut fringed strips towards center circle (center circle approx. the size of a nickel).
2. Fold the circle in half and cut a small triangle in the center of the circle by snipping two angled cuts.
3. When you open the circle, you should have a small diamond shape. Insert the stick so the drawn circle (if you made one) faces down.
Pop the frozen treats out of molds, add a festive “fireworks” drip-guard & serve!

Being a homemaker is my favorite occupation, though I'm also a portrait photographer and avid Project Lifer! Oh, and I LOVE working at HowDoesShe, sharing ideas for women, by women, on how to make the most out of our lives! It's amazing!
