These patriotic red, white and blue popsicles are made with layers of strawberry raspberry for the red layer, a vanilla (or cinnamon) creamy milk white layer, and blueberry blackberry for the blue layer. We’ve been on a popsicle craze around here, my freezer barely has room left for anything and is completely full with popsicles and ice pops (zipsicles or bolos as we call them in Ecuador).
I started making popsicles at the end of May, and the first ones were yellow, blue and red gelatin layered popsicles to support Ecuador in the World Cup. My kids immediately asked for red, white, and blue ones to support the USA team. We also made ones with the Mexico flag colors and some layered with mora (Andean blackberry) and cinnamon milk. Needless to say we are ready for summer, and ready to cheer for our teams.
Additional ideas of each popsicle color/flavor layer:
Red: Strawberries, raspberries, cherries, or a mix of red berries, watermelon, red gelatin
White: Cream and milk flavored with vanilla or cinnamon, yogurt with honey, coconut cream or milk, or fruity options like lime or lemon, white honeydew melon, guanabana or soursop fruit, chirimoya
Blue (this is the hardest color to get exactly right and even these options are not 100% blue): Blueberries, blackberries, or you can also try blue gelatin
