FIRECRACKER ICE POPS

It’s that time of year again where the weather is getting hot and I’m on the lookout for simple frozen treats to help us all cool off!  This recipe couldn’t be any simpler and the colors make these popsicles the perfect treat for the 4th of July!  (Although the colors end up being a little more pink/purple rather than red/blue!)


FIRECRACKER ICE POPS
1/2 lbs strawberries, quartered 
1/2 lbs blueberries
2 Tbsp. sugar
1 1/4 cups vanilla yogurt (or you can use plain yogurt – just add 2 Tbsp of sugar to it before using)

Puree the strawberries with a blender or food processor and add 1 Tbsp sugar.  Set aside in a small bowl.  Puree the blueberries, adding 1 Tbsp sugar.  Pour the layers into popsicle molds – alternating in whichever order you’d like.  These amounts filled my 6 molds perfectly, but depending on the size of your molds, you may have slightly different results.  I used a skewer to slightly mix the layers – you can mix as much as you’d like.  Freeze until solid, about 2 1/2-3 hours.  Enjoy!

HOMEMADE STRAWBERRY JAM

2 pounds strawberries, washed/hulled and crushed in a food processor
4 cups sugar


Combine sugar and berries in a deep, heavy bottomed pot and cook on low to melt the sugar.  Once dissolved, raise the heat to high and bring to a full boil! Stir often until it reaches 220 degrees on a candy thermometer.  If you like it extra thick, let it go an extra couple of minutes.  Remove from heat and cool.  Store in a glass jar in the fridge and enjoy.
