Celebrate the 4th with Red, White and Blue Popsicles

, Celebrate the 4th with Red, White and Blue PopsiclesOur Health-e-Recipe for Berry Cherry Yogurt Popsicles is an easy-to-make summer treat for this 4th of July, especially with kids. And it’s healthier and lower in calories than many store-bought popsicles.

Berries and cherries are packed with cancer-preventing compounds including anthocyanins and ellagic acid, plus vitamin C. They may seem more expensive than other fruits, but they cost less now that they are in season and not much more than chips and other packaged foods.

Greek vanilla yogurt contains less sugar and more protein than frozen dairy desserts. And you can use fresh cherries or blackberries, too, but buying frozen unsweetened versions skips having to pit fresh cherries. If kids are helping you, note that berry juice can stain clothing so wear aprons or old shirts before starting.

Paper cups and popsicle sticks are cheap and easy to find. You can just tear off the cups when the popsicles have frozen, or just freeze without the popsicle sticks and use spoons to eat out of the cup. Enjoy these delicious pops as desserts or snacks.
