Summer feels like it just began, but all of a sudden the Fourth of July is here! I swear the nicer the weather, the faster time goes. Nonetheless, it is time to break out the red, white and blue decor and head outside to celebrate one of the best parts of summer. This holiday is notoriously known for spending all day outside, hosting a BBQ and living up summertime with loved ones.
Among my friends and family, I am known as the person who loves, loves, loves celebrations, holidays and traditions. I think I drive others nuts sometimes with all my ideas, but it is all in good fun. Making Fourth of July colored and themed treats is a must and unquestionable in my opinion. In Minnesota, this time of year always has scorching weather and muggy temperatures. These red, white and blue berry popsicles are not only true to my holiday loving self, but oh so refreshing for these hot summer days. And fresh summer fruit should be consumed all day, every day.
Apart from the fun themed colors, popsicles are great summer treats for a healthy, cold snack. I find myself craving ice cream more and more in the summertime, so having these fruity pops ready to go in the freezer makes choosing a nutritious alternative easier. These particular popsicles are loaded with vibrant strawberries, blueberries and raspberries – my absolute favorite. With lime LaCroix water as the base, however, the possibilities are endless with the fruit you could pack them with. I also love how easy popsicles are to make in bulk. It is a great homemade snack with little effort and prep work. Give these red, white and blue berry posicles a try for yourself this Fourth of July!
