Recipe: Red, White and Blue Banana Pops

Makes 12 pops – 1 per serving

Ingredients
1 medium frozen banana
1-3/4 cups vanilla yogurt, divided
2 tablespoons sugar
1-1/4 cups sliced fresh strawberries, divided
1-1/4 cups fresh blueberries, divided

Directions
Prepare these pops several hours ahead of time – or even the night before – so they’re frozen solid when your family pulls them from the freezer.

1. Slice frozen banana into coin-sized pieces. Place banana coins and 1-1/2 cups vanilla yogurt in a blender. Cover and process until blended well. Transfer to a small bowl and set aside.

2. Add 1 cup of strawberries, 2 tablespoons of yogurt, and one tablespoon of sugar to the blender. Cover and process until blended well. Transfer to a small bowl. Chop remaining strawberries, mix in with strawberry mixture and set aside.

3. Add 1 cup of blueberries, 2 tablespoons of yogurt, and one tablespoon of sugar to the blender. Cover and process until blended well. Transfer to a small bowl. Stir in remaining blueberries to blueberry mixture and set aside.

4. In freezer popsicle molds, layer one tablespoon of strawberry mixture, 2 tablespoons of banana mixture and one tablespoon of blueberry mixture. Top molds with holders and freeze until firm. If using cups, cover with aluminum foil and insert sticks through the foil.
