Cool and refreshing, Red White and Blueberry Popsicles hit the spot on a hot summer’s day. The base of these homemade popsicles is coconut milk, berries, and a touch of honey. They’re a fabulously healthy, yet festive dessert for the Fourth of July!

I’ve made these Red White and Blueberry Popsicles using stevia in place of honey and they were delicious, but your palate would need to be adapted to a very low-sugar diet to enjoy them that way. As it is, the recipe below (using honey) is not all that sweet, so you may wish to increase the amount of honey in it to suit your taste. You can also make these healthy popsicles with a a sweetener other than honey. I haven’t tried it, but I think they would be delicious with maple syrup. If you do make alterations to the recipe, please leave a comment to let us know how your version turns out.

Although this recipe looks a bit complicated, it’s pretty simple and results in a very patriotic July 4th dessert! This year we’re celebrating liberty, civil rights, and marriage, for all.

We’ve been trying to figure out what red white and blue popsicles are called. I liked the sound of Red White and Blueberry Popsicles, but others were suggesting I call them homemade bomb pops, firecracker popsicles, or rocket pops. Whatever you call them, these frozen popsicles are incredible on a hot summer’s day. They’re the perfect dairy-free treat for the fourth of July!

  1. Love these! My birthday is July 4th and as a functional medicine consultant/holistic nutritionist I am always looking for fun, easy, healthy recipes to bring to BBQ’s. I am sharing this recipe on my blog as well (and providing a link to this, of course). Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hi, I would like to ask you about the coconut milk: Do you use the liquid part, the solid part or a mix of them?. Because when I open the coconut milk there is clearly differenciated a solid part and a liquid part…. Thanks!

  3. Do you use the canned coconut milk (I use for baking) or the kind in the dairy case as a replacement for cows milk?

  4. Hi Elana!
    i was just wondering why you use water in the blueberry layer and not coconut milk like you do in the other layers. coconut milk would work just fine too right?
    thanks for your time!

    • Thanks for the shout out to Canadians on July 1st, “Canada Day”. So seldom seen on American sites but so appreciated!
