4th of July "I LOVE THE USA" Popsicles!

I heard a rumor today that by Saturday the heat might start subsiding a little, here in the south! Well, I hope it's true, but to be on the safe side, I am filling my freezer with these 4th of July "I LOVE THE USA" Popsicles.  'Ya know, "just in case"!! Besides, what would the 4th be without the cool refreshment of popsicles! I can't imagine one without the other!! These pops are made with red and blue jello, and vanilla yogurt. They are easy to make, but not quick. Freezing them seemed to take forever, and had me yearning for one of those blast chillers they use on Chopped! But they are worth the wait!

I won't bore you with how to make jello, 
so make the red first, and put 1 tablespoon
in to each mold. Freeze completely.

Place 1 tablespoon of yogurt on top of the frozen red jello.

Place back in the freezer for 30 minutes. 
Check after 30 minutes, and see if
the straw halves will stay up in the frozen yogurt.
If not, keep checking every ten minutes until the
straws will stand up by themselves. 
Let freeze completely. Add blue jello by filling it to
the top of the mold and let freeze completely.

  2. Homemade "rocket" pops!! What a cool (literally) treat...I'm definitely going to make these for my kiddos. The straws as sticks are adorable too!

  3. I love these. I like how you can make them in muffin tins. They sound pretty simple too. I love that it's all natural. Thanks for sharing it on Small Victories Sunday Linkup!
