The Freshman Cook: 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! 4th of July “I LOVE THE USA” Popsicles

1-4 ounce box Sugar Free Cherry Jello

8 ounce Vanilla Greek Yogurt
1-4 ounce Berry Blue Jello
8 Patriotic Paper Straws~Cut in half 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.
Have fun with these! 
Thanks for joining me today! 
Happy 4th!
