Rocket Pops. These bright colored stripy pops are usually made out of  made out of red and blue food dye and some sort of “cream” center. My Berry Bliss Rocket Pops are full of fresh berries with a frozen yogurt center stripe.

Not only do they taste great, but you can change up the flavors any way you wish.  My popsicles are blueberry and strawberry. That is why I named them Berry Bliss!

Gotta let you know that I came up with this recipe and photographed it a few weeks ago. I was so excited about being all creative and then my teeny tiny issue of Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food was slipped into my mailbox. What was on the cover?

Stripy berry pops quite similar to mine. But mine are better……’cause I say so.

To get that awesome Rocket Pop shape I use these handy star ice pop molds from Tovolo. You can find them on my Amazon.com store. Their Groovy shape would work well too. So would dixie cups if you don’t have any ice pop molds.

These pops would be perfect for Memorial DayJuly 4th, Labor Day and the Jubilee (for our British friends) and any other summer picnic, BBQ or beach party.

They are great for an everyday poolside snack.

You can use any fruits and berries you have on hand. Also feel free to play with the white stripe. You can use coconut milk, greek yogurt, heavy cream or anything else you can dream up.

What will you be doing for July 4th? Do you have any fun summer travel lined up?

Ingredients

Method

    Berry Sauce
  • In two separate saucepans bring berries to boil with 1 tablespoon of water in each pan. Partially cover pans and reduce to a simmer for about 5 minutes until berries are saucy.
  • Remove from heat and purée each sauce separately in a blender. Transfer the strawberry sauce to an airtight container and store in the refrigerator.
  • Pops
  • Fill pop molds 1/3 of the way with the strawberry sauce. Freeze for 3 hours or until frozen. Sweeten the Greek yogurt or coconut milk to taste. Fill the pop molds with 1/3 of the yogurt or coconut milk. Return to freezer for 3 hours or until frozen. Fill the molds, leaving 1/4 inch at the top with the blueberry sauce. Cover molds with tin foil and insert sticks until they reach the white layer. Freeze for another 3 hours or until solid.
  • Carefully remove pops from molds, you can run some warm water over the molds to make this easier.
  • Notes
  • You will end up with more berry sauce then you need for these pops. This is great to top pancakes, french toast, for mixed berry yogurt parfaits, oatmeal, cake ice cream, smoothies, shakes and more!
