These Red White-Blueberry Ice Pops scream 4th of July but they are sweet and tasty any time of year. Made with coconut milk they are a perfect dairy free ice pop recipe to cool off with in the sweltering heat of the summer.
If you don't care for coconut milk you can use almond milk or any other non dairy milk substitute you like but you will not achieve the bright white color you see in the center of these Red White-Blueberry ice pops.

Red White-Blueberry Ice Pops
The red ice pop layer is made with strawberries and coconut milk with just a tiny bit of sugar. The white center is made with sweetened coconut milk and the blue ice pop layer is made with fresh blueberries and coconut milk.
The blueberry layer is more a purple color but hey what can I say? I was going for a red, white and blue colored ice pop and this is what I got.
The Red, White and Blue Ice Pops are made with fresh strawberries and fresh blueberries.
Because I wanted to make these fun 4th of July ice pops with fresh fruit fresh blueberries or blackberries are the only fruit close enough to the color blue I could use.
How to Make Red White and Blue Ice Pops for the 4th of July
A blender is your best friend when it comes to making fresh fruit ice pops. I pulsed each separate ice pop layer in my Blendtec Blender.
- For the strawberry ice pop layer I really pulsed it a good five or six times. The Blendtec blender did such a great job you can't even see any strawberry seeds.
- To make the white ice pop center layer I did the same with the coconut milk and sugar which helped the sugar dissolve.
- To make the blueberry ice pop layer I wanted some of the fruit to show in the bottom layer so I didn't pulse it as much.
