These red, white and blue yogurt popsicles are such a festive and healthy recipe to celebrate 4th of July! With only 3 ingredients, you can make this healthy pops in minutes.
First of all, I just want to apologize for being MIA the last week or so. If you read often you know I post a new recipe every Tuesday and Saturday pretty consistently. This week, however, has not been consistent by any means.
Zach and I moved into our new home two weeks ago and we're still in the process of figuring out life with this new schedule. We've been crazy busy and I had no time to test all the recipes I've been wanting to make, let alone take pictures and actually find quality time to thoughtfully tell you all how delicious they are.
You should have seen me Friday night. I had a major meltdown because I couldn't find a good window in our new house with natural light for food photography #FoodBloggerProbz. I was super dramatic and told him we may have to sell the house if I can't find good lighting. I'm the most dramatic.
Zach, being the best and sweetest human of all time calmed me down and logically helped me find the best window. And it just so happens to be the window coming into our kitchen right on the counter. Talk about convenient!
These red, white and blue yogurt popsicles were the first recipe I made once I figured out the lighting situation. I was so happy about the way they turned out! I get super geeky when I take good pictures that I send my favorite ones to my sisters and mom to show them before I post them.
I think I sent them 3 or 4 of these red white and blue yogurt popsicles because they made me so happy.
Not only did they make me happy to look at but they made me so happy to eat. Like I mentioned, I haven't quite figured out my timing and schedule in the new house yet. So naturally, I run around like a mad woman in the morning to try and get out the door.
Luckily, I've had these yogurt popsicles I can take on the go for breakfast. They're made with only three healthy ingredients so they're the perfect morning go-to while I'm driving.
Side note: my commute is a lot longer now so I've been listening to podcasts on the way to and from work. I've been catching up on the Food Blogger Pro podcast and learning lots of great nuggets.
If you have any favorite podcasts you've been listening to send them my way! I'm looking for new ones to listen to next! Food blogger pro episodes + red white and blue yogurt popsicles = a stress free ride into work.
For the best yogurt popsicles I have one simple tip: make sure you use good quality yogurt. I recommend using your favorite greek yogurt that you eat normally. My favorite is light and fit vanilla greek yogurt. Because it's the main ingredient in these make sure you have your fave kind!
Once you have the greek yogurt and berries you're ready to assemble your red, white and blue yogurt popsicles!
