Softened vanilla ice cream, chopped fresh strawberries, and fresh blueberries not only are a perfect summer taste combination for your tongue but they just so happen to be perfectly patriotic for our upcoming Fourth of July Festivities, especially when sprinkled with edible gold stars! Are you kidding me…red, white and blue AND gold stars. Mic drop. These festive red, white, and blue sugar cookies that I shared last year were so popular, so I am so excited to add another patriotic recipe with these red, white and blue popsicles to the mix!

These stainless steel molds are my favorite for popsicles; they release easily, don’t retain flavors or stains like plastics sometimes do, you can make just one popsicle at a time if you wish. They are dishwasher safe and will last forever.

You can make these ahead of time and remove them from the molds and keep them in the freezer. That way, if you need more than the 6 that one mold set makes you could make 6, freeze them and continue to reuse the mold until you have enough. While surely not active time-consuming you will need to allocate the 5 hours freeze time for each batch.

If you go this route, put your frozen popsicles on a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet so that they don’t stick.

Tucking your frozen popsicles in 4 X 6 treat bags makes them easily portable. Of course, you’ll want to tie them off with some cute ribbon because cute ribbon just makes everything that much more festive.

N&N TIP: Use dry ice to keep your ice and your popsicles from melting quickly. A lump of dry ice at the bottom of your bowl, cover by regular ice will help slow the melting process.

Have you started planning your Fourth of July festivities? If you think you might want to throw these Red, White, and Blue Ice Cream Popsicles into the mix, make sure you pin it so you can find it when you need it.

  • 1 1/2 cups real vanilla ice cream, softened, I used Breyers Homemade Vanilla
  • 10 fresh strawberries, diced
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • gold sprinkles, optional

Gently mix the blueberries and strawberries with the softened ice cream so that you don't bust your berries.
Pack the softened ice cream into your popsicle molds, gently. Tapping the molds on your counter to make sure it settles all the way to the bottom will help ensure that you don't have any holes in your ice cream popsicle.
Freeze until firm (4-5 hours)
When you are ready to serve, run the mold under cool water for about 2-3 seconds (may take longer for plastic molds). 
Sprinkle with gold sprinkles (optional)
If you are going to put them in plastic bags, let them freeze again before you put them in the bags.
