so not a grill: Paleo popsicles for July 4th

paleo popsicle 3 shotThere’s nothing better than a popsicle in this sweltering heat, right? And nothing better than a little red, white and blue treat on the fourth of July, either.

These popsicles are crazy easy to make with stuff you most likely already have in your fridge — yogurt, honey, fresh fruit — and they’re perfect for everyone at the party. All you’ll need is a 10-count popsicle mold and you’re set! Serve ’em anytime this weekend and you’re guaranteed to be the hit of the party, especially with any little ones. Kids will love these! (The fact that they’re actually good for you can be our little secret.)

If you have leftover strawberries and blueberries throw them on top of the vanilla chia pudding I told you about yesterday, another easy Independence Day snack. And if you want another way to show your patriotic pride, follow my intern Jessica’s lead (the cutie pictured below) and give yourself a red, white and blue manicure.

Red, White + Blue Paleo Popsicles



  • 1 cup plain yogurt (I used goat’s milk, but you can use any kind)
  • 2 TBSP honey
  • 1 pint blueberries
  • 1/2 pound of strawberries, green stems removed


  1. Combine yogurt and honey in a small bowl, then spoon two spoonfuls of that mixture in the bottom of your 10-count popsicle mold.
  2. Whiz your blueberries in a Vitamix/food processor/blender until a smooth puree forms, about 30 seconds to 1 minute. Then pour that on top of the yogurt (in the popsicle molds), leaving about 2 inches from the top.
  3. Whiz strawberries just like the blueberries, then pour that puree into the popsicle molds and fill to the top.
  4. Use a popsicle stick to lightly stir the layers of popsicle to create a swirled effect. Place popsicle sticks in the center of the molds and place in the freezer for about 3-4 hours, or until they’re frozen. To remove, briefly run them under warm water and pull gently on the stick. Enjoy!
