Red, White and Blue Popsicles

  • Author: Elaine Gordon
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x
  • Diet: Vegan



Blue Layer

  • 10 ounces unsweetened plant-based yogurt 
  • 5 large Medjool dates, pitted (soft is best)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 teaspoons blue majik powder or blue butterfly pea powder

White Layer

Red Layer

  • 10 ounces plant-based yogurt 
  • 2 teaspoons beet root powder (or cherries)
  • 5 Medjool dates, pitted, soft is best
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Blue Layer: To a blender add 1yogurt, dates and vanilla.  To make it blue add blue majik powder or blue butterfly pea powder.  If you have trouble getting your blender going you may need to add a couple tablespoons of plant-based milk (I use almond milk and start with 1 tablespoon and increase to a maximum of 4 tablespoons).  If you don’t have blue spirulina or blue butterfly pea powder on hand you can use blueberries but it will turn out more purple than blue. Pour the blue layer into the popsicle molds filling each 1/3 of the way up.  Set in freezer a couple minutes before adding the next layer so the colors don’t bleed together.
  2. White Layer: Carefully spoon vanilla sweetened plant-based yogurt into the molds until they are 2/3 full.  Place in freezer to set while you prepare the red layer.  I love Culiina brand.
  3. Red Layer: To the blender add yogurt, beet root powder, dates and vanilla extract.  Blend everything together just like the blue layer adding almond milk to thin as needed.  If you don’t have beet root powder you could blend in cherries but it might look slightly more pink than red unless you use a lot.  Pour the red layer until the molds are full.  Cover and insert wooden popsicle sticks.  Place in freezer overnight ideally or at least a couple hours to fully freeze.
  4. To release the pops simply run the body of the popsicle mold under hot water for a couple seconds.  Here are the popsicle molds pictured (affiliate link).
