Celebrate the fourth of July in style with these patriotic popsicles! Naturally dye-free and vegan, these easy red, white and blue popsicles use just 5 ingredients and are refined sugar-free as well.


Units Scale

Blue Layer

White Layer

  • sweetened vanilla plant-based yogurt

Red Layer

  • 10 ounces sweetened vanilla plant-based yogurt
  • 2 teaspoons beetroot powder
  • 3-5 Medjool dates, pitted (soft is best)
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Prepare the blue bottom layer. Add vanilla yogurt, dates, vanilla extract and spirulina powder to a blender. Blend until smooth. Pour contents into popsicle molds to fill each one about 1/3 the way up and set in the freezer for 2-3 minutes to prevent bleeding colors with the next layer.
  2. Add the white middle layer to the molds. Carefully spoon vanilla yogurt into each mold until they are 2/3 full. Place molds in the freezer again to set while preparing the final layer.
  3. Prepare the red top layer. Add vanilla yogurt, dates, vanilla extract and beetroot powder to the blender. Blend until smooth. Pour contents into molds until each are full.
  4. Freeze. Cover the molds and insert wooden popsicle sticks. Place in the freezer overnight or at least for several hours until fully frozen. To release the pops, simply run the body of the popsicle mold under warm water for a couple seconds. 


Adjust the number of dates to reach your desired level of sweetness for the red and blue layers.

See the post above for alternative ways to achieve the red and blue colors.
