TIPS FOR MAKING THE BEST RED WHITE AND BLUE POPSICLES
USE FULL FAT KEFIR FOR CREAMY POPSICLES. If you want to make your popsicles creamy not icy, use whole milk kefir. The fat in the milk will give you a creamy popsicle texture.
ADD SWEETENER IF YOU LIKE SWEET POPSICLES. While the flavored kefir in my recipes is flavorful, it is not as sweet as red white and blue bomb pops. If you want your 4th of July popsicles to be sweeter, add honey or maple syrup to the mix.
FREEZE EACH LAYER SEPARATELY FOR DISTINCT LAYERS. If you don't want your layers to swirl together at all, freeze each layer for at least 1 hour before adding the next layer.
FREEZE YOUR RED WHITE AND BLUE POPS OVERNIGHT BEFORE TRANSFERRING TO STORAGE CONTAINERS. This will allow your popsicles to set completely.

Start your red white and blue pops by mixing up your ingredients! There is NO BLENDING required for this popsicle recipe! All you have to do is use your bottled kefir, and add in the powdered colorings. Shake and then pour into your popsicle molds.
BLUE POPSICLE LAYER
For the blue layer I mixed the kefir with blue spirulina.
RED POPSICLE LAYER
For the red layer, I mixed the kefir with beet root powder!
WHITE POPSICLE LAYER
For the white popsicle layer, I used vanilla kefir.
If you have a FULL bottle of kefir, you can also add your kefir to a bowl and use a whisk to stir it with the food powder.

HOW TO FILL YOUR POPSICLE MOLDS
In my popsicle molds, I started with a blue layer. Pour the blue kefir about ¼ way up the mold.
Next, I heavily poured in half of the vanilla kefir. Pour the white so that the mold is now ½ filled. I wanted the white to mix with the blue a bit and look kind of like the stars in the American flag.
Then I gently poured the red layer on top of the first white layer. Pour until the mold is ¾ full.
For the final layer in my red white & blue popsicles, I gently poured the other half of the vanilla kefir until the popsicle mold was full.
You can also freeze each layer after pouring in your kefir to get distinct stripes on your popsicles.
Make sure you freeze your popsicles AT LEAST 3 hours!! I like to let mine freeze overnight to get really hard!
