  • 1 small frozen banana
  • 1/2 cup coconut cream {read notes}
  • 1/2 cup frozen strawberries or raspberries
  • 1/2 cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • stevia
  • popsicle molds

Summer is in full throttle around here these days!  We were at the beach the other day and the sand was so hot that a large lab was literally crying and lifting its paws one by one off the sand.  I almost leapt up with super hero powers, but the owner actually saved the day by scooping up the poor, whining pooch like it was a beach towel.

Turns out the owner had the super powers because she was so very pregnant , and most likely past her due date , that I bet they served eviction papers to that baby (babies more like it).  She had to be a super hero throwing that big dog across her hip , don’t you think?

Anyway, back to the reason for this post, celebrating July 4th in all her (sweltering) glory!  I am so glad congress passed a bill almost a 100 years later to commemorate the Declaration of Independence for this national holiday!

I am always humbled at the thought of how far we have come as a nation; and besides,  who doesn’t love celebrating the spirit and freedoms of America?  I should thank my dad (and his brothers) for impressing on my heart this patriotic, devoted love that I have today for our beautiful country.

Prep time
Total time
  • 1 small frozen banana
  • ½ cup coconut cream {read notes}
  • ½ cup frozen strawberries or raspberries
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 cup filtered water
  • stevia
  • popsicle molds
  1. In a strong blender or Vitamix, puree banana and coconut cream until creamy.
  2. Taste and add stevia if you like it sweeter. Pour into a separate jar and put in refrigerator.
  3. In Vitamix, puree the strawberries/raspberries with ½ cup water until creamy.
  4. Add a few dashes of stevia at a time, tasting as you go. Pour into a jar and set aside.
  5. In Vitamix, puree blueberries and ½ cup water until creamy. Add a few dashes of stevia as you taste.
  6. Pour into a jar and set blueberry mixture in the refrigerator.
  7. In the popsicle mold, pour the "first" layer using the red strawberry blend. Fill about ½ " or 1".
  8. You will freeze it up to ½ hour and pour "second" stripe using the white banana blend; fill the same amount and freeze for ½ hour.
  9. IMPORTANT if you are using wooden sticks place them in the "third" stripe of white.
  10. Freeze it again for up to a ½ hour and alternate white with red stripes until you have 2-2½ inches left at the top for the blueberry stripe.
  11. Lastly, freeze up to a few hours until they set.
Depending on the type of popsicle molds you use you may have left over mixture. Also, keep in mind when you will be putting sticks in as I goofed that up for you the first time. Yes, I had the hammer out. Make sure you stabilize sticks. The blueberry mixture is more purple but still gives the effect we are going for with out the artificial colors. If you follow directions there will be no need to rinse out blender container. Be careful with your stevia as too much gives it a strong flavor. You could use honey but I was trying to keep the natural sugar low. Please use organic when you can especially with the berries.

With a Spoonful of Patriotism,
