Hey MouseWatchers! Today we’re bringing a little Disney magic to our 4th of July Celebration with these adorable Patriotic Mickey Mouse Pops. I just happen to have this adorable vintage Mickey Mouse popsicle mold that was a gift from my mother-in-law but this recipe can be adjusted for any size or shape of popsicle mold you have.
INGREDIENTS popsicle mold of your choice 1/2 cup strawberries (fresh or frozen) 1/2 cup blueberries(fresh or frozen) 1/2 cup greek yogurt (plain or flavored) water
DIRECTIONS Puree your strawberries and blueberries (separately) in a blender or food processor. Add just enough water to thin each mixture to a pourable consistency. Pro tip: if your blueberry mixture looks more purple than blue, just add a few drops of blue food coloring.
Put yogurt in a small bowl and add water a few tablespoons at time. Add enough water to thin the yogurt to a consistency that it easily pours. Stir until well combined.
Pour the thinned strawberry mixture into the bottom third of each popsicle mold. Freeze for at least 30 minutes (or until layer is semi-solid) before adding the next layer to prevent the layers from mixing together.
Pour the thinned yogurt mixture into the middle third of the popsicle molds. Freeze for at least 30 minutes (or until layer is semi-solid) before adding the next layer to prevent the layers from mixing together.
Pour the thinned blueberry mixture into the top third of each popsicle mold. Insert popsicle sticks into each popsicle mold.
Freeze overnight or until completely frozen solid.
My vintage mold only makes four small popsicles, so you’ll need to adjust the amounts of fruit puree and yogurt for larger molds. This recipe is super simple and flexible. You could easily substitute blackberries for the blueberries or raspberries for the strawberries. I used vanilla yogurt for these because that’s just what I had, but you could use plain greek yogurt if you more of a tart flavor. You could even add some vodka or tequila to the mix if you want to make an adult version.
When your popsicles are ready, fill a bowl with room temperature or slightly warm water and dip the bottom of the molds into the bowl for a few seconds. Try to pull the popsicles out. If they don’t easily slide out, immerse again and repeat as needed.
