Tricolor Popsicles

Since today is the fourth of July, I thought it would be appropriate to celebrate with popsicles. This annual independence day always me think of popsicles, and sparklers. Although we've never had a yearly tradition celebrating with these two festive items for the fourth day in July, I always like to think that they should be included on this day. So, I made these tricolor treats.

Raspberries, coconut milk and blueberries make up the red, white and blue stripes. The white and blue blended into each other a bit, but I loved the way these turned out. Plus, you can also make them for Bastille Day as well!

Happy fourth!
