Patriotic popsicles get my vote for the ultimate celebratory 4th of July snack! These sweets on a stick are loaded with fresh fruit and creamy yogurt, plus they’re sweetened simply with a squeeze of honey, so you can feel good about second servings for both you and your tiny taste-testers.

How to Make Popsicles Without a Mold

Don’t let the lack of a traditional popsicle mold prevent you from making these treats. Grab the paper cups (drinking glasses also work well) and let the layering begin. You can also forgo the popsicle sticks for sturdy metal straws.

How Long Do Popsicles Last In the Freezer? 

If they’re kept at a constant frozen temperature, popsicles can last up to 6 months in the freezer. I keep mine in the popsicle mold to prevent freezer burn from occurring.
