Get ready for the Fourth of July with homemade bomb pops. Made with real fruit, they’re more wholesome version of the classic frozen treats! Makes about 12 popsicles.

Who doesn’t love bomb pops? They’re a classic summer treat, and they’re just so good. But, they’re probably not the healthiest. They are probably loaded with nasty chemicals and sugar, and while I still indulge every once in a while, I thought it might be nice to enjoy some guilt free bomb pops this Fourth of July.

After my kiwi mojito popsicles were such a success – and so easy to make. I figured it was worth a shot. Of course, these aren’t quite as simple, and they take a decent amount of time to make (only because you need to freeze each layer individually), but they’re totally worth it. They’re just sweet enough, and the color is all natural.

Yes, there’s added sugar in here, but you can totally leave it out if you want (just maybe put a little in the white layer or you’ll have super bland, frozen coconut milk) or substitute a different sweetener like honey or stevia.

It’s totally up to you. Just be sure you actually wait the full hour between layers. Trust me. I didn’t and I totally ruined one popsicle before realizing that the coconut milk had completely mixed into the strawberry layer. When you’re ready to remove your popsicles from the mold, run them under warm water for a second or two to loosen them up. Then you can either eat them right away or wrap and refreeze them.

P.S. This is the popsicle mold* I used. It’s super heavy duty, and I love that it doesn’t use plastic sticks!
