Ice Cream Popsicles – Red, White, Blue + Gold Stars

Blueberries & strawberries tucked in vanilla ice cream make the perfect red, white & blue ice cream popsicles. Edible gold stars make them even more festive. 

The world’s pickiest eater actually lives in my house! No joke, as a person who hasn’t met many food items I won’t eat, I’m not sure how that happened! And so, after I made these Iced Mocha Latte Popsicles and the world’s pickiest eater actually liked them, I knew I wanted to make another popsicle recipe that he would hopefully like as well.

I have to pat myself on the back and tell you that I have, yet again, made something that the world’s pickiest eater actually eats and then says ‘yummmm!’ while eating it. And when this ‘yummmm’ food is so very easy to make…I’ve flat out scored. These Red, White and Blue Ice Cream Popsicles checked both boxes.

And if you’re thinking…’well, of course, he ate it…it’s a sweet dessert.’ Oh no my friend, his list of food he doesn’t like changes regularly…so while I thought he liked chocolate and made a batch of brownies…he didn’t touch those brownies. And truthfully, while he loves these ice cream popsicles this week, it’s entirely possible that vanilla will be on his ‘no thanks’ list next week, so you never know.

But I digress…

Softened vanilla ice cream, chopped fresh strawberries, and fresh blueberries not only are a perfect summer taste combination for your tongue, but they just so happen to be perfectly patriotic for our upcoming Fourth of July Festivities, especially when sprinkled with edible gold stars! Are you kidding me…red, white, and blue, AND gold stars. Mic drop. You all loved the festive red, white, and blue sugar cookies that I shared last year, so I am so excited to add another patriotic recipe with these red, white and blue popsicles to the mix!

I used store-bought Breyer’s Homemade Vanilla Ice Cream for this tasty treat and will surely use it again; but if you are a purist and an ice cream maker to boot…then go homemade my friend!

These stainless steel molds are my favorite for popsicles; they release easily, don’t retain flavors or stain like plastics sometimes do, you can make just one popsicle at a time if you wish, they are dishwasher safe and they will last forever. Yesterday my two men went on their annual fireworks shopping spree, so all the pieces of our family festivities are falling in place…we know what we’ll have for dessert and we know what entertainment we’ll enjoy while we’re enjoying said dessert. 

Our neighborhood actually throws a great fireworks show…on the 3rd of July.  Which actually works out great…we get our big booms in on the 3rd and then can stay right in our back yard to watch the pyrotechnics that Rob and Terry orchestrate on the 4th.

But back to these ice cream popsicles…

 You can make these ahead of time and remove them from the molds and keep them in the freezer. That way, if you need more than the 6 that one mold set makes you could make 6, freeze them and continue to reuse the mold until you have enough…while surely not time-consuming you will need to allocate the 5 hours freeze time for each batch.

If you go this route, put your frozen popsicles on a sheet of parchment paper on a cookie sheet so that they don’t stick.

  • 1 1/2 cups real vanilla ice cream softened, I used Breyers Homemade Vanilla
  • 10 fresh strawberries diced
  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • gold sprinkles optional


  • Gently mix the blueberries and strawberries with the softened ice cream so that you don't bust your berries.
  • Pack the softened ice cream into your popsicle molds, gently. Tapping the molds on your counter to make sure it settles all the way to the bottom will help ensure that you don't have any holes in your ice cream popsicle.
  • Freeze until firm (4-5 hours)
  • When you are ready to serve, run the mold under cool water for about 2-3 seconds (may take longer for plastic molds). 
  • Sprinkle with gold sprinkles (optional)
  • If you are going to put them in plastic bags, let them freeze again before you put them in the bags.

Tucking your frozen popsicles in 4 X 6 treat bags makes them easily portable. Of course, you’ll want to tie them off with some cute ribbon because cute ribbon just makes everything that much more festive. 

N&N TIP: Use dry ice to keep your ice and your popsicles from melting quickly. A lump of dry ice at the bottom of your bowl, cover by regular ice will help slow the melting process.

  1. These sound delicious and are perfect for a patriotic celebration. The edible gold stars are such a nice extra touch! I had to smile while reading your comments about your picky eater as I have one like that in my house as well….what they liked last week or last month may not be something they like today. The ingredients of these Popsicles seem to all be on the “acceptable list” at the moment so I’ll be trying this out soon. I just might have to purchase one of those Popsicle molds too. I love the fact that the stainless steel won’t stain or hold odors like plastic, and dishwasher safe is a nice bonus. Thanks for sharing such an easy, festive and fun dessert.

    1. Hey Dorene, good to know I’m not alone…but man does it stick in my craw. Right now all he eats is Ramen noodles, which I refuse to buy, so he uses his hard earned money to buy them in boxes from Amazon! UGH! I just have to close my eyes and pretend i don’t see.

      Hope you enjoy the popsicles…they were a hit.

      Hugs, Lynn

  2. Oh Lynn, these look so super yummy! I will have to make them! And I love the stainless molds too. I have the plastic ones and I will have the stainless. I love pops and this recipe is super!

  3. This Saturday we’re actually invited to a 4th of July party here on the American Naval Base, so it’ll be a fun night! Your beautiful and [I’m sure] very tasty popsicles would be a great addition! Even as an everyday snack! Enjoy your holiday Lynn, unfortunately I couldn’t play the video, not sure if it’s because of my location… Have a fun week!

  4. These are not only pretty to look at but also must be very delicious! Happy Fourth my dear friend. I have so many fond memories of watching the fireworks.
