Reviews for Patriotic Pops
"This turned out thick for me like others mentioned. These aren't very sweet and my kids don't care for them as is. I add a bit of sugar and the kids like it better."
"I added a 1/4 cup of juice to 2 cups strawberries and a 1/4 cup of juice to 2 cups of blueberries, which helped thin it out and sweeten the fruit puree. With those quantities and 16 oz of vanilla yogurt, I got 10 popsicles."
"I added a little juice to the strawberry and blueberry parts to thin it out a bit while it blended. That worked pretty well, but my son didn't like it much. I did add banana, milk and honey to the middle (white) part. That was his favorite (and mine too). They do look nice, but the berries were pretty messy. I'm try it again soon with a few alterations to fit our tastes."
"strawberry and blueberry parts were pretty tart. we put banana in the middle and that was our favorite flavor. They are pretty."
