Looking for a guilt-free dessert to make for your 4th of July celebration? These patriotic pops are a great alternative to most store bought versions that have a ton of added sugar. I whipped these up for our BBQ for my littleman and his friends to enjoy on their breaks from the pool. They do require a bit of prep time because of the layering, but they are easy to make and taste great.

Adding in a scoop of Shakeology kicks up the health factor to these pops, and anytime I can sneak some extra nutrients into a recipe I’m all for it. These popsicles are fun, festive and healthy!

I hope you all enjoy and have a great holiday!

    What if you don’t have strawberry Shakeology?

    • Autumn

      Hey Nyna, you can skip it and just use frozen strawberries 🙂
