1cupgreek yogurt(or coconut milk, coconut cream, or coconut yogurt.)
honey, maple syrup, or other sweeteneroptional, to taste
To begin, make your white stars by making white, star-shaped "ice cubes" out of the greek yogurt. You can use coconut milk, coconut cream, or coconut yogurt instead to make these vegan and paleo. You can also sweeten the yogurt first if you want these to be sweeter. You can see that I used a syringe to easily fill the compartments without making a big mess.
Meanwhile, make a puree with your blueberries. You can add a little honey or another sweetener as needed.
Add a white star to the bottom of a flat bottomed popsicle mold. I used small cups with a flat bottom.
Immediately cover them with your blueberry puree and freeze again.
Once frozen, add a layer of yogurt or coconut. Place the popsicle stick into the yogurt layer. I used some aluminum foil to hold the stick up, and then placed them into the freezer to freeze the stick in place.
Puree the strawberries; you can, again, optionally sweeten the puree with honey or another sweetener if you prefer.
When your yogurt layer is frozen, cover it with a layer of strawberry puree and freeze again.
Follow the process with one more layer of yogurt and one more layer of strawberry puree.
When you are ready to serve them, you can ease the popsicles out gently by warming the sides of your cups with warm water while you gently pull on the stick.
