Dye-Free Homemade Rocket Pops

Here's a healthy twist on a classic popsicle, just in time for July Fourth--the rocket pop! Who doesn't have a childhood memory of red- and blue-stained lips, teeth, and tongue from one of these pops, usually bought out of an ice cream truck or gas-station ice cream case?

Of course, those stains were courtesy of dangerous dyes, so now that we know better, we do better, right?

Your family can still enjoy this classic patriotic pop without all of the dye, and this rocket pop actually tastes much better than the original, anyway.

I've had a few questions about where to get popsicle molds. You can find traditional-shaped ones here, but if you want an authentic rocket pop look, get these.
