I Almost Have to Apologize

I will tell you a secret. I HATE Fourth of July desserts. I can't stand American Flag Cakes, made with berries and white frosting. So, uh... Are there any other Fourth of July desserts?
Against my better judgment, I made Fourth of July popsicles. The cherries were sweet enough, but the blueberries were downright dull. They're not really blue, people. Purple on the outside, green on the inside.
I thought I'd mince up the fruit and sweeten it, but then we'd just be getting a purple popsicle.
So I cowboyed up. This was only my second popsicle attempt, and I still seem to be stuck on buttermilk as a medium, but it's so fantastic. I sweetened the buttermilk; oversweetened it, actually, because some of the fruit was not sweet enough.
And. Um. That is the recipe. Freeze, eat.
Enjoy, really. Lots.

My two 4th of July desserts: gooseberry fool with blueberries on top (almost color appropriate) and gin/cucumber/lime/mint popsicles. A lovely pale green (sorry no pics) that even the non gin drinkers liked. It was 103 in NYC yesterday...we need more popsicles!
