The 'Red, White & Blue Berry Coconut Stripe Pops' from the Free People blog are the perfect 4th of July dessert to cool off in the heat, as well as show off patriotism.

Although there are many 4th of July recipes that make use of artificial colors for the sake of creating food and drinks in the iconic colors of the American flag, this frozen dessert recipe makes use of only what nature has to offer. The recipe calls for a refreshing assortment of strawberries, coconut, blueberries, blackberries and coconut sugar, or another natural dry sweetener of choice.

There will undoubtedly be many more Independence Days and 4th of July desserts to come, sweeteners and artificial ingredients are disappearing in these recipes as many consumers favor options for healthy celebrations.
