Strawberries are so sweet and juicy in summer that they are the perfect fruit to use to make popsicles. This strawberry cremesicle recipe has just 2 ingredients and is sure to become a summer favorite!
How to make strawberry creamsicles at home
First we start with nice red strawberries. The great thing about this recipe is that you can use strawberries that are on the way out. If they're too mushy to eat, use them to make these popsicles!
Rinse well and cut off the greens.
Mixture. I didn't add any water or juice or anything like that. That's why I love my Blendtec. It really mixes everything up. If your blender isn't quite as powerful, you can add some water / juice if you like. I know of some strawberry popsicle recipes where you just need to puree the strawberries, but my kids are tired of "chunks" and that's why I like making these popsicles smooth.
The strawberries melt into a nice puree that you can put straight into your popsicle molds. Put some puree on the bottom of the mold and then mix alternately with yoghurt and puree until the mold is full. This will give you the pretty swirl look.
Do I need to add sugar to my strawberry ice cream on a stick?
My popsicle recipe doesn't call for sugar. I know some people feel like they need to add sugar to get the freezing point down and the popsicle has a softer "bite". That's perfectly fine, but for me it's more important to train my kids' taste buds to like the natural flavors of foods without the added sugar all the time.
Why are these popsicles healthy?
This strawberry ice cream on a stick offers your children a serving of fruit and protein as well as fiber and calcium! Store-bought popsicles are essentially sugar and water and won't fill you up for 5 minutes. These creamsicles definitely have substance and are actually a balanced snack.
