Strawberries are so sweet and juicy in the summer they are the perfect fruit to make popsicles with. These Strawberry Creamsicle Recipe have only 2 ingredients and will be a summer favorite for sure!
How to Make Strawberry Creamsicles at Home
First we start out with beautiful red strawberries. The great thing about this recipe is that you can use strawberries that might be on their way out. If they are too mushy to eat, use them to make these popsicles!
Rinse well, and cut the greens off.
Blend. I didn’t add water or juice, or anything. I love my Blendtec for that reason. It really does blend anything. If your blender isn’t quite as powerful, you could add a little water/juice if you want. I know of some strawberry popsicle recipes direct you to just mash the strawberries, but my kids are weary of ‘chunks’ and so I like to make these popsicles to be smooth.
The strawberries blend into a beautiful puree which you can add right to your popsicle molds. Spoon some of the puree into the bottom of the mold, and then alternate with yogurt and puree until the mold is full. This will give you the pretty swirled look.
Do I Need to Add Sugar to My Strawberry Popsicles?
My popsicle recipe doesn’t call for any sugar. I know that some people feel like they need to add sugar in order to lower the freezing point and so the popsicle has a softer ‘bite’. That is totally fine but for me I feel like it is more important to help train my kids tastebuds to like the natural flavors of food without the extra sugar all of the time.
Why Are These Popsicles Healthy?
These strawberry popsicles offer your kids a serving of fruit and protein as well as fiber and calcium! Store bought popsicles are basically sugar and water and won’t keep you full for 5 minutes. These creamsicles however definitely have substance and are actually a balanced snack.
