Summer is in full swing here and sometimes the temperatures are hot! Keep cool during the summer months with popsicles! I know we sure enjoy our fair share of popsicles!
These Strawberries and Cream Popsicles make for a delicious and healthy snack! A tasty treat!
Kids love to help make them and enjoy them on a hot summer day. We always have popsicles in the freezer during the summer. When the kids are playing or working hard they can come and grab a popsicle for a snack. A healthy and refreshing snack. Who doesn’t love popsicles?!
Flavors of fresh sweet strawberries combine with a smooth cream in this popsicle.
I used a Norpro Frozen Ice Pop Maker and this recipe works out perfectly for it! Simply fill the popsicle cells and put the sticks in and place in the freezer. The hardest part is waiting for them to freeze and set up.
When the popsicle are ready to enjoy, remove the lid and simply run the the maker under warmer water to loosen the popsicle, and make easier to pull out.
Keep cool on those hot days with popsicles. Kids love them!
This recipe can easily be used with any kind of fruit.
Strawberries and Cream Popsicle Recipe
- 1 C. whole milk
- 1/4 C. heavy whipping cream
- 1 C. strawberry yogurt
- 2 Tbsp. Clabber Girl Corn Starch
- 1/4 C. granulated sugar, optional
- 1 Tbsp. strawberry extract
- 3 C. fresh strawberries, chopped
Add the milk, heaving whipping cream, and strawberry yogurt to a medium mixing bowl. Then add corn starch and whisk together until smooth. Pour mixture into a saucepan and add the strawberry extract. Whisk in the sugar, if using. Slowly bring the mixture to a boil, while continuously whisking. Continue whisking for about 4 to 5 minutes once mixture begins to boil, to thicken. Remove from heat and set aside and cool a bit.
While cream mixture is cooling, this is when I chop my strawberries. Place the chopped strawberries in a bowl.
Then divide half the cream mixture. Add one half the cream mixture to the strawberry bowl. Stir the strawberries and cream together. Set aside.
Use the other half of the cream mixture and pour a little in each popsicle mold, saving some to top off all the molds at the end.
Then fill molds to the top with the strawberry/cream mixture. Make sure to press down on the filled molds with a spoon, or insert a knife to get any air bubbles out. I banged the mold set on the counter some too. This will help the mixture settle and get out any bubbles. Add more strawberry mixture to the molds as necessary. Lastly top off each mold with the remaining cream mixture. Put the maker top on and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze overnight and remove from popsicle molds to serve.
Enjoy this healthy and frozen summer treat!
