How to Make Healthy Strawberry Popsicles Recipe:
First, place the sliced strawberries into a blender or food processor. Make sure your strawberries have had the stems removed before adding them to your blender.
Then, place your agave nectar and coconut milk into the blender with the strawberries.
Blend it until it looks like a strawberry puree or until nearly smooth. The strawberries should be nearly liquified, with small chunks remaining.
If your popsicle mixture is too thick and your blender has trouble processing the ingredients, add a little bit of hot water or milk to loosen the mixture up and assist in the blending process.
Next, stir the strawberry mixture into the whipped topping until your mixture is thoroughly combined.
After that, pour the mixture into the popsicle molds and then cover the tops with aluminum foil or plastic wrap.
Next, just insert the wooden sticks through the aluminum foil, and then place them in the freezer for 3 to 4 hours or until the popsicles freeze completely. Our easy to use popsicle mold did not require any addition of aluminum foil so it was super easy to use when making our own popsicles.
All that’s left to do is to pop them out when you’re ready for a delicious, refreshing snack. Enjoy!
Seriously, is there anything better than a mouth-watering cool, summertime treat that’s also healthy for you?!
Frequently Asked Questions
What Items Can I Swap or Substitute In This Recipe?
You’d be surprised at just how easy it is to switch up this recipe! For our healthy strawberry popsicles recipe, we used the following:
- Fresh strawberries: You can substitute this with another type of fresh fruit if you’d like a different flavor of fruit popsicles. Additionally, if you want to make strawberry yogurt popsicles, you can mix in different yogurt types of your choice.
- Agave nectar: If agave nectar isn’t available, honey or maple syrup work, too.
- Coconut milk: Switch this out or replace with your favorite type of carton or canned milk: almond milk, rice milk, or regular milk.
- Whipped topping: To make up your own whipped topping, beat some cold heavy cream and powdered sugar into stiff peaks. Or, you can also buy a ready-made topping.
How Can I Store These Strawberries and Cream Popsicles?
If you can’t eat all 10 popsicles right away, just store them safely in air tight container. Pop them in the freezer, and they’ll last for up to six weeks!
How Can I Modify This Recipe to Better Meet My Dietary Needs?
Everyone loves a good sweet treat every now and again, but not everyone loves being unhealthy in the process. Thankfully, there are plenty of options for you!
The unhealthiest ingredient in this recipe is whipped topping because it contains refined sugar. If you’d like to replace it with a healthier option, you can make homemade and unsweetened whipped cream. To do this, whip up some heavy cream without adding brown sugar to it or use natural sugar instead. You can add extra agave nectar, honey, or maple to your popsicle mixture to meet your desired sweetness.
If you can’t have or don’t want dairy, trust us, we didn’t forget about you! For a dairy-free homemade whipped cream, you can whip up some coconut cream or full-fat coconut cream to make a delicious, fluffy topping.
When you make whipped cream yourself, be sure to refrigerate your mixing bowl for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Also, your cream should be chilled before mixing. If both are already cold, pour 1 ¼ cups of cream of your choice into the bowl. After you beat them into soft stiff peaks, you can use them as your whipping topping.
