Homemade Strawberry Goodness

I made these completely from scratch, and because of that, these strawberry popsicles are so much healthier than the 'flavoured ice' found in stores. No mystery ingredients here!

As strawberries are naturally sweet berries, you can omit the sugar in the ingredients list and turn this into a frozen berry snack, sweetened using 100% natural sugars!

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 hours
Ready in: 5 hours 15 min
Yields: 5 delicious portions

Ingredients

  • 3 cups fresh strawberries, chopped
  • .5 cup (whipping) cream
  • 4 tbsp sugar, any type (optional)
  • 1 pinch cinnamon
  • 6 tbsp yogurt, plain or flavoured
  • .25 cups fresh blueberries, for decoration

Whipping Cream

Feel free to use whichever type of whipping cream you want, even milk or buttermilk works well. The lightest popsicles are achieved with 33% whipping cream. Using buttermilk will give the popsicles somewhat of a frozen yogurt taste. It will take some experimenting on your part to get the mixture the way you want it.

How to Make Strawberry Popsicles

  1. Chop up your strawberries, if you haven't already done so. No need for extremely tiny pieces, that's what you've got technology for.
  2. Put in a bowl and mix with an electric mixer on 'high' until well blended and there are almost no strawberry pieces left. You could also use a blender for this step, but I personally prefer an electric mixer. It's much easier to wash after, and I've gotten so used to it over the years.
  3. Add the rest of the ingredients, except for the blueberries. Mix slowly with a spoon and then again with the electric mixer (or blender).
  4. If you wish to have blueberries inside the popsicles, feel free to add some to the mixture now. Mix with a spoon until the berries are well spread out.
  5. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds (or cups). The first time I made these, I literally just used some plastic cups I found in the cupboard and a chopstick broken in half to replace a popsicle stick. Use what you have at home; what truly matters is the taste, not the appearance.
  6. Decorate with some blueberries on top. If using plastic cups (or anything that doesn't come with a cover), be sure to cover the top with aluminum foil or some kind of lid to prevent that awful 'freezer taste' from ruining your snack.
  7. Place in the freezer for at least 4-5 hours or until fully frozen.
  8. Take out and enjoy!

My Tips for Homemade Recipes

My general rule is to simply use whatever I have in the fridge and hope for the best. This way I sometimes create exciting new recipes, whereas other times my creations just taste 'alright.' I am proud to say that there hasn't been a time when something I made tasted so bad that I had to throw it out. True, sometimes the finished result looked unappealing... but after all, I don't eat with my eyes, do I?

Your thoughts are always welcome

        @rochelle-frank I used to freeze my homemade ice creams in bowls, but as you noticed, it becomes too firm to be able to easily spoon out and serve. I've also made these with a mixture of fresh cantaloupe and strawberries. I personally didn't like the taste combination, but my sister delightfully ate the popsicles :)

        Experiment with other fruit and berry combinations, you can never go wrong with frozen fruits :D

        Fresh strawberries, that looked very good, were on sale so I bought a bunch of them today. I saved out some of the best firm fresh ripe ones, and used the rest as you suggested. Instead of making popsicles, I just put the mixture in a glass bowl to freeze. It was a little firm to spoon out, but very good.

        The best thing is that it is about 65% fruit, and you can control the amount of sugar and fat according to what dairy products you use. I'm sure this can be done with other fruits, too. I love fresh fruit, but sometimes it starts to get overripe before we can use it all. This is a good way to save it.
