Homemade Strawberry Creamsicle Recipe

You know it is summer when after being outside all day, your kids take a playing break to sit and enjoy a popsicle!  It’s too bad most of the popsicles you can buy in the store are loaded with sugars, artificial flavors and modified chemicals.  The secret all the popsicle makers don’t want you to know is that making your own popsicles is so easy and fast that you won’t ever want to buy popsicles again!  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!

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 recipes that just mash their strawberries, but my girls 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.

If you want your popsicles in just a few minutes, the Zoku is the best pop maker!   You place the base of it in your freezer before hand, and then it only takes 5-7 minutes to  make a popsicle!  We also love the molds shown in this picture.  It is called the Groovy Pop mold and you can buy on Amazon

Voila!

You could blend the yogurt with the strawberries, but I liked the swirled look.  My 3 year old says it was the best popsicle she ever ate.  Really.  Word for word.  I was curious and a bit nervous to see how my girls would react because they aren’t super sweet.  I was pleasantly surprised that they licked them down to the stick! I felt good knowing they were getting a fruit serving as well as protein, 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.

LOVE IT!!!! I can’t WAIT for my kids to try this I can already tell they are going to LOVE THEM. 🙂

We will try this recipe this week! Just got a Zoku popsicle maker and love it! My suggestion is to get the maker that can make 4 pops at a time. I got the same one you pictured here, and I have to watch my kids eat their pops while I wait for mine. That 7-9 minutes seems so long when I want a popsicle, too 🙂

I’ve always tried avoiding those store bought Popsicle even thought they can be quite addicting on a hot summer day. This is very creative and I am definitely going to give it a try, perhaps with a few twists. Thank You!

We love our Zoku!! My boys will eat anything if I make it into a popsicle! Spinach+banana, kale smoothies, etc. My 4 year olds latest request is for pickle juice Popsicles-he loves them!?

These recipes are excellent for seniors too. We want tasty food without the sugar and additives. Also some of us have grand and great grandchildren around. Thanks

We had issue with the fruit treat popsicles a few weeks back that they were top heavy and the pretzel broke and the whole thing landed on the floor – twice! So when I saw these I went out and bought myself some standard popsicle makers and we are very excited to try them as Greek Yoghurt is a staple around here (as are the breyers creamsicle (so I’m keen to find a replacement!)

Wow! I love it. What a healthy tasty snack for kids. The is no reason to buy sugar loaded Popsicles anymore. Fantastic.

I made this in the freezer. They came out so pretty. My oldest loved them my younger kids thought thy were okay. I think the strawberries were tart. I will try again though. They love popsicles and these were easy to make with my vitamix blender.

These would be very easy to sweeten with stevia, if your strawberries were tart or if you had only plain Greek yogurt on hand. My kids love helping me plan and make, and then of course, taste-test, homemade popsicles. I’m adding this one to our Pinterest board of frozen treats! Thanks!

So I tried making these. I had to go out and buy some molds. Sadly they are not coming out of the molds 🙁 I didn’t know what ti do but I ended up spooning them out. It was delious! but I couldn’t eat them as popsicles!

What kind of molds did you use? Sometimes if it is a plastic mold, in order to get it out you will need to dip the outside of the mold in hot water for a few seconds. The popsicle will almost always slide right out. Also, maybe you needed to freeze them longer? Regular molds take at least a couple of hours to freeze. Good luck!

could I blend the yogurt and strawberries instead of alternating spooning it in. I don’t have a Popsicle mold but can’t see why I can’t use an ice cube tray.

I love your recipes, we have tried many already and only discovered you a couple of weeks ago. These look delicious and know we will all be enjoying them 🙂

Did the yogurt separate? I have tried freezing regular yogurt before & it separated so I had to throw it out.

Can these be made with regular yogurt? I don’t like the texture of greek yogurt, or does freezing it make a difference? They sure look yummy and would love to try them!

Id like a link or website for both, the Zohydol and the other Popsicle molds pictured above. I need ones more suitable for older kids rather than toddlers. Thanks

Really want to try this recipe but I don’t have popsicle holders. Can I use small dishes and eat the finished product like a Sorbert?

great recipe but…

over the blender picture you say the girls are “weary” of chunks…..I think you meant “leery” of chunks. Weary would imply they are exhausted….leery would be they don’t really like it

I just made these with peaches! I cannot wait for the family to try them after dinner! Love that they are all natural with none of that unnecessary crap! Thank you so much for sharing!

Has anyone tried it without using the Zoku? I dont have one nor have the money to buy one.

Ya you could do that, or even use Dixie cups (or ice cube trays for smaller ones) with popsicle sticks or just spoons for the sticks! 🙂

I used regular popsicle molds. Still only makes four at a time, but it was like 88 cents at Walmart =)

I do that for my 2 year old too. He will eat all of his fruits and veggies if they are in popsicle form!

Same question about using regular yogurt. My kids like the Yo baby yogurts. Will those work, you think?

Reply

Definitely. You will probably need to add a little liquid to thin it out so that you can pour it into a mold.

I don’t know if I did it wrong or what, but I tried getting the popsicle sticks out of the molds and they wouldn’t bunch. As a matter of fact, one of my popsicle sticks broke when trying to pull it out of the tray. I was so looking forward to having one of these as a snack 🙁

Reply

Oh no! If you are using a regular popsicle mold (rather than the zoku), we sit the bottom of the mold in some warm water to kind of separate the pop from the mold. Then, pull gently.

It would depend on how many you are making at what size molds you have. We start with about 2-3 cups of strawberries, and blend them up. Then if you had 1 cup of yogurt, you could use them alternately.

These look divine. Quick question as I have a child with sensory food issues – what happens with the seeds? Do they blend in too? Because my boy definitely won’t eat them if there are seeds. I’ve tried smoothies and he loves the taste of strawberries (ice cream for example) but wouldn’t touch the smoothie as soon as he hit the first seed. Maybe my ancient blender just isn’t powerful enough or maybe I need to strain but I’m curious what your experience was as I can’t see any seeds in your puree pic. Thanks!

Reply

It depends what blender you have. I use a Blendtec which breaks things down super small – even seeds it breaks up and they are blended in with the mixture. You can use a fine mesh sieve and strain the seeds out if it seems to be a problem.

Living in Australia we are just coming in strawberry season. I managed to get some really fresh strawberries and have made these ice creams. My kids were happy to lick out the bowl and are eagerly waiting for the freezer to do its job. However I have used coconut yoghurt and sweetened it with raw honey as we are on a gfcf diet. Cant wait to receive my Zuko.
