Who doesn’t love a fresh-fruit frozen treat once the warm weather sets in? And especially since strawberries are in abundance in my area I’m finding all kinds of good uses for them!
I got inspired the other day when I was at Bed Bath & Beyond and they had these BPA-free popsickle holders by the checkout counter. They are festive and even have a little straw to sip from once the popsickle starts to melt and so messes are kept at a minimum.
Simple as all get out to make here’s what I did:
- 2 cups buttermilk or coconut milk (yogurt or Amasai would be great as well!)
- 2 cups whole de-stemmed strawberries
- 1/4 cup honey or more to taste
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend on high for about 1-2 minutes. Experiment and try other fruits and liquids and just have fun with the kids in the kitchen! Pour nearly to the top of the popsickle holder and snap on the top and place in freezer overnight. Any leftover liquid, drink it! You’ll need to run some hot water over the popsickle you’re trying to release for about one minute before you can pull it out and enjoy it!
Tell me about some of your fave popsickle combinations!
