Strawberries and Cream Ice Pops

Most people like strawberries, and most people like ice pops. Why not put them together and make strawberry ice pops? These are amazing, and they definitely taste much better if you can use fresh strawberries – however, frozen ones will work as well.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients to the puree, and whisk together
  4. Pour your mixture into an ice pop mold, or if you don’t have one you can use small cups, like Dixie cups.
  5. Stick in the freezer.
  6. When they are partially set up you can stick in popsicle sticks if you like.

Fruit and Yogurt Ice Pops

If you’re not crazy about ice pops that are pure fruit, why not try fruit and yogurt ice pops? They are very similar to make, but taste completely different.

Ingredients:

  • 2 Cups Mixed fruit – blueberries, strawberries, raspberries, etc.
  • 1 Cup Yogurt
  • 1/2 Cup Simple Syrup

  5. Stick in the freezer.
  6. When they are partially set up you can stick in popsicle sticks if you like.
