    Why you will love this recipe!

    • Easy to make: It takes minutes to make up a batch of these popsicles, you just have to be patient and let them freeze!
    • Kid-friendly: These strawberry popsicles are a great healthy treat for kids of all ages. They are creamy and sweet without being loaded with lots of sugar.
    • Healthier: These are one delicious ways to eat your vitamins thanks to the fresh strawberries. The coconut milk contains healthy fats and minerals too. They are also vegan and low carb.

    Ingredients

    • Strawberries: Strawberries are a great source of vitamin C, folate and potassium as well as lots of antioxidants.
    • Coconut Milk: Use canned coconut milk rather than cartoned as it’s thicker and creamier. Full fat is better to use than lite.
    • Sweetener: I used stevia to keep these popsicles low carb, but any granulated sweetener can be used.

    How to make strawberry popsicles

    • Add the strawberries to a food processor with one tablespoon of Stevia, blend all together until you have a smooth purée. Set aside.
    • Pour coconut milk into a bowl, add two tablespoons of Stevia and stir to combine.
    • Pour two tablespoons of the Strawberry purée into the popsicles mold, then add two tablespoons of coconut milk. Repeat this process of two tablespoons of strawberry purée and two tablespoons of coconut milk until the mold is full.

    • Place the popsicles mold into the freezer for about 4 – 5 hours or until the popsicles are completely frozen.

    How long do the strawberry popsicles keep?

    These popsicles will keep well in the freezer for up to a month, after that time, the texture of the coconut milk can start to change a little, but they will still be good to eat.

    To serve, remove the popsicles from the mold by running warm tap water over the outside of the mold for about 10 – 20 seconds. Gently pull the popsicle sticks out and enjoy!

    Can you use frozen strawberries?

    I found that the best results were with fresh strawberries, but you can make these with frozen if that’s what you have to hand. There’s no need to defrost them first, just pop them straight into your blender to make the puree.

    Can you make these with other types of fruit?

    Yes! This strawberry popsicle recipe works great with all types of fruit. Cherry, blueberries, and mango all work great, so feel free to experiment!

    Do you have to use coconut milk?

    Coconut milk adds a nice subtle flavor to these keto strawberry popsicles and it’s so rich and creamy. You could also make these with plain or Greek yogurt for a similar texture.
