If you have never tried making your own homemade popsicles then get excited because this recipe is for YOU! Making fruity and delicious homemade popsicles could not be easier and these creamy strawberry popsicles are the perfect place to start.
These creamy strawberry lime popsicles are made with fresh strawberries and tart lime juice. The addition of creamy coconut milk helps to give the popsicles just the right amount of creaminess and maple syrup sweetens things up a bit. This recipe is obviously a great choice for the warmer spring and summer months but these popsicles are also a tasty treat that you can enjoy all year long.
Ingredients You’ll Need to Make This Strawberry Popsicle Recipe
Fresh Strawberries: if you have access to fresh ripe strawberries, I highly recommend using them for this recipe. However, you could also use frozen strawberries. Just be sure to thaw them completely before using.
Full Fat Coconut Milk: this recipe uses full fat, canned coconut milk to give the popsicles a creamy texture without the use of dairy. You can usually find coconut milk in the Asian grocery aisle of your local grocery store.
Lime Juice: the combination of sweet strawberries and tangy lime juice is absolutely delicious in these popsicles.
Lime Zest: to amplify the lime flavor and give the popsicles a bit of texture, this recipe uses fresh lime zest.
How to Make Frozen Strawberry Popsicles
Step One: First, start by making the creamy popsicle base. To do this, add the strawberries, full fat coconut milk, lime juice, and maple syrup to a high powered blender.
Step Two: Blend the ingredients until everything is completely smooth and creamy.
Step Three: Next, add the lime zest to the blender and use a spoon or spatula to stir until it is well mixed throughout the popsicle mixture.
Step Four: Now, transfer the blended popsicle mixture to popsicle molds. Freeze for 8 hours or overnight until the popsicles are completely frozen solid.
Step Five: When you’re ready to enjoy a popsicle, remove it from the mold and enjoy!
Do I Have to Use Coconut Milk?
Full fat canned coconut milk will give these popsicles the best creamy texture, however, if you have a coconut allergy or cannot seem to find it, you are free to use another liquid. Oat milk or cashew milk would likely work very well in these popsicles and give you a similar result to coconut milk.
Can I Substitute Another Fruit for the Strawberries?
Yes! One of the best things about these popsicles is that the fruit base is easily customizable to work with different fruits of your choosing. Any fruit that you think pairs well with the flavor of lime would be a great option for these popsicles.
Here are a few ideas:
Can I Double the Recipe?
Yes! If you have two sets of popsicle molds, and would like to make more popsicles at a time, feel free to double this recipe and make a double batch of popsicles.
How to Easily Release the Popsicles from the Mold
If you are having a bit of trouble releasing the popsicles from their mold, try running them under warm water for a few seconds to make the popsicles easier to release and remove them from the mold.
How to Store Your Popsicles
The easiest way to store these popsicles is to keep them in their molds. However, you could also remove all of the popsicles from their molds and then transfer them to a freezer safe storage bag or container. When you are ready to eat, just grab a popsicle from the freezer and enjoy!
I hope you give these Strawberry Lime Popsicles a try! They are so easy to make and absolutely delicious!
