Healthy smoothie popsicles with berries.
On a warm summer afternoon, there is nothing more refreshing than a cooling snack, and these strawberry smoothie popsicles are the perfect treat. Whether you want to make them with fresh or frozen strawberries, or another berry altogether, these popsicles are a healthy snack that the whole family is sure to love.
Made with only 3 ingredients these strawberry smoothie popsicles are super simple to prepare and fun for people of all ages to eat and enjoy. Truthfully, they would make a great dessert, afternoon snack or breakfast if you would be so inclined, as they are simply a frozen version of a strawberry banana smoothie. The combination of fresh berries and banana help to naturally sweeten the popsicles so there is no need to add extra sugar, and the banana and coconut milk help to give the popsicle a rich and creamy texture. I used full-fat coconut milk in my recipe, but if you are not a fan of coconut flavour you could use a combination of yoghurt and regular milk to provide the same consistency (about half a cup each).
The flavour combinations for these smoothie popsicles are endless, so don’t limit yourself to just strawberries. Raspberries, blueberries, peaches, cherries or a combination of fruit would all make great popsicles, or you can even go the chocolate route and make my homemade fudgesicles. But if you’re a fan of strawberries, be sure to try these strawberry smoothie popsicles at your next family BBQ, trip to the cottage or on a sunny day for a delightful summer treat.
