Homemade popsicles are so easy to make, and these fresh strawberry popsicles are no different. They make deliciously tasty desserts that will satisfy your sweet tooth. Best of all, you can feel good knowing that these homemade treats are healthy strawberry popsicles. They are made with fresh fruit, no artificial dyes, and you can make them without any refined sugar!

Each of these three recipes uses healthy ingredients and results in delicious strawberry popsicles packed with real strawberry flavor (and vitamin C!).

Real fruit strawberry popsicles are the perfect summer treat, whether you’re preparing them for a backyard barbecue or as a cool-down for your kiddos when the warm weather is in full swing.

Why You’ll Love These Popsicles

  • This recipe uses a little bit of natural sweetener (you can use honey or maple syrup). And it makes sweet treats that will hit the spot.
  • Strawberry jam gives the popsicles a softer texture and more fruit flavor.
  • These delicious frozen treats are easy to make.
  • Real fruit popsicles are healthier than any you’ll find at the grocery store.
  • It is simple to create different variations (we’re giving you three different strawberry popsicle recipes to enjoy!)
  • This is a gluten-free and paleo recipe with a vegan option as well.

Ingredients Needed

We’re giving you a basic strawberry popsicle recipe as well as two other ways to make them. Regardless of which one of these refreshing popsicles you go for, each one of these three recipes will keep you cool and your taste buds happy all summer long.

Craving fruity and creamy popsicles? Make our strawberry yogurt popsicles! They feature layers of yogurt with the fresh strawberry mixture. Want to add a deeper strawberry flavor? We suggest our roasted strawberry popsicles.

Here are the simple ingredients you will need for the base strawberry popsicles recipe:

  • fresh strawberries
  • strawberry jam
  • honey or granulated sugar
  • fresh lemon juice
  • vanilla extract
  • salt
  • vanilla yogurt (for strawberry yogurt popsicles), preferably whole milk yogurt or Greek yogurt
Strawberries, honey, salt, vanilla extract, lemon, and strawberry jam.

How to Make Strawberry Popsicles

The best part about this strawberry popsicles recipe is that it’s so simple to follow, and the different variations are easy ways to change it up.

Adding strawberries and honey to a blender.

To make strawberry popsicles, simply combine all the ingredients in a blender or food processor and purée the mixture until it’s smooth. Taste it and add more sugar or honey if it needs it.

Pouring strawberry puree into popsicle molds.

Pour the strawberry purée into a silicone popsicle mold, insert the popsicle sticks into the mold, and freeze the popsicles until they’re solid.

For Roasted Strawberry Popsicles

This variation adds a more concentrated strawberry flavor to the popsicles and results in a popsicle that’s less icy. Simply spread sliced strawberries onto a baking sheet, sprinkle on a little sugar, then bake them for 45-60 minutes. Let them cool in the fridge before you make the strawberry purée popsicle mixture.

For Layered Strawberry Yogurt Popsicles

These popsicles combine our base recipe with a simple addition: vanilla yogurt. If you alternate layers of strawberry puree with yogurt, you can make twice as many popsicles.

Adding yogurt makes them creamy yet refreshing, and you can use your favorite vanilla yogurt of your choice.

For the Best Results

  • Feel free to substitute frozen strawberries for fresh strawberries. If you do, make sure to let the frozen fruit thaw and drain any excess liquid.
  • The strawberry jam gives the popsicles a more concentrated flavor and smoother, less icy texture than traditional popsicles.
  • When you remove the popsicles from the popsicle mold, it’s easier to let the mold sit at room temperature for a few minutes. Or quickly run the mold under warm water while gently pulling the popsicle out.
  • Leave about 1/4 to 1/2 inch headspace at the top of the molds, so they have room for expansion.

These homemade strawberry popsicles are ideal for the summer months when strawberries are in season, and you’re in search of a sweet and fun snack! (You can also make them any time of the year with frozen strawberries). The delicious flavor of the fresh berries take center stage. We can guarantee you’ll be thrilled with this easy popsicle recipe.

  2. Pour the strawberry puree into popsicle molds and freeze until solid (8 to 10 hours). 

For Roasted Strawberry Popsicles

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper (the parchment will make it easier to clean the sticky juices). 
  2. Spread the sliced strawberries out on a rimmed baking sheet and sprinkle them with 1 teaspoon of sugar. 
  3. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes, stirring occasionally. Scrape the warm berries into a bowl and set them in the fridge to cool.

  5. Pour the strawberry pure into popsicle molds and freeze until solid.

Notes

  • If you use frozen strawberries, let them thaw first and drain the excess liquid. 
  • The strawberry jam is optional, but it gives the popsicles a more concentrated flavor and smoother, less icy texture than traditional popsicles.  
  • Roasting the strawberries will also concentrate the flavors and give the popsicles a less icy texture. 
  • Leave about 1/4 to 1/2 inch of headspace when you fill the popsicle molds to allow for expansion 
  • Use a rimmed baking sheet when you roast the strawberries so the juices don't run all over the oven.

Dahn- I am busy with a large bucket of fresh strawberries trying to figure out what to to with them when I stumbled on this popsicle recipe . As I scroll down I come across your name & as you have a rather unique spelling, I knew it had to be you! I am about to start roasting my berries & I will have to let you know how the popsicles turn out. Such an unexpected surprise!!

Made the popsicles & they were the absolute best! Roasting the berries made such a difference - it amps up the flavor to a whole new level. The only way I can describe it is to say that it's a more grown up flavor.. Thanks so much?
