  4. Enjoy: run hot water around the outside of the popsicle mold to remove it easily. Enjoy one at a time or serve to a crowd!

Here are a few basic tools to make homemade popsicles. Once you’ve invested in them, you can repeat this with just about any fruit!

Recipe Variations

You don’t have to stick to only strawberries for these homemade ice pops! Here are a few variations to switch things up:

  • Add 1/2 cup greek yogurt to make them creamy.
  • Swap the strawberries for another fresh fruit like blueberries, peaches, pineapple, or raspberries.
  • Try them with fresh herbs like basil or mint.

Can I Reduce the Sugar?

Besides adding flavor, sweeteners helps prevent ice crystals from forming in the popsicles. It also lowers the freezing point, which helps keep popsicles soft (rather than crunchy).

You definitely need a sweetener to achieve both of these things, so I wouldn’t omit it altogether, but you could reduce the amount to 1/4 cup with similar results.

Can I Use Frozen Strawberries Instead of Fresh?

You can use frozen strawberries if fresh ones aren’t available or in season. Both whole frozen strawberries and sliced frozen strawberries work. But, sliced strawberries thaw faster. Make sure you thaw them first. Just place them in a bowl at room temperature with the honey for about 20 minutes to help pull out the juices.

How Long Do They Take To Freeze?

You need to let these homemade strawberry popsicles freezer for a minimum of 4 hours, but ideally overnight for best results.

How to Store

Once they’re unmolded, lay them flat on a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze them solid for up to 1 week. For longer term storage, wrap each popsicle individually in plastic wrap and store in a freezer bag for up to 1 month.
