These strawberry popsicles are the perfect summer treat – refreshing, aromatic, sweet, and healthy. The strawberries give them the bright colour, as well as an abundance of vitamins. This easy popsicle recipe is gluten, dairy and refined sugar free, and it’s bound to become a favourite this summer.
This recipe is part of the ‘My Mum’s Kitchen’ recipe series. Here, I share my mum’s delicious recipes – because such yumminess requires to be seen. And eaten. You can find all posts in the series here or in the main menu under ‘MY MUM’S KITCHEN’.
Let me tell you about UK weather this week: hot, hot, hot, too hot, I’m melting here… and today: Antartica wants its weather back! It’s cold and it’s miserable and it’s raining and yes, I know it’s the UK, but honestly?! (Okay, okay, it’s still around 20 ºC but come on.)
This healthy melted ice cream smoothie bowl tastes like everything a decadent ice cream sundae should be, but without the brain freeze, the sugar high or the subsequent energy crash. In fact, you could easily have this 10 minute, 6 ingredient vegan paleo dessert for breakfast – and you would still be getting a fairly balanced, wholesome meal that also happens to be gluten and dairy free!
This is what happens when you really want a decadent ice cream sundae, but it’s cold and miserable outside, you’re battling with a cold and you know that a freezing cold ice cream isn’t the best idea. (Even though ice cream is always a great idea.) But we won’t be defeated – it’s June and that fact alone demands that if we want ice cream, ice cream is what we’ll get.
These vegan ice cream bars are super healthy and insanely delicious at the same time. The easy 2 for 1 recipe includes two ice cream flavours – chocolate and raspberry, both made even prettier with a fetching marbled effect. The chocolate shell is smooth and thick, and gives a satisfying snap when you bite into it. With little to no effort, you can make your own ice cream popsicles, which are way better than any shop-bought ones, in every single way.
Ice cream bars. Popsicles (or pops). Ice lollies. Ice cream on a stick. That cold-and-sweet-creaminess-on-a-stick-often-covered-in-chocolate thingy. All apparently acceptable synonyms. (Okay, the last one isn’t, but you totally knew what I was talking about, didn’t you?).
