Strawberries and Cream Popsicles

Strawberries and Cream Popsicles recipe

One of the great flavor combinations - strawberries and cream make a soothing, frozen treat during the warm Summer months. (Recipe courtesy of Adrianna Adarme of the Fresh Tastes blog)

Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries, hullled and halved
  • 4 tablespoons of sugar or to taste
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

Directions

  1. In a food processor, add the strawberries and pulse until pureed. Add two tablespoons of sugar and pulse once more. Give it a taste and adjust the sugar according to your liking. 
  2. In a measuring cup, measure out the heavy cream and whisk in the remaining 2 tablespoons of sugar. 
  3. You have a few options here in terms of popsicle design: 
  4. Option A. You could mix the heavy cream into the strawberry puree, fill up the molds, add the sticks and freeze overnight. 
  5. Option B. Fill up six popsicles molds about 1/4 of the way and transfer to the freezer for 1 hour.  At the 1-hour mark, remove them from the freezer and add about a tablespoon of cream to each mold. Transfer to the freezer for another hour and repeat the process until you've filled up the molds. 
  6. Option C. You can add the puree to the molds about 3/4 of the way and divide the cream between molds. An automatic swirl will happen with the popsicles, resulting in some very attractive pops!
