I love popsicles and I cannot lie. LoL!!! It’s not a secret I guess. Each summer, I share a few recipes. These Strawberry Popsicles are pretty straightforward too. This recipe is gluten free and vegan. It is also Paleo. Hence, folks who are on a diet can enjoy these too.
Strawberry Popsicles – Gluten free, Vegan, Paleo is a new experiment which rocked! Last year I had shared the recipe for my Volcano Pops, for which I got amazing feedback too! And have you guys seen my Mango and Kiwi Popsicles, pretty and so flavorsome! There are so many kinds of fruit based popsicles I’m yet to try and share here, the possibilities are endless.:)
I prefer using everyday, easily available ingredients for making pops. These Strawberry Popsicles – Gluten free, Vegan, Paleo are very easy to put together. Ideal for kids too as these do not contains added colors or preservatives. Since they are full health, it’s safe to say that you can have them for breakfast when it gets way too hot! No one’s judging!
So coming to what goes into it, well anything goes actually. I love strawberries and they are in abundance around me so I’ve used those. Use any fruit juice or pulp, it will work. To my surprise, strawberries are really sweet this year, hardly any tang or tartness. As always I’ve been snacking on them by the pound! So, when I wanted to male these pops, I didn’t need much sugar. In fact, I’ve used natural sweeteners in a very small quantity to balance the little tang from the lemon juice. For the final element of freshness in every lick, I added something from my kitchen garden!!
The overall flavor blew us away! So little to do and you’ll be all set for these icy cool treats for the next few days. Sounds good??!
