I have been made several variations of this recipe, but this one is my favourite!
Frozen Strawberry Pops Recipe
- ½ tub (4oz) strawberry-flavor cream cheese (I use 1/3 less fat version)
- 2 tbs milk (I use 2% (semi-skimmed))
- 6 ripe strawberries, hulled and halved
- Sugar, to taste (optional)
- Add the cream cheese and milk to a food processor, and whizz it until smooth.
- Add the strawberries and pulse the mixture once or twice until they are roughly chopped.
- Taste and stir in sugar if necessary – this depends on the sweetness of your strawberries but usually I find I don’t need to add any.
- Spoon the mixture into pop molds.
- Freeze until set – usually about two hours.
The mini pop molds I used were these fabulous ones from Zoku. The molds are easy to fill and super easy to release – you just push the silicone bowl up through the mold base and out comes the pop. They are perfect for making little bite sized treats for toddlers, and the molds are really easy to clean, too! The recipe above makes 9 mini pops, but it would be easy to double the quantities if you were using larger molds.

My son hadn’t previously been convinced by the whole food-on-a-stick concept, so I was really pleased that he liked them – they definitely made it onto his “approved food” list. And he was delighted to find some little pieces of strawberry in his ice cream. Win-win!
