{Dairy-Free} Strawberries & Cream Popsicles

May 18, 2015


These {Dairy-Free} Strawberries & Cream Popsicles were featured on Love To Be In The Kitchen, where I guest posted for Becky (who just had the most adorable baby girl!) last month.  If you are dairy free, this is a great treat for the warm weather headed our way!

{Dairy-Free} Strawberries & Cream Popsicles are the perfect treat for all this warm Spring weather we’ve been having (at least here in Utah)!  With only 4 simple ingredients, you can be enjoying these in no time.  Delicious and wholesome, this is a treat you can feel good about giving your kids!

  {Dairy-Free} Strawberries & Cream Popsicles

Ingredients:

  • 1 can (14 oz) coconut cream*
  • 1/3 cup sugar (more or less to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 lbs fresh strawberries 
  • Additional sugar to taste, if strawberries are tart

Directions:

  1. Refrigerate coconut cream until well chilled (I did it overnight).  
  2. Chill mixing bowl and beaters for 5-10 minutes in the freezer prior to whipping cream.
  3. Place cold coconut cream in a mixing bowl.  Beat for 3-5 minutes.  Add in vanilla and sugar and whip to incorporate. 
  4. Wash and hull strawberries, and puree in a blender.  Taste for sweetness and add sugar if necessary.  Keep in mind that the cream will add some sweetness, but some strawberries are tart and may need a little extra sweetener.
  5. Fold the cream into the strawberry mixture, and pour into popsicle molds.  Freeze until hardened and enjoy!


Notes about Coconut Cream:

    * Coconut cream can be found in stores like Trader Joe’s, Asian markets, the Asian section of some grocery stores, or the mixers (like margaritas) section of some grocery stores.

    * If you can’t find coconut cream, use full-fat coconut milk (canned).  Look for milk withOUT guar gum as an ingredient.  This is added to emulsify the cream…which means the cream won’t separate from the liquid, even when chilled.  Cream content will vary from brand to brand.

    *Regular cream can be substituted, use about 1 1/2 cups.
