Many of my childhood memories of summer on the farm include the special treat of a popsicle. These yummy frozen treats were the perfect way to cool off on those hot summer days. We made all kinds of concoctions to freeze on a stick. A little blueberry, some strawberries, a few raspberries, and even some rhubarb. You name it, we tried it.
Our Strawberry Pudding Pops recipe can be frozen in ice cube trays, popsicle molds or these handy Zipzicle bags for a refreshing kid-friendly treat any time of the year, or use the pudding as an easy, but fancy dessert.
STRAWBERRY PUDDING POPS
5 cups washed, hulled and quartered strawberries
1/2 cup honey
1 cup water, divided
1-1/2 tablespoons gelatin
1 cup coconut milk
Place strawberries, honey and 1/2 cup water in a saucepan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 to 15 minutes. While this is cooking, sprinkle gelatin into remaining 1/2 cup water. Stir and let sit. Once strawberries are soft, puree with an immersion blender. Stir in gelatin mixture until gelatin is dissolved. Add coconut milk. Cool. Pour pudding into ice cube trays, popsicle molds or zipzicle bags and freeze for a refreshing kid-friendly treat.
