Chocolate Strawberry Homemade Popsicles
Yes, there is still snow on the ground out there but spring is just around the corner. Are you aware what that means? That summer is close and we can start looking forward to BBQs, hot days and treats like these homemade popsicles.
Making homemade popsicles is really easy, all you need are your ingredients (listed below) and a popsicle mold (I use this Zoku Fish Mold – perfect size for toddlers).
One of my favorite ways to make homemade popsicles is by using Almond Breeze’s Unsweetened Almond Milks (my favorite is vanilla). I choose Almond Breeze because of the creamy goodness it brings to the ice pops and the facts that it (not only) has more calcium than cow’s milk but less sugar as well.
I wanted to make homemade popsicles to show you that Almond Breeze Almond Milk isn’t just for smoothies, cereal, and oatmeal. Actually, I use Almond Breeze in place of milk all the time in my recipes (like this recipe for a Healthier Version of Mac and Cheese).
Trust me, you won’t miss the milk.
As you may have been made aware from previous posts, I am cutting back on my sugar intake. So Almond Breeze’s Unsweetened Almond Milks are perfect for me and my health goals.
Chocolate Strawberry Homemade Popsicles:
- 1 cup Almond Breeze Unsweetened Almond Milk
- 1 tbsp cocoa powder
- 1 tbsp honey
- 2 cups strawberries
Combine ingredients in your blender and puree. Pour into popsicle molds and freeze until solid (about 4-5 hours).
A toddler approved snack that has no added refined sugar, is full of fiber and a source of calcium.
Do these ever look yummy! Love the simplicity!
These look like a great treat for the kids, they would love these! Awesome way to cut sugar.
I did have to add the honey because the cocoa I use is quite bitter, and I knew my son wouldn’t eat it without but at least it’s natural.
They sound really good, will have to try them out this summer when I get our popsicle mold out. Love that fish mold, it is so cute!
wow these looks and sound delish thanks for sharing the recipe … your mold is so cute , never seen anything like it before 🙂
Fast and simple I love it
Another great way to use Almond Breeze! I’ll have to try this for my boys! Thanks Randa!
What a fun idea! Where did you get the popsicle maker? This is a brilliant idea for Almond Breeze!
Hey Tammy! The mold is a Zoku, you can get it at Amazon here: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00I3JWXZA/ref=as_li_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00I3JWXZA&linkCode=as2&tag=bewitchinkitchen-20&linkId=3XEIVFMVQXDXPGNE
I am going to make these this weekend for Bella, her top front tooth is starting to cut (the gum is swelling, cheeks bright red and hot … it’s coming) so these seem like a great soothing snack for her to ease her pain and still healthy!
Homemade popsicles were my saving grace when Carter was teething. Pinepplae pureed is awesome.
These look so cute! I can’t wait to try this recipe in the summer!
I’m making this tonight!!! Pronto! I love the little faces at the top of yours. Thanks for the recipe. Never thought of adding almond milk. Thanks!

Great recipe, anything to get rid of sugar

Thanks for the great recipe and an easy one too, I love your popsicle molds so cute, I have never seen those before. I’m going to make these for when my granddaughter comes over but for myself as well, I like to have a nice cold treat in the summer and these are a lot healthier than what you buy in the stores!!
I’ve never tried almond milk, but after seeing your recipe I am going to have to pick some up. I love that the popsicles have just a few ingredients. They look like the perfect summer treat!
Thanks Whitney! Almond milk is a staple in our home, I drink it almost daily in my smoothies. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
These look great! I recently bought this fish pop mold and am so in love with it! I promptly threw my old ones out that had cracked in the freezer as this one worked so well! My daughter who is 7 loves it of course. Will pick up the ingredients to make these on the way home.
Isn’t it cute? I love this fish pop mold too. I want to pick out a few more varieties.
