Strawberry Popsicles are creamy and fruity summer treat, drizzled with chocolate. They are super healthy and easy to make.
This hot time of year, at least here in North America and Europe calls for ice cream. Wouldn’t you agree? Therefore I deiced to make these finger licking Strawberry Popsicles drizzled with chocolate. They are not only flavorful, but also very creamy and satisfying. I also love working with these new Silicone Molds, so I am definitely planning making more popsicles.
How you made popsicles before? It is actually quite easy when you have the right tools. Last time I made them, the molds I was using were plastic instead of silicon, so it was quite difficult. I had trouble getting them out of the molds and I end up damaging them. Since then I didn’t make any; I just made BLACKBERRY ICE CREAM instead, which was very delicious by the way. Nevertheless, I will make ice cream as well, was but now I am excited and ready to tackle more popsicles, lol.
Now I have to ask; what is your favorite flavor? I love all kinds, especially strawberry, but also vanilla with dipped in chocolate with almonds or hazelnuts. I know that will be my daughter’s favorite. And I also would love tropical fruit flavours, such as mango pineapple, kiwi and papaya. I just can wait making them all, so stay tuned!!!
And don’t forget to share your ideas! I wold love to hear all about your experience with homemade popsicles. Thank you for visiting and enjoy the summer!
