Strawberry Cream Pops


We are loving Eric being home with us this week, especially Adie who has been spoiled rotten. Her world will be rocked when Eric goes back to work next week and it's just Me and Aden to keep her entertained! I see a lot of pool days, water balloon fights, trips to the splash pad and a ton of popsicles! I am loving our popsicle molds from Crate and Barrel and will definitely need to pick up more for when my family comes up in a couple weeks for Adie's birthday. I cannot wait, I am so excited to see my family and have them meet our sweet little handsome Aden! 

Yesterday we spent the afternoon outside with our toes in the pool and these must have strawberry cream popsicles! Mine totally fell in the pool while I was trying to take pictures of Adie and let's just say it was that kind of day! #failed I am obsessed with making your own popsicles, so easy and makes any afternoon a little more fun! Oh and if you haven't tried the Frozen Lemonade at Chick-fil-A, you are missing out! Cannot wait to try this recipe I found on Pinterest and have it every single day!


We picked our own strawberries from the garden and now Adie will only eat strawberries from the garden ... not store bought! #foodsnob This popsicle is the easiest to make, through it together for any party or sunny afternoon! I loved the creaminess of the strawberry and the crunch from the chocolate was right on point. Not to mention a little cashew crunch is the perfect touch to these summertime must haves. My favorite part is how easy it is to put together, enjoy it and start all over! You can see a few of our favorite summer treats here and start the sunny afternoons off right!


Strawberry Cream Pops

2 1/2 cups chopped strawberries, divided
1 pint vanilla ice cream, softened
1 (11.5oz.) bag white chocolate chips or chocolate bark
2 tablespoons coconut oil
chopped cashews, totally optional

Puree 2 cups of the strawberries. Add the ice cream and blend to combine. Fold in the remaining 1/2 cup chopped strawberries. Pour into popsicle molds. Freeze for several hours or overnight until solid. 
Melt the white chocolate chips and coconut oil together in a 2 cup measuring glass in the microwave in 30 second increments, stirring between each, until the white chocolate is completely melted and smooth.
Line a sheet pan with parchment, remove the frozen strawberry ice cream pops from their molds, and work fast, dip each one in white chocolate and place onto the prepared sheet pan. Sprinkle with chopped cashews or even sprinkles if you'd like. Place in the freezer to firm up for a few minutes. Serve immediately or store in a zip-lock bag in the freezer.
Enjoy by the pool and make summertime memories!



No post is complete without a picture of one of my favorites and this girl nailed it today, from the moment she came and snuggled with me this morning!

  2. These look so delish and easy to make! How awesome to have grown your own strawberries! We have tried in the past but didn't get great results. Now we go strawberry picking at a farm. Sounds like a great way to end the summer. Linking up with you at a little bird told me link party:)
