One of my kids’ favourite go-to desserts is popsicles. It could be the middle of February and well below freezing out and they would gladly have a popsicle for dessert.
The problem with store bought popsicles is the amount of added sugar they contain. Sugar is often the second ingredient after water. In fact, one brand I was looking at listed; water, sugar, corn syrup, glucose-fructose, and then dextrose. Yikes! 4 out of the 5 first ingredients are added sugar.
As a treat, fine, but my kids will eat popsicles every day. I created this recipe so I could say “yes” when they ask.
The strawberries have naturally occurring fructose, but since they also have fibre, they won’t spike your blood sugar the same way fruit juice or added sugar will.
I blended the ingredients because one of my kids is resistant to chunks, but you can just chop the strawberries if you prefer. Feel free to use whatever milk you like, I used cashew milk to keep it low carb for those of you counting carbs.
