I prefer making my own popsicles over buying them because when I do that, there isn’t any added preservatives, flavorings (unless I put them there) or sugar. My kiddo’s don’t need all that junk and they are perfectly happy with blended fruit or juice.

Plus they are much cheaper when you make them, opposed to buying a better for you popsicle out of the box.

Tips for Making Strawberry Lemon Yogurt Popsicles

  • Pick the ripest strawberries: For the best flavor, use sweet and juicy strawberries. Avoid any that are mushy or underripe.
  • Freeze prep for even distribution: If you want whole chunks of strawberries throughout your popsicles, consider partially freezing them before blending. This will help them hold their shape better.
  • Sweetness control: Taste the mixture before pouring it into molds. You can adjust the sweetness by adding some honey or another natural sweetener if your strawberries aren’t very ripe.
  • Creamy or Chunky? The way you blend the strawberries determines the texture. A quick pulse will leave chunks of fruit, while a longer blend will create a smoother consistency. Choose whichever you prefer!
  • Layer it up! For a fun presentation, try pouring the yogurt mixture in layers with another fruit puree like mango or blueberry.
  • Garnish for Fancy Pops: Before freezing, dip the top of the popsicle molds in melted chocolate or chopped nuts for an extra burst of flavor and a pretty look.
  • Easy Popsicle Removal: Run the popsicle mold under warm water for a few seconds to loosen the pops before pulling them out.

By following these tips, you can make perfect strawberry lemon yogurt popsicles every time!

Storing Tips for Popsicles

Here are some key storage tips to keep your homemade popsicles fresh and delicious for as long as possible:

General Strategies:

  • Freeze Quickly: The faster your popsicles freeze, the smaller the ice crystals will be, resulting in a smoother texture. Aim to pre-chill your popsicle molds if possible and freeze them on a level surface.
  • Airtight is Key: Exposure to air can cause freezer burn, which dries out popsicles and gives them an unpleasant icy taste. Store your popsicles in an airtight container or freezer bag.
  • Separate is Best: If you’re storing multiple popsicles together, consider wrapping them individually in plastic wrap or parchment paper to prevent them from sticking together or absorbing unwanted flavors.

Choosing a Container:

  • Airtight Container: A sturdy, reusable container with a tight-fitting lid is ideal. Look for containers specifically designed for freezer storage.
  • Freezer Bags: Zip-top freezer bags are a space-saving option. Remove as much air as possible before sealing to prevent freezer burn.

Long-Term Storage:

  • Freezing Timeframe: Homemade popsicles will generally maintain their best quality for up to 6 months when stored properly.
  • Label It!: Mark the container with the date you made the popsicles. This will help you keep track of how long they’ve been frozen and ensure you enjoy them at their peak freshness.

Additional Tips:

  • Store away from strong-smelling foods: Popsicles can absorb odors from other items in your freezer.
  • Thaw before serving: Let popsicles sit at room temperature for a few minutes before enjoying them to avoid brain freeze!

By following these storage tips, you can enjoy your homemade popsicles for weeks to come!
