Strawberry Daiquiri Popsicles

First things first.

For those who’ve missed my status update on facebook or my post on Twitter… I have a little something to share!

For those who already know… sorry but you’ll have to hear it again…

It’s too exciting of news to not share! 🙂

The other day I received a comment from someone saying they were visiting from Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. I was like “wha-what?” Then my friend Tracy pulled up her email on her phone and says “yep there you are!” I about fell over! No lie!


I’ve been a fan of Jamie Oliver since he was on late at night on Food Network! I love how he says basil like… baaasil! So to find out Simply Scratch was Blog of the Month on his Food Revolution site is a huge honor and very exciting!

Then in the email they sent me was this badge {above} that I get to proudly sport on Simply Scratch!

Totally cool!!

Soooo let’s celebrate shall we?

With popsicles!

Strawberry Daiquiri Popsicles!!

Let’s tap into our childhood roots… c’mon it’s fun!

For me the end of the school year is bittersweet. On one hand while the kids are in school I have the day to myself. To sit and enjoy the peace and quiet without bickering, whining and monster high doll stealing. Then on the other hand I don’t have to pack school lunches, we pack a picnic and go to the beach… and then there is the perk of getting to sleep in on my days off!! You see what I mean?

So with summer almost officially here and only two and a half more school days until summer vacation {woot woot!} I’ve had popsicles on the brain. I’m not at all a Flavor Ice fan, and I had a serious hankering for a cold frozen treat. So I looked around my fridge and pantry and found all the ingredients to make these popsicles. This summer try to have you kids help you make these! It’s a recipe that kids will definitely enjoy making as much as they like eating them!!


Did you know you can make your own popsicles with four ingredients… or less!? It’s wicked easy too!


You will need some molds… this recipe makes 3 cups, so you may have some leftover.


My molds came from Tupperware. I like that they have reusable stick that won’t give me a splinter. 🙂 But if you don’t have molds, just use a small paper cup with a popsicle stick… works just the same!


I normally don’t preach here on Simply Scratch… but please, please PAH-lease try to buy organic farmed strawberries… there is a difference in taste… I promise!


Start off by pulling the leaves away from the strawberry… like so.


Then run your knife along outer edge to remove the leaves, discard and repeat.


Slice the larger strawberries in halve and toss them into a food processor.


You could totally use a blender or a vita-mix… as long as it has a motor and a sharp blade then your good to go!


Squeeze the juice of a whole lime until you get very last drop!


Pour that in with the strawberries.


I found this on the shelf while grocery shopping… umm it’s pretty dang delicious. But if you can’t find it then just vanilla would totally work!


Add in the 6 ounces of yogurt.


Drizzle in a teaspoon or so of honey.


Then let her rip! You could always just pulse it if you want a chunkier strawberry pieces in your popsicle.


I found it easier to pour the strawberry puree into a large measuring cup instead of trying to pour from my spoutless food processor… I was trying to avoid a mess.


But as you can see I was still messy…


Really messy…


I only have 6 popsicle molds… so I had about a cup left over.


So right after I popped the popsicles into the fridge…


…and as I waited for the popsicles to freeze I poured myself a glass… and pretended it was a daiquiri! Ooooh yeah!


It’s a guilt free treat I didn’t mind giving to my girls as an after-school-snack.


I’m thinkin’ about how I snuck fruits into their bodies and they’re thinkin’ I’m awesome…

You see it’s a total win-win situation!

    Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering
    if you knew where I could locate a captcha plugin for my comment form?
    I’m using the same blog platform as yours and I’m having trouble finding one?
    Thanks a lot!

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the book in it or something. I think that you
    can do with some pics to drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.

    A fantastic read. I’ll certainly be back.
