Strawberry Smoothie Pops

6

I love these years – when Tony and I go from “Where’s spring?” to “Wow, this is an early and hot summer!” in a matter of days. Though we are still a week or so off from the beloved vacation season, I declare that it is definitely time for smoothie pops! What is a smoothie pop? In this case, it is a cool treat that is infused with fresh fruit, fruit juice, and dairy-free yogurt. Sweet, but packed only with wholesome ingredients. Perfect for the almost 90ºF temps we are expecting today. I’m planning for some swimming and one or two of these babies before I hit the work week.

Dairy-Free Strawberry Smoothie Pops - a simple healthier treat for hot summer days! Naturally vegan & gluten-free, too.This strawberry smoothie pop recipe with photos was originally shared by Tree Top, though I have adapted it slightly for us dairy-free frozen treat lovers!

Special Diet Notes: Strawberry Smoothie Pops

By ingredients, this recipe is dairy-free / non-dairy, egg-free, gluten-free, grain-free, optionally nut-free, peanut-free, optionally soy-free, vegan / plant-based, vegetarian, and optionally top food allergy-friendly. To keep these smoothie pops allergy-friendly, be sure to choose your dairy-free yogurt wisely. I typically choose So Delicious Unsweetened Vanilla Dairy-Free Coconut Milk Yogurt (if your fruit is ripe, you don’t need the added sweetener), which is reportedly made with allergen-safe practices.

Need Banana-Free? I get this request quite a bit! Mangoes are amazing with strawberries and provide similar body to smoothies and consequently, smoothie pops! Simply substitute about 1 cup frozen mango chunks for the banana. In the summer, another good option is frozen peach slices.
