There are still a few hot days ahead of us this summer and I am determined to use them up filled with summer activities. One of those activities being, eating way to many of these scrumptious strawberry popsicles. These are extra creamy and delicious. Even my daughter pointed out, they taste like the creamy ones from the store but better and dairy free!
Living in Minnesota, August comes and instead of dreading the hot weather, I start dreading what’s coming up. I love fall weather as much as the next basic girl but here in Minnesota, Fall/Autumn is basically like a Sunday evening. It’s kind of relaxing because it’s technically your day off, but all you can think about is how much you don’t want to go to work the next morning. Winter in Minnesota is like Monday morning at work plus a migraine.
Well these strawberry popsicles honestly help take your mind off the looming winter ahead because they just ooze delicious summer time vibes. The best part about these pops though is that they are dairy free (you wouldn’t know it) which means they won’t hurt any sensitive tummies.
Strawberry Oat Milk
I personally think that oat milk is a great milk to bake and make food with. I don’t drink it straight or anything personally, but I LOVE it in my Chai tea lattes. So good!
We buy the big 6 carton case of organic Oat Milk from Costco, but any oat milk (homemade included) will work great. This recipe is super simple. In a medium sauce pan, combine your oat milk, fresh cut strawberries, sugar (maple syrup works as well), and a splash of vanilla. Bring to a boil for about 20 seconds. You basically just want to get it boiling and then turn the heat off to let it cool. Make sure it doesn’t go too crazy and boil over (guilty over here). Keep stirring continuously to get that sugar to dissolve into the pink milk. Those fresh strawberry juices will seep into the oat milk too giving it that dusty rose color.
Let the pink strawberry milk cool down completely before filling your popsicle molds and freezing. Feel free to add a few fresh strawberry slices to the molds with the milk. This addition of some fresh, un-boiled, strawberry slices just gives these popsicles that pop of color and a nice bite of strong strawberry flavor! Freeze for at least 6 hours or overnight. Once you are ready to eat them, just follow your popsicle mold instructions on how to get them out and enjoy your new favorite summer treat!
