Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles

This morning I'm going to let my friend Meghan take it away with her delicious recipe for homemade strawberry Popsicles -- yum! I think I'm going to cross them off my summer bucket list shortly. Enjoy, and thanks, Meghan! -- Natty

Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles

There’s no summer dessert more ubiquitous than strawberry shortcake. Okay, maybe Popsicles and ice cream are also pretty quintessential summer treats. So here’s an idea -- let’s mash strawberry shortcake, ice cream and Popsicle into one dessert and call it the best summer ever.  These Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles are just that and they couldn’t be easier!

Blend together a little cream and sugar and you’ll have something akin to ice cream base, but not quite whipped cream. Add a ton of fresh strawberries, blend some more, and you have an amazing mix. Pour into Popsicle molds of any kind*, freeze, and the result will be a sweet, creamy strawberry treat. They can be devoured as is, but bonus points if you take a few extra moments to roll the frozen pops in some vanilla cookie crumbs.

This delicious summer treat should be on everyone’s summer bucket list -- they almost remind me of the classic Good Humor Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles that you could buy from the ice cream truck every summer – except tastier.

Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles
Makes 10 (3 ounces) popsicles

2 cups heavy cream
1 cup sugar
3 cups sliced strawberries, about 1 pint whole strawberries
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 cup vanilla wafer cookies, crushed (optional)

Blend together the heavy cream and sugar in a blender or food processor. Remove 1 cup of the cream sugar mixture from the blender and set aside. Add the strawberries to the blender and process until smooth. Pour the strawberry mixture into popsicle molds of your choice*, filling each about ¾ of the way full. Top each mold with a small amount of the plain cream mixture and freeze the popsicles until solid, about 4 hours.

Remove the popsicles from their molds and roll in the vanilla wafer crumbs just before serving.

*Im a fan of these popsicle molds for their classic style
