Strawberry Ice Pops (Pinterest Challenge #2)


A couple of weeks ago, I shared the first post (Cat Origami Bookmarks) in the Pinterest Challenge I am doing with the lovely Kay from Mummy Who. The idea is really cool, we choose 3 Pinterest pins for each other, then we attempt to recreate each one and blog about our experiences. For our second challenge, Kay has picked me these Strawberry Ice Pops which look amazing and perfect for the summer! To see which pin I gave to Kay, go head over to Mummy Who and check out our second challenge! 

When I knew I was going to make these, I headed over to Amazon to find myself some ice pop moulds. The pack I chose had 6 regular moulds and 6 star shaped moulds. The best bit about these ice pops is there is only five ingredients – the simpler the recipe the better in my opinion. So the day before, I went shopping for skimmed milk, whipped cream, strawberry syrup, white chocolate and rainbow sprinkles.

Step 1: Add milk to measuring jug. The instructions advise 480 ml but I wanted to make room for the cream so I only added about 400 ml.

Step 2: Add cream and mix well. I added about 150 ml of cream – I probably would have added more if the jug allowed it.

Step 3: Add the strawberry syrup and mix again until the milk turns pink.

Step 4: Pour the tasty mixture into moulds.

Make sure you fill the moulds up to the very top and place the lids on firmly.

Step 5: Place the moulds into the freezer for at least 6 hours or overnight.

Step 6: Hope for the best…

Step 7: (24 hours later) Prepare the white chocolate by breaking it up and microwaving for 30 seconds (stir) and a further 30 seconds.

Step 8: Yay, the ice pops turned out okay! To remove the case, run under warm water for about a minute and they slide off easily.

Step 9: Dunk the ice pop into the warm melted white chocolate and sprinkle with rainbows.

Step 10: Repeat for all ice pops. Once they have been dunked and sprinkled, I’ve found they don’t want to go back into their cases. If you wrap them with tin foil and pop back into the freezer they should be fine.

Step 11: Enjoy your strawberry ice pops!

Thank you for the challenge Kay! This was really fun to do and I actually surprised myself here. I’m looking forward to our next one which will be appearing on the blog in a couple of weeks. Stay tuned! Don’t forget to head on over to Mummy Who and see which pin I gave to Kay for the second challenge…

    These strawberry ice pops look yummy. While making these first I would have drank the mixture and them prepared another one to make the ice pops. That is the reason I avoid making them haha! This Pinterest challenge is very interesting. 🙂

    These are so pretty. I wish I had known how to make them when my daughter was little, she would have loved them then. She’s almost 25 now – but maybe she still will! I will have to give them a try. Thanks for bringing beauty into another day for me Bexa!

    These look very yummy and much healthier than shop bought ice creams or lollies too. You’ve reminded me that I used to do something similar with Flora’s Petit Filous if we had any that were going to go out of date. I emptied them into lolly moulds and hey presto, homemade Mini Milks! Fab post, Bexa, I’m off to buy some more Petit Filou this weekend! x

I’m in love with the cuteness factor of this 😍 lol like I love popsicles! I use to make loads of these when I was younger or the ice cube ones, but damn it never looked this cute 😂😭 I love the touch of sprinkles and how step by step your tutorial is! Great job babe 💕

    OOOH! I love this idea! The strawberry ice pops look exciting – especially with the different ingredients. You don’t mess around with the milk and cream. This is so much better than regular ice pops with just the whole strawberry XD. What a great way to stay refreshed! Thanks for sharing ♥
