Cool off on a hot summer day with these homemade popsicles! These Strawberry Banana Popsicles are loaded with flavor from frozen strawberries and banana plus, naturally sweetened with honey for a healthy snack for kids and adults. Put a batch in the freezer today for those hot summer afternoons!
We’ve been loving snacking on our favorite Mixed Berry Popsicles all summer long, but wanted to switch it up so we created these creamy Strawberry Banana Popsicles!
They are so creamy because we used Greek yogurt, which has a higher fat content than regular milk. This reduces the ice in the popsicles when you freeze them.
There’s nothing like a hot summer day, sitting around the pool and enjoying these homemade popsicles loaded with strawberry and banana!
The kids love this healthy snack or dessert and request them over and over again.

Helpful Supplies when Making Homemade Popsicles!
How to Make Homemade Popsicles
Homemade popsicles are so easy to make, packed with flavor and protein. I love that you can switch up the flavors whenever you want!
Blend – Thaw strawberries and keep the juice. Put thawed strawberries in juice in blender plus the banana, Greek yogurt, honey and cornstarch. Blend on high until smooth.
Freeze – Pour strawberry banana mixture into popsicles molds, place over on top and place popsicle sticks into the mixture. Place in freezer for at least 4 hours.
Serve – When it’s time to serve, you can run the molds under warm water for a few seconds or allow them to sit on the counter to warm slightly.
How long can I keep homemade popsicles in freezer?
They are best enjoyed within two weeks but they will keep up to 6 months if they are stored at 0 degrees Fahrenheit. It’s best to store them in the back of a freezer as the temperature if more consistent in the back.
Do I need to use frozen fruit in homemade popsicles?
Frozen fruit works best in homemade popsicles. This is because it gives the best blending and consistency.
If you want to use fresh fruit blend it first, then add honey to the fruit and blend again.
