  • Diet: Gluten Free


These pretty orange strawberry popsicles are naturally sweetened & perfect for summer! (vegan & paleo)


  • 2 cups strawberries
  • 12 Tbsp. pure maple syrup, honey, or agave (as needed)
  • 2 cups orange juice (pick great-quality!)
  • Popsicle Mold
  • Popsicle Sticks


  1. Combine. In a blender, puree strawberries until smooth. Taste the mixture and sweeten with 1-2 Tbsp. syrup, honey, or agave, if needed
  2. Divide the strawberry mixture between your popsicle molds (mine holds 10 pops). Tap the popsicle mold on the counter a few times to remove any air bubbles and to help the puree settle.
  3. Create A Gradient. Add about 1″ orange juice on top of the strawberry puree in each popsicle mold. Use a straw, drink stirrer or popsicle stick to gently swirl the orange juice into the top of the strawberry mixture. (This will help you create a gradient of color) Pour the rest of the orange juice into the popsicle molds.
  4. Freeze. Cover popsicle mold with a lid or foil and insert popsicle sticks. Freeze popsicles 3-4 hours or until completely solid.
  5. To remove pops from the mold, run the outside of the mold under cold water for a few seconds, then jiggle the sticks side to side to loosen the pops. (Run the mold under water again if they’re still not loosening.)
  6. Store frozen popsicles in a ziptop bag in the freezer up to 2 weeks. 


*Don’t have a popsicle mold with a lid? You’ll need to set a timer to insert the sticks later. Wait 30-45 minutes then check if the pops are frozen enough to hold the sticks upright. If they’re not quite ready yet, check again in 20-30 minutes. Alternatively, you can cover the mold with plastic wrap or press and seal wrap and insert the sticks through the wrap. (The wrap will help hold sticks upright)
