Strawberry Mint Popsicles

fruit popsicle recipes

Picture this…
It’s late evening and the summer heat has set in. You hear that familiar tinkling tune … the ice cream man is headed your way. And suddenly you’re giddy like a five year old, but instead of running to the driveway with three dollars in your hand, that whimsical music just reminded you that you made popsicles yesterday… and they are ready to enjoy now!

That could be you tomorrow!
And the best part is, you’re gonna love these popsicles much more than any popsicle you could get from the ice cream man! These strawberry mint popsicles are everything you could want from a popsicle: ice cold, refreshing (thank you mint!), and oh-so-good for you because, guess what? They’re made from a green smoothie!

  • 4 medjool dates (pitted and chopped)

    What could be substituted in place of dates?

  2. Ashlee says:

    It finally got hot enough to pull out my popsicle molds; can’t wait to try these!

  3. Jessica says:

    I love these so much and when I make them, I always make extras for my pup so we can both enjoy them on hot summer days!

  4. Kim says:

    Strawberries and mint. The perfect soothing combination! Perfect for summer days.

  5. Amanda says:

    These just scream summer and they’re so refreshing!!

  6. Olivia says:

    Do the dates help to sweeten, or help them become more popsicle-like? I don’t have any but thought maybe I’d use a different natural sweetener…

  7. Dani Mitchell says:

    Homemade popsicles are so good to have on hand. I like tis recipe because it’s more of a grown up popsicle with the mint— and I appreciate that. I bet they would taste good with basil too!

    chocolate mint works awesome

  9. Autumn says:

    These are amazing! We made them a couple of times over the summer with fresh local strawberries and mint from the garden! My 4 year old loves them and I never had to stop him from having a ‘special’ treat!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Autumn,

      Yum! Nothing beats using fresh ingredients from your garden! And we love hearing that our Strawberry Mint Popsicles made the perfect healthy sweet treat for your family!

  10. Morgane says:

    Hi! This sounds great, I can’t wait to try it! Just one quick question: is it ok to use thawed frozen strawberries even if we’re going to re-freeze them for the popsicle? I thought we weren’t supposed to re-freeze food without cooking it first but I might have gotten that completely wrong! Thanks!

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Morgane,

      We don’t see a problem with that!

      Cheers 🙂

    • Donna says:

      Morgane, I realize it’s been along time since this post. I just wanted to say you heard correctly about re-freezing food without cooking it first, but that’s only for meats. Everything else is safe. Thanks.

  11. Jane says:

    I love this. Thank you for sharing this recipe. It’s something I can eat to cool off on a hot day.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Jane,

      Thanks for reaching out, we’re so happy to hear your excitement for this recipe! Check back in after you make your popsicles, we’d love to hear your thoughts!


  12. Kathleen says:

    Sounds great, we have some chocolate mint in the garden, and tons of strawberry plants. This might become our new favourite dessert.

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Kathleen,

      We love growing our own fruits + herbs! We hope you enjoy making these popsicles.

    Oooh. I want one

  14. Sterling says:

    I’m freezing mine right now. I didn’t strictly measure everything but it tasted pretty good before going into the freezer! I think next time though I might experiment with muddling the mint in warm water before adding it to get a little bit of extra mint kick! 🙂

  15. Renee says:

    We are going to make this today. But without the mint because we just planted the mint this morning. 😉

    • SGS Rawkstar says:

      Hi Renee,

      Enjoy your popsicles! We’d love to hear how they turn out, or even better…we’d love to see pictures! 🙂

    Shut the front door! This sounds amazing, I can’t wait to try it!
