Homemade Strawberry Ice Pops

Today is my kid’s LAST day of school – finally! We’re celebrating with ice cream sundaes today and we can’t wait! Earlier in the week, we had our year-end party at their homeschool co-op and enjoyed freeze pops aplenty! I’m pretty sure each child had at least 3, if not more ice pops. They deserve a good treat after a year of hard work and so do the parents and teachers!

We also got some ice pop molds and so far have enjoyed these homemade Strawberries ‘n’ Cream Ice Pops. The first time I made them I added sugar, but if you’re using homegrown strawberries you probably don’t need any sugar! They are SO sweet and juicy that they really don’t need any extra sugar.

Strawberry season is going strong here at Weaver’s Orchard and we’re so excited about it! We’ve worked hard over the last few years to extend strawberry season as long as possible. Last year we were still picking strawberries into early July! Plus, once our homegrown strawberries are finished, we transition to delicious Quebec strawberries in our market, ensuring a long and fruitful strawberry season in our market!

Picking fruit is a family tradition for many local families. We love seeing generations coming together to pick fruit here! Did you pick fruit here as a child? Chances are you’ll want to bring your children or grandchildren as well to carry on the tradition. At this point we’re picking strawberries and red raspberries and we expect other fruit to ripen very soon!

  • 4 cups of strawberries, hulled and diced
  • 3 tablespoon sugar or sweetener of your choice (may not be necessary with homegrown berries)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp corn starch
  • 1 cup (8oz) heavy whipping cream


  1. Mix the corn starch and whipping cream together until blended (use a blender if needed).
  2. Add the strawberries into a food processor or blender along with the other ingredients.
  3. Pulse until combined.
  4. Pour into the ice pop molds and add the sticks.
  5. If you have any extra, just put it in the fridge and wait until the first batch has frozen, then remove those from the mold and transfer to another container. Repeat step four.
  6. Remove from freezer, serve immediately and enjoy!
