Roasted Strawberry Ice Pops

Roasted Strawberry Ice Pop // take a megabite

The other day I popped into the zombie grocery store (if you went there you’d totally understand) and bought 2 lbs of strawberries because they were somehow $4? And (real talk) I’ve been the worst at letting fruit go bad lately. Herbs get wrankled and black in my tundra-fridge and I’ve been losing cheese in the back and forgetting about heavy cream. So, I had to get my life together and use up these berries in a respectful way, ya know?

I roasted ALL of the berries with some sugar and blended them up with vanilla, lemon and coconut milk. So these just happen to be vegan and they also happen to taste like pie and look like a lipstick color. They are an easy thing to whip up for casual summer snacking. I’d be wary to freeze these in juice glass though because my leftover business got stuck in there like you wouldn’t believe. I also shattered a glass all over one of these? (What am I saying?) So just rest at ease knowing I have 9 in my freezer despite two casualties and that you’ll love these if you make them!

P.S. My girl Cindy is Ice Pop Queen. Check out her round-up of 10 dreamy ones right HERE.

My fridge is a bit, um, over-packed too. I guess that’s what writing a cookbook does to you. But if I had these in my freezer, I’d be way happier 🙂

Oooo, I love the strawberry, lemon, coconut combination! Will be making these once the temperature gets above 70, so I don’t know maybe come August! P.S. I like anything that tastes like pie 🙂

I seriously regret putting my popsicle molds into storage. Those sound so great especially after having just made roasted strawberry ice cream. Must figure out a way to make these.
