Strawberry Shortcake Ice Pops

June 26, 2015 by Jenny Melrose

When I think of summer my mind automatically goes to strawberry shortcake for some reason.  I think it’s largely due to the fact that the grocery stores now keep all the ingredients for an easy strawberry shortcake right by the strawberries.  Fortunately, it is so hot here in NC that it caused me to think outside of the box to create a refreshing dessert.  These strawberry shortcake ice pops are the absolute perfect refreshing treat of the summer.

We started out creating a strawberry shortcake dip, which I modified based on this recipe.  It was delicious and we dipped fresh fruit in our dip, but I found that the dip did not last long outside because it was just so hot out.  My girls definitely liked the dip, but they kept asking for ice pops, which in my house are difficult to keep in stock because we literally go through at least four a day and that’s only with two little girls.  When the cousins are here, it’s practically an entire box.

Since I also made my fruit salsa for the adults to enjoy, I didn’t feel guilty turning the strawberry shortcake dip into ice pops.  We love our Zoku Pop Molds, but those were already in use {Big surprise!}.  Did you know that Zoku actually makes a Frozen Pop Maker Machine where you can have your popsicles in frozen and ready to eat in less than 7 minutes?!  Tell me that’s not the greatest invention for this Summer heat wave that we’re having.  Mine is in the mail since we had a slight melt down because we needed to wait at least 6 hours for these to strawberry shortcake ice pops to freeze.  I was later told that they were well worth the wait by my sister in law.
