Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles
The recipe for these Strawberry Shortcake Popsicles came to me when I was inspired by Lucie Beck to participate in her Instagram challenge #onlyoneicecream and when I was craving an all-encompassing dessert: one that was both fruity and creamy. One that had layers of flavours.
I have always been a huge fan of ice creams that have many different textures, chunks of cake or nut or jams swirled in. However, I had not really had this type of experience with popsicles.
So I went on a mission: transforming a quintessential summer dessert into a popsicle.
After a bit of research, strawberry shortcake just felt like the right choice. It did not contain too many components while also being packed with flavours.
I knew I needed:
- Something that would act as a cream,
- The strawberry element,
- And of course the cake element.
My solution to this pursuit was:
- Using rich coconut cream to replace the whipped cream element,
- Juicy roasted strawberries instead of the traditional fresh strawberries.
- And a 1 minute microwave vanilla cake for the shortcake.
I ended up with rich, creamy and refreshing popsicles to satisfy all my berry desires!
Alright you guys, on that note, if strawberry shortcakes are your jam, you must give this recipe a try!
I do realize it takes a couple of steps to get this recipe ready, but it is totally worth it in my opinion!
