3 Ingredient Strawberry Banana Popsicles.

Healthy strawberry banana popsicles made with only 3 ingredients. You’ll crave them all summer long.

No added sugars or fake stuff - only 3 delicious ingredients to make these healthy, fruity popsicles!

How was your first official weekend of summer? What did you do? 

While Kevin was at the beach with his friends doing normal summer things like riding jet skis and drinking orange crushes, I was slowly packing all 15,983 fragile food props that I own. (And simultaneously regretting buying every-single-one.)

If that sounds like a nightmare to you… it was.

Yep, we are officially moving! Kevin got a new job in Philadelphia and we found an adorable house. I am thrilled to finally work in a kitchen larger than a small closet and to move back to where I was born and raised. Though I’ll miss you charm city!

Alright, let me present you my new favorite snack. These healthy strawberry banana popsicles are summer on a stick. They’re a snap to make and just what the doctor ordered as the temps rise. Turn off that oven, crank up the AC, and go get yourself an ice pop mold.

Bonus: only 3 ingredients needed to make them!! Music to my ears.

Bonus #2: they’re obnoxiously PINK.

Here is the popsicle mold that I own. Durable, inexpensive, and dish-washer safe. If you don’t want to buy it online, I’ve seen these popsicle molds (or similar brands) at Target, Walmart, William’s Sonoma, and Bed Bath & Beyond.

No added sugars or fake stuff - only 3 delicious ingredients to make these healthy, fruity popsicles!

If you’ve tried my skinny strawberry banana milkshakes, chances are you loved them. These pretty-in-pink popsicles are similar in both fruity taste and creamy texture.

You only need 3 healthy ingredients to get the job done – strawberries, a frozen banana, and juice. My favorite juice to use for these fruity pops is pineapple juice; it pairs wonderfully with the sweet strawberries and creamy bananas to make a tropical tasting pop. Alternatively, you could use freshly squeezed orange juice.

I like to use a frozen banana because it gives the popsicles an unbelievably creamy texture, without the need of high-fat dairy. Simply peel a ripe banana, slice into chunks, and freeze. Blend with 12 large strawberries, a little juice, pour into ice pop molds and freeze.

Yup yup, that’s it.

Because it’s me, I accidentally made these pops on the hottest day of the week. And it was unbelievably hard to stop myself from eating ALL six popsicles before I shot this post.

Clean eating popsicles that kids (and you!) will love. And you can actually feel good about eating them. Uh, all 6 of them. I’m not judging.

3 Ingredient Strawberry Banana Popsicles

Yield: 6 popsicles

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 8 hours, 10 minutes

Print Recipe

Healthy strawberry banana popsicles made with only 3 ingredients. Beat the heat with a skinny treat this summer!

Ingredients:

  • 1 large ripe banana, peeled, cut into chunks, & frozen
  • 12 large strawberries, sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup pineapple juice (or orange juice)

Special Equipment

Directions:

  1. Blend all of the ingredients together on high speed until smooth - about 2 minutes. Scrape down the sides of the blender as needed as you go.
  2. Pour the mixture into popsicle molds. If your popsicle mold has slots for sticks, you can insert them before freezing - if not, freeze for 2 hours, then put a wooden popsicle stick in the middle (that is what I did). Continue to freeze for an additional 6 hours or overnight - overnight is recommended for easy removal.
  3. Run popsicle molds under warm water to easily remove. Eat on a hot day. Enjoy!

Additional Notes:

  1. Taste the mixture before freezing. If you prefer the popsicles to be sweeter, you can add a bit of honey. If your strawberries and banana are ripe, you shouldn't need additional sweetener.

    Congratulations on the house! Moving can be so stressful, but I hope you enjoy the change 🙂 These popsicles look amazing, and I love the idea of using pineapple juice! The other day I bought some popsicles that were *supposedly* pineapple lemon, and they tasted like NOTHING! So mad. So these are just what I need 😀

      Pineapple lemon does sound pretty good though! Maybe you can try a homemade version since you were disappointed Caley!

    Oh my goodness Sally, that’s so exciting about moving!! Especially to a house instead of an apartment. To have space to spread out, not share walls with 3 other neighbors, have a yard for Jude… I’m so happy for you!! 🙂 We’re going to go through a similar process at the end of August, and I’m dreading packing up my kitchen and food blog stuff. It’ll be sad not to be able to use it for a while! And these popsicles… Ohmygosh, I’d definitely eat all 6 in one day. It’s always between 95-110° here during the summer, so popsicles are a necessity to stay cool and sane!

      Thanks Amy! Packing has been an absolute nightmare but it will all be worth it when I have a kitchen that is actually a “room” and not just a hallway, which is sort of what mine is now. It is SO small. Looking forward to that yard for Jude too – you are so sweet. Good luck with your big move this summer! Stay cool.

        I’m so excited for your bigger kitchen Sally! Even though we live in a house, ours is about the size of a hallway too. There isn’t room for a proper pantry, so all of my baking supplies are on a shelf in the dining area. I’m sure you can relate! 😉

    These look divine, Sally! It is rather rare for me to find recipes I can make without having to change something or other for my toddler who is allergic to … well… everything! I can make these for her and I am sure her big brother and sister (and me!) will try them as well! Thanks for sharing yet another yummy recipe. Congratulations to Kevin for the new job, and how exciting you have found a house you like!

      Soooo much stuff. This kitchen (even though it is extremely teeny tiny) will take me over a week to pack. Maybe I’m slow. Haha I just hate packing. Thanks Erin, you have to try these!

    Gonna try this weekend. Thanks for the recipe. You can get nice popsicle molds much more reasonably priced at any “dollar” store as well. Better yet – buy a small bag of popsicle sticks at a craft store and re-use your yogurt cups for the molds.

    Hi Sally,
    I made these popsicles last week. They were super easy to make! I used orange juice since i don’t do pineapple & maybe had too many strawberries (mine weren’t large) so i had to add an extra 1/2 of a banana. Just ate one yesterday & they are fantastic! Will definitely make again. Looking forward to other flavors perhaps…..? Good luck with the packing & the moving!

      Freezing then whipping bananas turns them into a silky smooth vanilla tasting ice-cream of sorts. Fantastic as a base for these popsicles.

    I found this three ingredient strawberry-banana popsicle recipe and thought perfect! I started looking around, I only had frozen strawberries and bananas…no juice. So I improvised and used original soymilk and agave nectar to sweeten it!! It turned out incredible! It’s ultra creamy and sweet, full of flavor! Simple is better.

    • Sallyreplied on February 13th, 2016 at 1:37 pm

      I can’t see why not because the pineapples will let out so much juice when blended. You might need to add a little water to thin the mixture out. Let me know how they turn out.
