These healthy strawberry banana popsicles are summer on a stick. They’re a snap to make and just what the doctor ordered as the temperatures rise. You only need 3 healthful ingredients – strawberries, a frozen banana, and juice. Turn off that oven, crank up the AC, and let’s get popping.

  • Ease: Blend, pour, and freeze. That’s all we’re doing!
  • Time: 10 minutes to prep and 8 hours to freeze.

Choosing the Right Ingredients

  1. Frozen banana. I like to use a frozen banana because when you blend it up, it creates an ice cream-like base. (More than a regular, unfrozen banana would.) Simply peel a ripe banana, slice into chunks, and freeze. 
  2. Juice. My favorite juice for these pops is pineapple juice because it pairs wonderfully with the sweet strawberries and creamy banana. 
  3. Sweeten it up. Taste the mixture before freezing. If you prefer the popsicles to be sweeter, you can add a bit of honey. I usually don’t– if your strawberries and banana are ripe, the pops will be sweet.

What Popsicle Mold Do I Use?

Here’s the popsicle mold that I own. It’s durable, inexpensive, and dishwasher safe. If you don’t want to buy it online, I’ve seen these popsicle molds (and similar brands) at Target, Walmart, major grocery stores, and Bed Bath & Beyond. Any popsicle mold like that will work for this recipe.

3 Ingredient Strawberry Banana Popsicles

  • Author: Sally
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 0 minutes
  • Total Time: 8 hours, 10 minutes
  • Yield: 6 popsicles
  • Category: Frozen Desserts
  • Cuisine: American

Description

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)

Instructions

  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!

Notes

  1. Sweetener: 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.

  1. Made these on Sunday and we had them last night for dessert. My daughters loved them! And so did the grown ups! This is a keeper for sure.

  2. I made these for my children last week pretty much straight after reading your post. We didn’t have pineapple juice at home so we went for orange juice, and these easy / quick treats were a hit with them all! Mel

  3. Maureen, frozen thawed drained strawberries will work here!

  4. Just made them! theyre so simple and delicious i wanted to eat the whole thing before they were even frozen hahaha. thank you!

  5. Could you use apple juice or almond milk instead???

    1. either work!

  6. Why do you need to pre freeze the bananas?

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

  7. Rebecca Scott says:

    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.

  8. Hi Sally, i am gonna try these but wanted to know if i could use a couple fresh pineapple slices instead of the juice? would that b ok?

    and thanks for the recipes … been back here a few times using recipes that are healthy and yummy and family pleasing 🙂 

    1. 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.

  9. This recipe is a keeper! Our strawberries in April are not quite ripe and sweet yet, so I added some honey to the listed ingredients. We all loved it; thank you!

  10. Is the juice required?

    1. To thin out the very thick mixture, yes.

  11. I also added some frozen peaches to this recipe. Kids loved them, me too!

  12. I had a bunch of frozen raspberries in my freezer from last year so I used your recipe and it turned out great!!

  13. And I just totaled it up for one large banana, 12 large strawberries and a half a cup of pineapple juice. Comes up 254 cal divided by six Popsicles equals 42 cal each! Wow that is wonderful

  14. I was wondering can you fresh peaches and freeze them in place of the bananas? I love strawberries and peaches. I was wondering can you use apple juice in place of the orange juice?

    1. Hi Donna, I think both substitutions would be great!

  15. Made these yesterday and they’re super tasty and refreshing! Kind of like a frozen smoothie. I’ll be making them again and I’m already thinking about other fruits to try in place of the strawberries!

  16. My 3 yr old saw the molds today and begged to make icies. We just whipped up a batch of these delicious treats. We can barely wait until they’re ready to eat. This is our second year using this recipe and we love it!

  17. Would frozen strawberries work ok? Thank you!

    1. Hi Cassie! Frozen thawed & drained strawberries will work here!

  18. This looks so delicious, but my boyfriend cannot have citrus. What do you suggest in place of the pineapple juice? Thanks

    1. Hi Glenda, You can use any other juice you would like, or even try using yogurt like I do in my blueberry popsicles!

  19. I don’t currently have pineapple or apple juice, so I was wondering if I could use lemonade to try something new? Maybe like a fruity flavor for the popsicles?

    1. Lexi @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      You can certainly give it a try, Sunny! Let us know how it goes.

  20. Sharon Schroeter says:

    My grandkids will love these! You mentioned using frozen, thawed, drained strawberries. What if you didn’t drain them, could the juice count as the pineapple juice?
    Thank you & keep up the good work

    1. Lexi @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      Hi Sharon! You can try that, but the mixture will be very thick so you will likely still want a bit of pineapple or apple juice to help thin it out a bit. Hope your grandkids enjoy the popsicles!

      1. Sharon Schroeter says:

        Thanks Lexi for your reply. I just hated to throw our the strawberry juice, but will certain keep the pineapple juice in mind if they are too thick 😉

  21. Torres Cindy says:

    Per popsicle, what is the total carbs?

    1. Trina @ Sally's Baking Addiction says:

      We don’t usually include nutrition information as it can vary between different brands of the same ingredients. Plus, many recipes have ingredient substitutions or optional ingredients listed. However, there are many handy online calculators where you can plug in and customize your exact ingredients/brands. Readers have found this one especially helpful: https://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-calculator.asp

  22. Laurie L Santes says:

    I was so excited to try it, especially after waiting 8 hours, but they just tasted like ice.
