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! I am thrilled to finally work in a kitchen larger than a small closet.

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.

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

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.
  2. Here is the popsicle mold I use!

  1. You’re moving, congrats! Where in Philadelphia are you guys headed? I hope you have some book signings around this area. 🙂

    1. Thanks Lesley! We’ll be about 10 minutes from the city. And I certainly will have some book signings in the area – probably after our wedding in September.

  2. Oh, these look heavenly, especially with summer here, perfect for those hot summer days. And I love the strawberry and banana smoothie, I love those to combos. I can hardly wait to try these!
    Congrats on moving! I hope you get settled quickly and have fun decorating your new home!

    1. Thanks MJ! Decorating the home is the 1 part I actually AM looking forward to! Though I’m having a hard time stopping myself from going crazy at the store!

  3. So does this mean that technically I could have a popsicle for breakfast since it’s really just a frozen smoothie….
    Even though we are in winter’s grip here I think I might have to invest in a popsicle mold and give these delights a try.
    Good luck with packing Sally. We aren’t moving until next year, but I think I might start now…

  4. Congrats on your big move, Sally! That is awesome and so happy for you that you’ll be closer to your family and that Kevin found a job and that you’re going to be in a house, not an apt. That is all such great news!

    And these popsicles look great. EVERY TIME I make popsicles, it’s on the hottest day of the year and they melt before I can even really shoot them and I end up not using the post. Love how in-tact and totally not melted these stayed! Pinned

    1. Thanks for the congrats, Averie. 🙂 You know all too well that shooting popsicles is as hard as (actually, harder!!) than shooting melting chocolate candy and orange cheese!

  5. Congratulations on your move! Moving is always really exciting and full of new experiences. I love all the ingredients in this recipe (of COURSE I do, it’s FRUIT) but I don’t have Popsicle molds so I look forward to trying to make these in a large ice cube tray!

  6. Oh my goodness! Congratulations on the move and everything!!!! What an exciting time for you guys! And these pops look superb. Will be making STAT!

    1. Thanks for the congrats and all the support, Ashton!! You will LOVE these. I hope you enjoyed the quinoa salad!

  7. Wow I can’t believe that’s all there is to them – they look divine! And I love the colour!

  8. It’s so hard not to buy all the lovely kitchen gadgets! I swore I was gonna use that electric fondue maker more!
    Good luck with packing it all…
    These look amazing! Could I add a teeny splash of lime juice for that zing? I love the pink! And the pineapple juice is inspired!

    1. Ok now that you mention an electric fondue maker, I want one! It’s an addiction. Lime juice is a great, flavorful addition Mir. Enjoy!

  9. I literally JUST bought popsicle molds and my first popsicles..and now I want popsicles for every meal! These look perfect, and such a pretty color! Pinned!

  10. 3 ingredients and none of the fake, phony ingredients!

    Bless you Sally. No guilt in serving these up to the kids. Thanks!!!

    1. Yes – 3 real ingredients. I read the ingredients in “healthy” store bought popsicles the other day and was shocked!

  11. What a great treat for the summer! I just bought some popsicle molds a few weeks ago and made some over the weekend. Love how easy it is. This recipe looks delish…definitely trying this out!

  12. Yum! And I totally have that “eat, drink, bake” spatula. It’s one of my fav! Such a sturdy handle! Hahaha. I’m so glad you’ll be closer to Philly! Good luck packing… It’s seriously THE. WORST. I’d honestly rather go to the gynecologist…

  13. Congrats on your upcoming move! (And upcoming bigger kitchen – whoo!) These popsicles look perfect as well. Love those simple, healthy ingredients!

  14. OMG congrats on the move!! I’m currently living in Philly and it’s awesome! If you need help getting adjust or want me to introduce you to all my fave spots please let me know!

  15. Can’t wait for you to move to Philly because I am hoping you will have some book signings 🙂 It is a great area and I’d be happy to give you any suggestions/help if you have questions, although I know you are quite familiar with the area already 🙂 🙂

  16. Sally, congratulation on moving! I hope you have so much fun decorating your home! Glad Kevin found a job and you will have a bigger kitchen.
    Love your healthy summer treat. I also love you didn’t add sugar. Fruits are sweet enough. I definitely have to buy popsicle molds 😉

    1. Olivia, I couldn’t agree more – summer strawberries are so sweet already – not to mention the pineapple juice!

  17. Congratulations on the move and getting to go back home.. Now if you could possibly move to Melbourne, Australia and come and bake for me everyday that would be greatly appreciated 🙂

  18. Our almost 4 yo grand son planted his first strawberry patch this year. These two recipes will be so easy to make with mommy. Thank you n Blessings..Dawn
    PS: blessings to you both in your new home n ventures

  19. Pretty much I love everything about this post! The ridiculous amount of pink is my favorite 🙂 Three ingredient, healthy, and super easy? totally on board! Pinned 🙂 Hope you had a great weekend Sally!

  20. Congratulations! I feel your pain for packing up a kitchen with way too many “accessories!” – we bought our house last year and had to pack and move during the hottest week. I packed the house up in a weekend (and took part in the Race for Life 5k run for Cancer Research UK). Believe me, it will all be worth it when you are in your lovely new (bigger!) kitchen baking up a storm!

    Love the healthy popsicle recipe – thanks! I’ve just been to the store and bought strawberries and bananas – it must be fate!

    1. It is fate! You have to make these as soon as you can, Anne-Marie. Wow, I am very impressed that you packed up your entire lives in 1 weekend! I feel like this will take me a few weeks! Clearly I’m doing something wrong. Thanks for the kind words!

  21. How about dipping the tip or half in some chocolate? I know my sweet tooth talking 🙂 but a little less healthy but who does not want chocolate?

  22. Hi Sally,

    Congratulations on your big move, Kevin’s new job and your new house! What a year you are having! I feel your “packing” pain!
    Hubby & I are on the road and almost to our California destination with our son, daughter-in-law and grandbabies!

    But first, a three day vaca in Las Vegas by the pool with margaritas!

    I don’t know where our “stuff” is in this country as it’s being shipped and right now, I don’t care!

    Driving across these beautiful unites States of America is an incredible experience….those of you who live in Colorado, you are blessed…it’s stunning!

    Can’t wait to make these healthy and delicious looking pops for the grands!

    Debbi

    1. Isn’t Colorado the best?! Kevin used to live there and I would LOVE to live there with him one day. Enjoy vegas! I am extremely jealous of pool and margarita time, Debbi. You deserve it after packing up your entire life. Thanks for the kind words!
