Ingredient Notes and Substitutes

  • Strawberries: This recipe will work with either fresh strawberries or frozen strawberries. You can also use other berries: raspberries, blueberries, blackberries or boysenberries.
  • Strawberry puree: I like to add homemade strawberry puree to my popsicles as it adds a richness of flavour and gives the ice blocks a better texture. You could always use strayberry jam as an alternative.
  • Elderflower cordial: The elderflower cordial adds lovely floral flavors to the popsicle but it is not essential. The elderflower cordial can be substituted for honey, water or you can double the quantity of strawberry puree used.

Top Tips

Here is how you can make these homemade popsicles perfectly every time!

  • Store your pops in their molds in the freezer for up to one month

  • A hack (that I didn't use when making these ice blocks) but does change the texture of the ice blocks and reduces the formation of ice crystals is to add 1-2 teaspoons of corn flour (corn starch) to the mix.
