How to Make Strawberry Banana Popsicles

Can you believe you only need three ingredients to make Strawberry Banana Popsicles?


I love using bananas for popsicle recipes because they’re naturally sweet, tender, and healthy. Their soft texture makes them easy to blend. Bananas are also easy to prepare and peel! 

These bananas also help give the mixture a smooth and creamy texture for freezing. Moreover, they add a floral and fruity aroma to keep you wanting more. 

According to HealthXchange, bananas are good for your metabolism, liver, kidneys, and nerves. They also have vitamins to help with your mood, stress relief, and sleep quality.

Bananas are also some of the most versatile fruits. You can eat them raw or in salads, pastries, smoothies, desserts, and more. Turn them into Banana Puff Puff, porridge, fufu, or bread!


Why should you use strawberries for popsicle recipes? They have a sweet, tarty, and saccharine flavor that goes well with almost any fruit. 

Strawberries also have a vibrant color that makes the popsicles appetizing! Like bananas, these are soft and sweet fruits. 

Everyday Health suggests eating more strawberries because they’re rich in antioxidants for overall health. Additionally, these berries are great for your brain function, heart, and gut. 

Aside from coating them with chocolate, there are plenty of other recipes you can make with strawberries. I usually add them to a Berries Smoothie, Strawberry Banana Milkshake, Strawberry Popsicles, or Ice Cream Bars for the perfect fruit flavor. I also use them in making strawberry jam

Apple juice

When making popsicles, ensure to add a liquid base. In this recipe, apple juice helps adds a smoother consistency to allow the popsicles to freeze properly. 

I suggest using freshly juiced apples to enjoy the tarty and sweet flavor. There are ready-to-use apple juice boxes in grocery stores, but homemade apple juice is way healthier! 

An article by Style Craze mentioned that apple juice might have a fat-burning potential to help lose weight. It can also do wonders for your skin, eyes, liver, brain, and heart. 

Are you already loving these Strawberry Banana Popsicles? They will take several hours to freeze, so let’s start making it now!

Use the fresh apple juice within two hours. Otherwise, store it in the fridge for two days or in the freezer for several days or weeks.
