Strawberries and Cream Paletas

The classic combo of strawberries and cream come together for a delightfully refreshing treat. Dice or mash some of the strawberries if you like extra texture. 


  • 2 lbs hulled strawberries, divided 
  • 23 cup sugar 
  • ½ cup heavy cream 
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice 


  1. Purée all except 1 ½ cup strawberries in a blender. Set a fine strainer over a bowl; strain strawberry purée, discarding solids. 
  2. Whisk in sugar, heavy cream and lemon juice until sugar dissolves. 
  3. Finely dice or mash (with a potato masher) the reserved 1 ½ cups strawberries and fold into mixture. Pour into six 4-oz ice pop molds, leaving ½ inch at the top. 
  4. Transfer molds to freezer and freeze until slushy, about 1 hour. Insert a popsicle stick into each mold and freeze until pops are solid, about 3 hours more.
