These Strawberry Cream Dairy Free Popsicles are the bomb! Made with fresh strawberries, coconut milk, vanilla and maple syrup, they’re wholesome, healthy and decadent.
If you have digestive distress like bloating, gas, upset stomach, diarrhea or constipation, you might be sensitive to dairy. How do you figure out if dairy is a problem? Perform an elimination test.
- Eliminate ALL dairy for at least 21 days.
- Evaluate how you feel during this time period. Over time, are you feeling less digestive upset? Less gas and bloating? If so, that is your first clue that you and dairy need to part ways.
- If you feel better after the 21 days but want to double make sure that dairy is an issue, eat a little bit of dairy during EVERY meal on day 22.
- Evaluate how you feel for the next 72 hours. Did the digestive distress come back? If so, you have your answer!
To make a dairy free but still creamy popsicle, I use canned coconut milk. It’s an excellent source of fat to provide energy, keep you from overeating and help build those cell membranes and hormones.
Dairy free popsicles are really fun to make, and the flavor possibilities are endless. Don’t be afraid to experiment with flavors. I’m working on recipes for chocolate fudge and blueberry basil. Those are coming soon, so stay tuned!
Most of my popsicle molds come from Amazon. These are some great ones: Norpro Ice Pop Maker, Ozera Reusable Popsicle Molds and Sunsella Mighty Pops. Just run a little warm water over the molds for about 30 seconds to loosen those popsicles for eating.
Have so much fun making popsicles, and let me know how it goes!
