On my last jaunt to the strawberry stand, I took my kitten along for the ride in an attempt to acclimate her to the car. While I was delighted over the freshly picked berries, she was less than thrilled with me and whined most pitifully during the short (7 minute) drive home. We settled in to our perspective spaces, she napping happily in the sun and me whirling together these pretty pops. She may never like the car, but at least we have strawberries!

Strawberry White Chocolate Popsicles

  • Yield: 10 popsicles

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups sliced strawberries
  • 1 can (13.5 oz) full fat coconut milk
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla bean paste (or extract)
  • 1 Tbsp vodka

White Chocolate Drizzle

  • 2 oz white chocolate, chopped
  • 1 tsp coconut oil

Instructions

  1. Combine strawberries, coconut milk, sugar, salt, vanilla bean paste, and vodka in a blender or food processor; process until smooth. Chill mixture for 2 hours in the refrigerator.
  2. Fill popsicle molds with chilled mixture, leaving a 1/2-inch of space at the top of each mold. Freeze for about an hour, then insert popsicle sticks and freeze overnight. To unmold, let popsicles stand at room temperature for 5 minutes. Carefully remove from molds and place on a parchment lined baking sheet; freeze for 2 hours.
  3. For the white chocolate drizzle, combine white chocolate and coconut oil in a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on high for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Continue microwaving and stirring in 15 second intervals until melted and smooth. Let cool to room temperature. Drizzle over popsicles and freeze for 20 minutes, then serve.

Notes

The vodka prevents the popsicles from freezing too firmly; omit if you wish. Popsicle molds: I use these.

  1. Ha! My cat hates the car too, but luckly I never think to really bring him a long in the car…unless I am moving or something!

    Love these popsicles. Bring on the strawberries!

  2. Laura your redesign is fantastic and better showcases your beautiful photography and tasty creations. πŸ™‚ Like that these popsicles use fresh strawberries and the drizzle of white chocolate – refreshing treat!

  3. Laura, Latte is the cutest!!! I love that she has her own IG page! I don’t know too many cats who like to be in the car . . they are more homebodies I think. . LOVE these glorious pops!!! SO pretty!!!!!

  4. We took our cat to our grandparents one Thanksgiving. He did not appreciate the 8 hour drive and hid under the seat howling off and on. We didn’t ever do that again! Latte is gorgeous—as are your popsicles!!!

  5. These popsicles are gorgeous, Laura! That color!

    And hahah, our shih-tzus and cats hate car rides! I think they understand that a car ride usually means a trip to the vet…. πŸ™‚

  6. I think cats enjoy car rides as much as getting a bath. Of course their contrary nature makes them all the more endearing. πŸ˜€ Love these popsicles!! If I could stop noshing on strawberries, maybe I could actually make something with them. They’re so sweet this year!!

  7. Awe poor kitty. I say keep taking her on short rides so that she can slowly get used to the car. Nothing is worse than having a stressed out kitty at the vet. My guys are very relaxed in the car but it hasn’t always been so. It helps to position them so that they can see you during the ride and you may want to experiment with size of carrier. My female whined like the dickens until we bought her a bigger carrier. Now she is much more relaxed.

    On a different note, these popsicles are gorgeous. I love the white chocolate drizzle. It makes these truly a work of art.

    1. Hi Lynn, thanks so much for that tip on the carrier. That’s great advice, I will try it during our next short ride! πŸ™‚

  8. Love the flavor of these pops and the chocolate swirl is a great idea! My friend’s cat is the same way, hates car rides! Love the IG page πŸ™‚
