  1. Remove the stems from the strawberries and peel the bananas.
  2. Place strawberries (whole, or sliced if you prefer) and bananas into the blender. Add water and sweeteners, then blend well until smooth and chunk free.
  3. Pour the blended strawberry banana mixture into 2 popsicle trays with 8 popsicle molds, then place the popsicle sticks on top. Freeze the popsicles overnight, then run warm water over the bottom of the popsicle mold to loosen the popsicles. Enjoy! More photos and tips Below.

Note* If making these for a child under one, it is not recommended to feed an infant honey or maple syrup. These Ice pops can be made without any added sweetener for babies under one (baby should be old enough to be able to handle table foods etc. the age can vary per child and family). If you prefer, you can replace some of the strawberries with more banana for a slightly sweeter taste for your baby. These popsicles could break off into chunks: if your baby cannot chew solids yet you can simply leave the strawberry banana mixture in puree form and keep refrigerated for your baby.

Ready to freeze. My kids love these colorful lids that came with the popsicle tray. I do need to find another set because sadly I already broke a top!
