Healthy Strawberry Popsicles With Chia Seeds (Vegan Recipe)

12:56 PM

These frozen strawberry popsicles are made with real fruit and chia seeds with without yogurt.  They have a creamy texture thanks to the chia seeds, and they make great breakfast popsicles.  They are vegan popsicles and made without any dairy products that are in most healthy strawberry popsicles.


During the school year, I work full time and homeschool three kids.  The oldest needs driven to his college classes (dual enrollment) and the middle one has autism therapy several times a week.


Since my kids are homeschooled, they are active in extra activities like scouts, theater, and martial arts.  We have plans at least 5 nights a week.


But when summer rolls around, it all stops save martial arts and one scout meeting.  That's when mom gives zero cares about schedules and most thing in general.


When I say "lazy days of summer", I truly mean it.  In the summer, swimming counts as a shower, and I don't even care if the kids are up until midnight.

We make homemade ice cream, get popcorn at the drive in, and make memories, but that doesn't mean that proper nutrition is completely gone for the summer.


I am kind of the master of sneaking healthy foods into kids.  I was doing it way before all those fancy books came out.


Autism moms are pretty sneaky when it comes to nutrition.  When your kids only eats seven foods, you learn how to make each bite count.


Popsicles for breakfast this summer?  Sure!  Mom made these healthy strawberry popsicles.  They make great breakfast popsicles.


Dessert?  Yep, they make a great dessert, too.  


Since strawberries are just coming into season, I made a batch of strawberry popsicles homemade with chia seeds.  As fast as we are eating them, I'll be making a few more batches before the berries are out of season this year.


My daughter and I are limited our milk consumption, so I made dairy free popsicles so we can both have them.  Make chia popsicles to thicken the pops without using yogurt.

These strawberry vegan popsicles homemade are so yummy, your kids won't know they are healthy.  Like most of my recipes, I'll tell you how to modify it to fit your tastes.


This is like making chia seed pudding, but you add fruit and freeze it.  If you haven't tried chia seed pudding, put this mixed berry chia seed pudding on your to make list.  It make a yummy easy breakfast.  Or try this pumpkin spice overnight oats recipe with chia seeds.


Whole Fruit Frozen Strawberry Popsicles


I made frozen strawberry vegan popsicles because they are in season.  I get my strawberries from the Amish, I'm not sure what they do differently, but they are the best strawberries you can buy and make delicious breakfast popsicles.




You can try these breakfast popsicles with other fruits too.  Kiwi, mango, and berries would be really good!  Learn how to make whole fruit popsicles for more flavor options.


Coconut Milk for Frozen Strawberry Popsicles


I used coconut milk  to make dairy free popsicles because I keep it on hand.  You can buy it in cans, so it's shelf stable.  I use it in my coffee creamers, so I usually have some on the shelf.  


You could also use almond milk or even rice milk for this vegan popsicles recipe.  It just depends on your tastes and what you have access to.


You can use coconut milk in my pumpkin spice coffee creamer or my peppermint mocha coffee creamer.


Coconut milk gives these healthy strawberry popsicles a refreshing flavor, and they also make them vegan popsicles since it replaces the yogurt.


Chia Seeds in Breakfast Popsicles


The star of this recipe, besides the berries, is chia seeds.  Chia seeds are packed with nutrition and healthy fats for your body, so I wanted to use them to make chia popsicles.


They are high in antioxidants, fiber, omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, and iron.  The fatty acids help raise your good cholesterol.




So yes, you can enjoy these healthy strawberry popsicles homemade for breakfast, dessert, or any time.
Chia seeds are also great for beauty!  Learn the beauty benefits of chia seeds for hair and skin.


The chia seeds work to thicken the coconut milk, so you can make dairy free popsicles that are still thick without using yogurt.


Frozen Strawberry Popsicles Sweetener


I buy raw honey from the Amish, so I use that.  I think honey has a better flavor in this recipe, but you can also use maple syrup for vegan popsicles.    


I haven't tried these with any other sweetener.  I think stevia would also work well, but you'll have to taste the pudding before you freeze it in the molds to make sure it's the right sweetness.

Breakfast Popsicle Molds


If you don't have a popsicle mold to make dairy free popsicles, you can use dixie cups and popsicle sticks.  We make a lot of healthy popsicle recipes, so I invested in the molds.


We used to have one that had the reusable sticks, but those are the things that get lost all the time.  I switched to a silicone mold that uses wooden sticks for my vegan popsicles.


There are so many fun popsicle molds available to make chia popsicles.  Some are silicone, some are shaped, and some have reusable sticks.


Now I can take the pops out and put them in the freezer and reuse the molds to make different flavors.
