Berry season is here, so it's the perfect time to try these summery vegan strawberry ice cream bars. Made with just a few simple ingredients, these ice cream bars are a healthy alternative to shop-bought ice creams. The coconut milk base gives them a creamy texture, perfect when paired with seasonal sweet strawberries.

I've used agave syrup to make these ice creams as I wanted to use a natural sweetener that had a neutral taste. However, feel free to use maple syrup instead if you prefer.

The recipe calls for freeze-dried strawberries pieces, which can also be found in powdered form. While the dried strawberries intensify the flavor and sweetness of this recipe, they are optional, so don't sweat if you can't get your hands on some, the ice creams are still delicious with it!

MADE IN JUST A FEW EASY STEPS

These vegan strawberry ice cream bars take just a few easy steps to make. It's as simple as blending the ingredients up and waiting for them to set!

Once you've added all the ingredients to your blender, be sure to get the mixture nice and smooth without lumps.

I recommend placing the ice cream molds on a tray or chopping board before filling them with the ice cream. This makes it much easier to transfer them in and out of the freezer.

The setting time will depend on your freezer, but I usually leave them for at least 4-6 hours before removing them from the silicone molds.

These ice cream bars will store for a couple of months in an airtight container in your freezer.
