The 'With Food and Love' blog has developed a recipe for sweet DIY strawberry ice pops that have been infused with fresh basil leaves. Creamier than a regular popsicle, this ice pop recipe uses full-fat coconut milk for a treat that is dairy-free and vegan-friendly.

To make the DIY strawberry ice pops you will need full-fat coconut milk, pitted Medjool dates, lemon juice, vanilla extract, fresh strawberries and a handful of basil leaves. If you are not adhering to a vegan diet, you can always substitute the dates for a bit of honey. Once you have your ingredients assembled, combine the coconut milk, lemon juice, vanilla extract and sweetener of choice in a high-speed blender. Once the mixture is fully combined, add in the strawberries and basil until the leaves are finely chopped. Pour the strawberry mixture into popsicle molds and place in the freezer. In just a few hours you will be able to enjoy your sweet and tangy ice pop treats.
