Cool, refreshing, and healthy, these three ingredient strawberry frozen bites are sure to cool you down this summer!
Canada day is this Friday, and that means a long weekend for many! Even my American readers will be enjoying a long weekend since July 4th falls on a Monday. That being said, everyone is looking for easy and delicious recipes that knock the socks off their guests (though, in these temperatures, I am not wearing socks...)
These three ingredient strawberry frozen bites are inspired by Danielle at The Creative Bite (remember how I covered her skinny frozen peanut butter whips?!) I kept thinking about them and how simple they were. Well, strawberries are in season and I LOVE coconut so this recipe just seemed perfect. And it was! My daughter has been eating these things with no complaints and deems them "not a treat" because they are healthy and "eating healthy foods are good for you." Well, you are right, kiddo, but there is also such thing as too much of a good thing 🙂 That being said, I have no problems with her snacking on these because they are much healthier than a lot of treats out there (personally, I love enjoying some mojitos through the summer!)
Of course, these three ingredient strawberry frozen bites need to stay in the freezer, but being that they are so small (and cute!) when you serve them your guests should have little to no mess because they will inhale them! Like I said, I had to keep a small child's hand from the freezer bag...
- ¼ cup fresh strawberry puree (about ½ lb fresh strawberries)
- 1 cup fat-free Cool Whip
- ½ cup unsweetened shredded coconut
- To make strawberry puree, just add fresh strawberries to a food processor and process until smooth.
- Place coconut into food processor and process until very fine (1-2 minutes.)
- Add the coconut, puree, and Cool Whip to a large mixing bowl and stir with a spatula until just combined.
- Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or silicone liner. Measure out one tablespoon-sized portions onto the pan. Pop into the freezer until frozen solid (about 5 minutes.)
- Eat as is or move to a freezer bag for quick access (work quickly so they do not get soft!)

Super light and refreshing, you can definitely make these your own by changing up the fruit. I have some blueberries on hand and cannot wait to try the recipe with them. I wonder if I could ever get some rhubarb into these... One day!
