Canadian Flag Popsicles

Looking for delicious and patriotic snacks for a Canada Day party? These Canadian Flag Popsicles made with fresh strawberries and a cream cheese filling are the perfect sweet treat to serve at a Canada Day BBQ. 

I am from Canada and I love making Canadian themed food. When I found a cute mini maple leaf cookie cutter at our local kitchen store, my head filled with all kinds of fun food creations I could make with it. One of the ideas I envisioned making were these uniquely Canadian ice pops. I am thrilled with how cute and delicious they turned out.

I chose to use fresh, pureed strawberries for the red part of the flag and a vanilla cream cheese mixture for the white part of the flag. For the maple leaf, I used a thin slice of strawberry cut out with my new cookie cutter. They were absolutely luscious and were so much fun to make.

I am happy with the results of my first trial run, so I am going to make a whole bunch of these Canadian Flag Popsicles for our Canada Day celebrations along with a few more fun treats that I have up my sleeve.

I made these Canadian Flag Popsicles in our Zoku Quick Pop Maker, using the Fruit Wand and Siphon tool from the Zoku Quick Pop Tools. To make the popsicle mixtures, I used my Magic Bullet Blender which is perfect for making more than one flavor because it has multiple containers. For the maple leaf shape, I used a mini maple leaf cookie cutter.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 20 minutes

Yield: 6 Zoku popsicles

Canadian Flag Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup plus 3 to 4 large strawberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar or honey
  • 1/4 cup cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 tbsp sugar or honey

Instructions

  1. Thinly slice a few large strawberries. Using a mini maple leaf cutter, cut out six maple leafs. If you want your ice pops double sided, you will need 12.
  2. Put the rest of the strawberries and the leftovers from above, water and sugar in a blender and puree.
  3. In a blender, puree the softened ream cheese, milk, sugar and vanilla until it is creamy and no lumps remain.
  4. Remove your frozen Zoku from the freezer. I recommend working under a bright light or having a flashlight handy.
  5. Place one strawberry maple leaf on the Fruit Wand sideways. Insert the wand into one slot and press the strawberry onto one side, trying to get it as close to the center as possible. Gently run the wand over the entire berry to ensure you seal all the edges. Repeat for each slot.
  6. Insert the popsicle sticks into the mold.
  7. Using the Siphon tool, squeeze out a small amount of the strawberry puree into the popsicle molds, filling them to just below the strawberry maple leaf.
  8. Place the Zoku back in the freezer and allow to freeze for another 5 minutes.
  9. Again, using the Siphon tool, squeeze the cream cheese mixture into the mold, filling it until it just covers the top of the strawberry maple leaf.
  10. Place the Zoku back in the freezer and allow to freeze for another 5 minutes.
  11. Fill the popsicle molds to the fill line with another layer of the strawberry puree.
  12. Allow to freeze for another 5 minutes.
  13. Use the Zoku Super Tool to release the frozen popsicles from the mold and enjoy!
