Step 1: Prepare the Crunch

Begin by creating the delectable Strawberry Crunch topping that will add a delightful texture to your ice cream bars.

  1. Pulse the Vanilla Cookies: Take your vanilla cookies and place them in a food processor. Pulse them until they reach your desired consistency. You want them to be crumbled but not too fine. Set the crumbled cookies aside for later use.
  2. Pulse the Freeze-dried Strawberries: Next, add the freeze-dried strawberries to the food processor. Pulse them until they are finely chopped. These will provide a burst of strawberry flavor and a touch of tanginess to your crunch.
  3. Mix the Crunchies Together: Combine the crumbled vanilla cookies and chopped freeze-dried strawberries in a bowl. Mix them well, ensuring an even distribution of flavors and textures. You’ll be amazed by the vibrant colors and enticing aroma this mixture offers.




Step 2: Assemble Your Ice Cream Bars

Now that your Strawberry Crunch is ready, it’s time to take your Helados Mexico Strawberry Cream Paletas and transform them into irresistible ice cream bars.

  1. Dip Your Paleta: Carefully dip a Strawberry Cream Paleta from Helados Mexico into the prepared Strawberry Crunch mixture. Make sure to coat the entire paleta with the delightful crunch, pressing it gently to ensure it adheres.
  2. Freeze for Perfection: Place the coated paleta on a parchment-lined tray or baking sheet. Repeat this process for as many ice cream bars as you’d like to make. Once all your paletas are coated, pop them into the freezer for at least 30 minutes. This time allows the Strawberry Crunch to set and the ice cream to firm up.
  3. Serve and Enjoy: Once your homemade strawberry shortcake ice cream bars are frozen and ready to enjoy, take them out of the freezer and savor every bite. The combination of the creamy strawberry ice cream from Helados Mexico and the Strawberry Crunch topping will transport you straight back to your childhood.
