Vanilla Ice Cream Popsicles with Roasted Strawberry Swirls

Vanilla Ice Cream Popsicles with Roasted Strawberry Swirls

Sharing is caring!

I have had this recipe for Vanilla Ice Cream Popsicles with Roasted Strawberry Swirls on my mind all summer, and every time I ventured out to pick up the ingredients, I would forget the ice cream.  Towards the middle of July, the fine folks at Tillamook surprised us with a package of ice cream, and their timing was perfect as we were having a heatwave.

Before receiving this delivery of icy goodness, we didn’t even know that Tillamook made ice cream.  We thought they were all about cheese and yogurt as that is most often what we can find near us.  It turns out they are getting their hands dirty all over the dairy,  as they also churn out butter and sour cream.  We stand behind what Tillamook is about as they only use the highest quality of cows milk which has not treated with artificial growth hormones.  As well their ice cream contains 13.5% of rich and delicious butterfat.  Do you know what that means?  Their ice cream has an ultra-smooth and creamy texture, just the way ice cream should be.

Another great that we like about Tillamook is that they are a co-op opposed to a major corporation. All of the farmers live on or close by the land that they farm, and raise their cattle on; basically, they share the land with the animals they care for. Over a hundred years ago small creameries teamed up with the Tillamook Country Creamery Associate to make sure the quality of the cheese made was of high standards. They worked together towards this goal and ended up producing better products. They practice what they preach, and stick to their values. We like that.

Back to ice cream.  They were so kind to send us six (6) different flavors to try out:

  • Fireside S’mores
  • Chocolate Peanut Butter
  • Marionberry Pie
  • Old Fashioned Vanilla
  • Oregon Strawberry
  • Tillamook Mudslide

So far we have tried all of them except the Oregon Strawberry.  The verdict?  Yep, we are enjoying Tillamook ice cream.  As mentioned above the ice cream is creamy, and the flavors stand out.  Our favorites by far have been the Fireside Smores, Tillamook Mudslide, and the Marionberry Pie.  Have you ever had a marionberry?  We hadn’t until we tried this ice cream, and now we want it all the time.  It screams summer.

I decided to play around with the Old Fashioned Vanilla and make some popsicles.  Originally, I was going to make an orangesicle but then decided to roast summertime strawberries.  The caramelized strawberries are a dream when mixed with this creamy vanilla ice cream and make the vanilla bean pop even more.

Thank you Tillamook for cooling us down, we are having an even more delicious summer thanks to your generosity.

Thank you for joining us at the Chez Us table;  we love having you here.

I have had the Marionberry Pie ice cream at the factory in Oregon. You are right - it is so amazing. I probably can't get that particular flavor locally, but I am willing to try (as the Tillamook website says that my local Safeway has their ice cream)!!

Hi there-- just came across your blog while looking for peach buttermilk ice cream recipes (yours looks lovely). Your photos are gorgeous and I can't wait to explore the site further. Such timing, too-- we love Tillamook ice cream around here (especially mudslide and Oregon strawberry) but have never tried the fireside s'mores flavor. Sounds yummy!
