These dairy-free strawberry crunch ice cream bites are the perfect treat to keep in your freezer all summer! They’re coated with dairy-free chocolate and puffed quinoa for that perfect crunch and strawberry for a pop of freshness.

One of my personal favorite treats to keep in the freezer is Dream Pops ice cream bites! They’re mini ice cream bites coated with chocolate and just the best little treat. I love to serve them with a bowl of berries for the sweet and creamy vibe, and I got to thinking… why don’t I just marry these two flavors together in one easy recipe?

The Ingredients for Dairy Free Strawberry Crunch Ice Cream Bites

How to make Dairy Free Strawberry Crunch Ice Cream Bites

  • Step One. Soften the ice cream.
  • Step Two. Place a slice of strawberry in mold with ice cream and level out. Place in freezer.

  • Step Three. Melt chocolate chips and coconut oil and then add the puffed quinoa.
  • Step Four. Take each ice cream cube and cover in melted chocolate and top with flakey salt.
  • Step Five. Keep frozen and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  • Be careful dipping the ice cream! The ice cream can easily melt into the chocolate, making it harder to coat. Be sure you don’t fully submerge the ice cream bites in the chocolate and do most of the coating hovering the ice cream above the bowl of chocolate. 
  • Make sure you’re working with the right temperatures. Patience is key! You need the ice cream bites to be really frozen to coat in chocolate, and the chocolate to not be piping hot so it won’t melt the ice cream!

Dairy Free Strawberry Crunch Ice Cream Bites

  • Author: Unbound Wellness
  • Yield: 10 ice cream bites 1x


  • 23 strawberries, sliced into 10 slices
  • 1 1/4 cup dairy-free ice cream (I use this)
  • 1 cup dairy-free chocolate chips (I use this)
  • 2 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 tbsp puffed quinoa
  • Flakey salt


  1. Allow the ice cream to sit at room temperature for a bit to soften enough to where it’s easier to scoop.
  2. Using a square mold (like this), place a slice of strawberry inside each mold. Spoon 2 tbsp of ice cream into each mold and use a spatula to level out the tops. Place the lid on the mold and return to the freezer for several hours (or overnight) until fully solid. 
  3. Combine the chocolate chips and coconut oil in a glass bowl and melt in the microwave in 20-second intervals, stirring every interval, or melt over a double boiler. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Stir the puffed quinoa into the melted chocolate. Allow to sit for a few minutes to cool.
  4. Prepare a large plate lined with parchment paper and remove the ice cream from the freezer. Working with one ice cream cube at a time, remove it from the mold and place it on a fork. Hover the fork over the melted chocolate, using a spoon to coat the ice cream in chocolate. Dip the fork in the chocolate for just a second to barely coat the bottom of the ice cream. Quickly transfer to the parchment lined plate and top with some flakey salt. Repeat for all of the ice cream and return to the freezer to harden.
  5. Store in an airtight container in the freezer for a month, and grab one (or more) out of the freezer whenever you want an ice cream snack bite!!
