Strawberry Popsicles

Remember when I showed you these?


Well, I love them.


I sat outside one hot afternoon after work and devoured one. Totally did the job of cooling me down and providing me a healthy, practically no calorie snack (not like they're all going to be like that, I'm trying these next).

For my first attempt at popsicle making, I went with something easy. Puree strawberries and add lemon juice. There's no way you can screw that up folks! Strawberries are finally in season and are going for great prices in grocery stores. Grab yourself a carton and buy popsicle molds, if you haven't already!

Makes 4 Popsicles

1 carton strawberries, rinsed and hull removed
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Slice the strawberries and put them into a medium bowl. Add the sugar and stir until all of the strawberries are coated in sugar. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.

Remove strawberries from the refrigerator and put them into a blender of food processor. Add the lemon juice and puree until smooth. Pour mixture into popsicle molds. Put molds in the freezer until popsicles are frozen, at least 3-4 hours.

When popsicles are frozen, remove from freezer. Let sit out for a few minutes before removing them from the molds. You can also run a little hot water over the molds to help them pop out.

What summer treats have you been enjoying?

  2. I need to pull out my popsicle molds and make some of these frozen treats. My air conditioner is broken and they'd be perfect for an afternoon "cool snack" when I get home from work. :)
