Strawberry Popsicles

We made these for the first-time last summer and they were a big hit.  They are so easy to make and taste like summer on a stick.  And, with no added sugar they’re also a healthy treat that the kiddos will gobble up.

Ingredients:

4 c strawberries (cleaned with stems removed)
zest and juice of 1 lime

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in a blender and puree until completely smooth.
  2. Pour into popsicle molds, insert sticks, and freeze 3-4 hours, or until very solid

Notes:

Popsicle Mold: We used little cups for our popsicle molds. It helps to cover them with foil or plastic wrap and then insert the popsicle stick thru the material to keep them in place. Or let the popsicles freeze for about an hour and then add the sticks.

Let’s Talk Lime: If you want to taste the lime, be sure to add the lime zest. If you’d prefer the strawberry to be the main flavor, just use the juice.

Change it Up: Feel free to swap lemon or orange or another flavor for the lime.
