Sublime Strawberry Popsicles


Welcome to TSRI's Summer Grilling Celebration!  Nothing beats the summer heat like an icy cold summery treat.  I love popsicles!  They are light, refreshing, so easy to make and made perfectly sweet for you, as you control the sugar.  There was not much thinking when I was deciding what flavor to make.  Chad and I scored the best strawberries at the grocery store last week.  We ended up buying around 70 pounds total.  Needless to say, we are stocked for the year on Strawberry Jam and have been enjoying manye summery desserts.  It truly was lucky to get such great strawberries for such a great price.


I have been making this simple recipe and sharing it with everyone who pops in.  It is so scrumptious that I have been through several batches already.  The adults are blown away that they are home made. The kids gobble them up and I enjoy every minute of it.  Munchkin asks for these all the time.  The best part is...  I feel good about feeding them to her.

Sublime Strawberry Popsicles
serves 10

2 pounds ripe strawberries, washed, hulled and halved
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons lemon juice

Place strawberries in a medium bowl.  Add sugar.  Toss to coat.  Allow berries to macerate for about 30 minutes.  Once you see juice in the bowl you can move on to the next step.

Add strawberries and lemon juice to food processor.  Blend until strawberries are pureed.  Add to popsicle molds.  Freeze for 4-24 hours.  I leave mine in for 24 hours.

  3. Amazing! (:
    How do you think they'd work with frozen strawberries? Defrost first or no?

    Either way though, I'll pick up some strawberries just for these!
