3 ingredients make the most perfect Strawberry Ice Pop! It’s the consummate summertime treat.
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 many summery desserts. It truly was lucky to get such great strawberries for such a great price.
Sublime Strawberry Popsicles
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.
Helpful Tips to make Sublime Strawberry Popsicles:
- Adding a little sugar to the berries and allowing them to macerate really amps up the strawberry flavor in addition to bringing out their sweetness.
- I love lemon juice in these pops, but lime or orange will be delicious as well.
- After they freeze, I store my popsicles in snack size ziptop bags and place all of those individual bags into a gallon size ziptop bag. They keep well for 6 – 8 months.
What you will need to make Sublime Strawberry Popsicles:
- Popsicle molds – these are our favorite, although any mold will work.
- Blender – I love to use a high powered blender for all smoothies and it is perfect for these ice pops.
