Strawberry Popsicles

                          STRAWBERRY POPSICLES (small batch)

YIELD: 5-6 POPSICLES depending of popsicle mold size

My daughter, granddaughter and I went strawberry picking this last June.  My granddaughter enjoyed eating them more than she did picking.  There really is nothing better than a fresh picked strawberry but you can only eat so many before you end up freezing the rest.  Which isn't a bad thing because I use the frozen berries to make a compote to go over yogurt, add them to smoothies and to make these delicious strawberry Popsicles.  I make then often as my Granddaughter LOVES them.  I've run out of the fresh frozen berries so now just use the bagged frozen strawberries from the grocery store and they're still delicious.  Summer is winding down so the popsicle molds will soon get put away until next summer when we'll pick even more strawberries!

  • 2 cups (8 ounces) ripe strawberries or frozen strawberries (thaw first)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup  water
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice


  • Add strawberries, sugar, water, and lemon juice to a blender. Blend until smooth.
  • Transfer the mixture to popsicle molds. Freeze until firm. (use paper cups with popsicle sticks if you don't have popsicle mods)

*Best made with freshly picked strawberries in season but are still delicious with ripe or frozen strawberries.

*Don’t reduce the sugar, in addition to sweetening the pops, sugar lowers the freezing point and reduces ice crystals, ensuring you have a popsicle “soft” enough to bite into without breaking your teeth on an ice cube.

*To loosen popsicles, run mold under lukewarm water for a minute or so. Be careful you don’t get water inside the mold!

After a minute under running water, twist carefully and pull the popsicles out of their molds.
