Homemade Strawberry Popsicles

Do you make homemade popsicles? If not, you will not believe how easy it can be.

If you cringe every time you read the ingredients list on those chemical-pops that come off the ice cream truck, you will definitely want this recipe.

Oh yeah, baby!

We had a quart of strawberries from the farmer’s market getting soft in our refrigerator, so last night I decided to make homemade strawberry popsicles.

All I did was take a quart of beheaded strawberries and toss them into the food processor. I added 1/2 cup raw honey and a couple tablespoons of lemon juice, and then blended until it was nice and smooth.

Then I poured them into my handy-dandy popsicle molds and stuck ‘em in the freezer.

(NOTE: this recipe makes enough for two sets of molds. I had to borrow from a neighbor to finish them off.)

This afternoon when my kids got home from school, they each enjoyed a nice cold homemade strawberry popsicle!

Kids are happy. Mama’s happy. Everybody wins! (Except the ice cream man. Bwahaha!!)

    I love homemade popsicles! I have 3 sets of molds and I do my best to make sure they’re always full. It’s a great way to use up bits of fruit, that last spoonful of jam (mix with milk), sneak in extra calcium, etc. All the kids in the neighborhood have been trained to give back the pieces instead of throwing them away. My go-to recipe is mangoes and coconut milk. And we’ll be trying pineapple and coconut milk soon because I’ve got some not-so-fresh pineapple that we can’t possibly eat in time.

    If Jo-Lynne’s post inspires you to make your own popsicles, I recommend a mold where each popsicle is self-contained like Jo-Lynne’s or Tupperware’s. Getting just one popsicle out of those multi-pack molds is a real pain; and so is cleaning out just that one well to make another popsicle.

      They look great! I like getting our raw honey from local sources, in hopes that it MIGHT help against seasonal allergies (that theory hasn’t really been proven but many believe in it, and it can’t hurt – my daughter has really bad seasonal allergies) but I love how they have so many flavors.

    I will have to try these! Although I will say that I am a sucker for a toasted almond or chocolate eclair a couple times each summer!
