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!!)
