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!!)
