Equipment

  • food processor or high speed blender
  • popsicle molds

Ingredients

  • 2 pints fresh strawberries (about 1 1/2 pounds), hulled and sliced
  • 3 Tablespoons granulated sugar (or more/less depending on sweetness of strawberries)
  • 2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • finely grated zest from half a lemon

Optional Mix-Ins:

  • sliced kiwi
  • carrot-orange juice

Instructions

  • In a bowl, combine sliced strawberries and sugar. Let sit for 10-15 minutes to allow strawberries to expel juice.
  • In a food processor (or blender), combine strawberry-sugar mixture, lemon juice and lemon zest. Process until smooth.
  • Pour strawberry puree into molds with wooden sticks and place in freezer.
  • Freeze for at least 3 hours until popsicle is solid. To remove popsicles from mold, submerge mold into room temperature or slightly warm water for a couple of minutes. Remove from water and pull popsicles out.
  • * If using kiwis, place a couple of sliced kiwis up against the inside of the mold. The kiwi should adhere to the sides. Then pour strawberry puree and freeze.
  • * If adding carrot-orange juice, add after filling mold halfway with strawberry puree. Then freeze as normal.
