Strawberry Popsicles

Jump to Recipe

Popsicles are the perfect summer treat. You don’t have to turn on the oven and heat up the house to make popsicles. Homemade popsicles are the best too! They are easy, fun, and the flavor options are endless. We recently made strawberry popsicles-my all time favorite flavor.

When I was a kid, we used to visit my grandpa’s farm in Idaho every other summer. We loved spending a few weeks on the farm. We got to ride horses, feed the baby cows, chase peacocks, and find chicken eggs every morning. We also loved jumping on my grandpa’s trampoline. We spent hours and hours jumping. It was always hot, but we didn’t care. To cool off, we would eat popsicles. My grandpa had a special freezer for popsicles and ice cream. We consumed more than our fair share of frozen treats, but we were on vacation, so it was allowed:)Β Popsicles always remind me of my grandpa’s farm.

I’ve learned to make popsicles at home , they are so easy! Strawberry popsicles are my favorite. Β All you have to do is puree fresh strawberries with sugar and a little lemon juice. You freeze the mixture in popsicle molds and that is it.

We don’t go to my grandpa’s farm to jump on the trampoline anymore, but I still remember the good old days of popsicles. I still love the cool, sweet, fruity flavor on my lips. Popsicles are one of the joys of summer time.Β If you are looking for a tasty way to cool down this summer try making strawberry popsicles.

Strawberry Popsicles

Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries rinsed and hull removed
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

Instructions

  1. 1. Slice the strawberries and put them into a medium bowl. Add the sugar and stir until all of the strawberries are coated in sugar.
  2. 2. Cover and refrigerate for at least an hour.
  3. 3. Remove strawberries from the refrigerator and put them into a blender of food processor. Add the lemon juice and puree until smooth.
  4. 4. Pour mixture into popsicle molds. Put molds in the freezer until popsicles are frozen, at least 3-4 hours.
  5. 5. When popsicles are frozen, remove from freezer. Let sit out for a few minutes before removing them from the molds. You can also run a little hot water over the molds to help them pop out.
  6. Note-we bought our molds at a dollar store and IKEA. If you want to strain the seeds out before freezing, you can, but they don't bug us:)

  1. How great to have a “granparents’ farm” to go to as a kid. Sounds wonderful.

    Real, fruit-based, ice pops are really becoming popular these days. It’s funny how there are these upscale places trying to sell this stuff when they are so easy to do at home, as this blog post clearly shows.

  2. Maria – I LOVE the new site! It is charming and professional at the same time. And very you. Bravo! We bought one of those fancy schmancy Popsicle makers at Williams Sonoma recently and I have to admit I have been a little lazy about breaking it out. The boys love strawberries so I will have to try this with them.

  3. What fun memories of your Grandpa’s farm and the trampoline and frozen treats! Your popsicles look so delicious, I love that you make them with real fruit. I think the seeds give them character.

  4. I realized today just how much I love the new layout! I loved it last time I was here but it seriously clicked for me this time!

    Those strawberry popsicles sound delicious. My mom always used to make us orange ones!

  5. I just made Popsicles last night for my 2yo – she devoured two this morning and wanted a third! I pureed some mangoes and combined it with some strawberry-banana juice (the kind that has “hidden” carrot juice).

  6. What fun memories of your time at your grandpa’s farm. These popsicles just scream “summer” and I know they would be a big hit with my kids.

  7. Thanks for the recipe. We live in the SW in a VERY hot area and I serve up popsicles as a treat to help keep everybody cool. This was a fun new flavor that the kids really enjoyed!

  8. Mmmmm…..I’m going to have to try these. I love the strawberry fruit bars at the store but these would be so much cheaper and better for you too.
