Fabulously refreshing homemade Strawberry Popsicles are always welcome on a warm and sunny day!
All of you moms and dads out there know how important an afternoon snack is, especially when kids get peckish on a warm summer afternoon. These homemade STRAWBERRY POPSICLES are the perfect wholesome treat to tide little kids over until dinner. Better still, big kids love ’em too!
Here’s what I’ve learned making them over the years:
Try to make these wonderful treats using fresh, locally grown fruit whenever possible. Doing so will boost that all-important natural STRAWBERRY flavour. We brighten that flavour using LEMONS, but you can use LIMES too! Both citrus give these popsicles and zippy, tangy taste.
Because there’s a variance in the sweetness of ripe strawberries, always start with just a fraction of the AGAVE NECTAR and continue adding more until it tastes just right for you.
You should be able to find popsicle molds at grocery, department and dollar stores. I’ve also provided a link to purchase below. Failing that, you can always take this recipe old-school if you’re in a pinch. Remember? Paper cups and popsicle sticks will work too!
Last thing is just a comment about all the possibilities. Feel free to substitute the strawberries with raspberries, blueberries or blackberries, maintaining the 2 cup quantity for each.
