Nothing tastes more like summer than a popsicle. Unless it’s lemonade. Or fresh-picked strawberries. I’ve combined all three into one perfect, refreshing, and summer-like recipe that has been a huge hit in my house this month, Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles. We eat them on the front porch, bare feet in the grass while they drip down our elbows. It couldn’t taste any more like summer.
Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles
Here’s what you’ll need:
1 1/2 cups lemon juice
1 1/2 cups sugar
8 cups water
1 1/2 cups strawberries, pureed
The kids and I juiced a couple of lemons and removed the seeds. (Of course you could use lemon juice from a bottle.) Then we combined the lemon juice with water and sugar in a pitcher. Stir until the sugar is dissolved completely. Add your pureed strawberries, and mix again.
You can stop now and drink, if you want. I heart strawberry lemonade plain or as a lovely evening cocktail. But it’s also very fun to pour into a popsicle mold and pop them in the freezer. Wait at least 5 hours until the pops are fully frozen, but then share them with your friends and taste the summer.
Bare feet are not required.
What’s your favorite popsicle flavor? Dreamsicles (orange with cream in the middle) are a weakness of mine.
