These strawberry lemonade popsicles are made with real fruit, full of flavor, and super easy to make. It’s sour and fruity and never runs out of flavor like some popsicles, plus they’re cheaper to make than store bought popsicles.
Dominick tried one while I was teaching classes and texted me, “This is the best popsicle I have ever had in my life. I literally said wow at the top of my lungs.” I had yet to taste one at this point, and was very excited to hear his feedback. Then when I got home I tried one, and oh my was he right!
Making popsicles is stupid easy, you basically blend together strawberries, lemon juice, and water. Then you pour them into a mold of your choice and let em’ freeze.
Because our local market had organic juice on sale, I used Santa Cruz’s Organic Strawberry Lemonade instead of water. This gives you even more flavor, but isn’t necessary.
If you have leftover strawberries that need to be used up before they go bad, making popsicles is the perfect way to preserve these delicate fruits.
I bought my popsicle molds at T.J Maxx, they were $5 and totally worth it. They have them at Target, Walmart, The Dollar Tree, and Bed Bath & Beyond. Most of them were either too expensive, or too cheap and had bad reviews. You never know what you’ll find at T.J Maxx, but they usually have a good discount on the more expensive but quality molds. And of course Amazon has a great selection as well.
I also bought Zipsicles which are basically ice pop molds, a pack of 36 was $6.99, and brought me right back to my childhood.
I’ll definitely be making more popsicles all year round. I’ve already made mango lemonade and jackfruit piña colada, both of them are just as good, I can’t pick a favorite.
