Popsicle season is here! As if we needed a season. These homemade popsicles are refreshing and have less sugar than store-bought pops. With my only getting more pregnant and the summer only getting warmer, these will not be the last popsicles that I post this summer.
Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles
Makes 12 popsicles
6 cups water
1/2 cup sugar
2 cups lemon juice with pulp (the more the better)
8-10 very ripe strawberries, chopped finely
In a saucepan, heat 1 cup water to a boil. Stir in sugar and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat, then place into refrigerator to cool completely.
Add remaining water to a large pitcher, then add sugar water (simple syrup), lemon juice and pulp, and strawberries. Allow to sit in refrigerator for 30 minutes.
Spoon strawberries evenly into popsicle molds, then fill with lemonade. Place tops on molds and place in freezer. When frozen, remove popsicles from molds by running them under warm water.
