Ingredients

  • 1 pound strawberries
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 4 tablespoons fresh lemon juice about the juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/2 cup cane sugar
  • pinch salt

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a blender and puree until smooth, about 3 minutes.
  • Pour into popsicle molds, small paper cups or ice cube trays and freeze.

Notes

  • Ripe or slightly overripe strawberries work perfectly in this recipe
  • Rotten or moldy strawberries should not be used
  • Pinch of salt makes puree smoother so it's not like a giant ice cube
  • The faster the mixture freezes the smoother the popsicles will be
  • The juice from one lemon is about 4 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
  • Cane sugar helps sweeten the popsicles without making them too sweet, it can be substituted for granulated sugar if necessary
  • A banana can be added but the number of strawberries used should be reduced in volume equal to the banana. Keep a higher ratio of strawberries than bananas to make a strawberry banana popsicle.
  • The amount of strawberries can be decreased slightly and replaced by other fruit like blueberries, mango, or pineapple.
  • Run bottom of popsicles under hot water to help remove them from holders without pulling handle out of popsicles
