I don't know about you, but the summer is heating up my household and with an energetic little brother at home.. it's hard to keep him occupied.. That is, until you pull this out of the freezer! Strawberries season is coming to an end pretty soon, so let's make use of those delicious berries and turn them into scrumptious popsicles!

Step 1: You will need..

For the strawberry lemonade you will need:

  • 2 cups of pureed OR just 4 cups of wholesome strawberries
  • 1 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar (or some kind of sweetener)
  • 4 cups of water

To make the popsicles you will need:

  • popsicle molds OR
  • ice cube tray and popsicle sticks

OPTIONAL:

  • blender

Just to let you know, you can use less of an ingredient if it suits your taste. I opted for 1/2 a cup of sugar just because I love the tangy taste of lemon - but if you like it sweet 1-1/2 cups of sugar should be just fine!

Step 2: Blend 'em!

If your strawberries are not already pureed: put the sugar, whole strawberries and lemon juice in a blender and pulse. When it looks like pureed enough for you, add the water in and pulse to blend. If you blend too much, the strawberries will be liquified -- which may be desirable for you :)

If your strawberries are already pureed, you can just put all the ingredients into the blender and mix thoroughly.

Note: If you don't have a blender, don't fret! You can always just cut the strawberries into smaller pieces and then mash with a fork before dissolving the sugar in it then lemon juice and water. It may also separate like in the photo, but no worries -- it still tastes wonderful!

I think I'm going to try this, but that seems like a lot of sugar to me.

It does, doesn't it? You can always substitute the sugar for honey and other sweeteners, or simply just add the sugar to your liking. Keep in mind, that even with the sugar, it is still a lot healthier than most sodas and juices that you may otherwise purchase as a supermarket :) I do hope you try this and tell me how it worked out for you!
