It is a sweet summer treat and soooo super easy.
Yesterday I found we had a big batch of strawberries end up in a super cold spot of the refrigerator and they partially froze. Partially frozen strawberries become very soggy squishy strawberries. We had to act fast to re-purpose them.
Into the blender they went. Now what? The kids weren't hungry for smoothies, so on to plan B: popsicles.
Along with the strawberries I added just enough orange juice to get everything blending along. Then into popsicle molds and into the freezer they went.
And today they came out of the freezer...
I have a lot of different popsicle molds. These ones are vintage Tupperware, if you're curious. :)
And they were a very big hit with the whole crowd.
Summer yum! We often use watermelon and a splash of orange juice for popsicles, too. I like that they come out as bright and shiny and pretty as the boxed varieties, but are so healthy there is no reason to say no when your child asks to have another one (or two). We go through a LOT of popsicles in the summertime. ;-)
What are some of your favorite popsicle blends?
