I figured it was about time I shared these popsicles with you.
It feels like forever ago that I made them and I am SO sorry they are just getting posted now.
Now that we are in the heat of summer, with long hot days (getting shorter by the day though ). The time that I can post these is dwindling down. So it’s high time to make some popsicles and enjoy these dog days of summer until summer is no more. Which for me, will be sooner than the rest of you, but I am just not going to focus on that today (but umm, fall is really my favorite, so it’s OK). Today I pretty much just want to tell you to add some of your favorite strawberry juice and a bucket full of fresh summer strawberries to a blender and purée the heck out of it. Then you could grab a bowl full of vanilla ice cream and drown it in strawberry purée (I should have done that!) or do as I did and freeze the purée into popsicles.
Doesn’t get any easier right? All you need is some good juice, some fresh strawberries and like five minutes of your time. My only little note on this recipe is the juice. I would use a blended strawberry juice. I used Strawberry Apple Coconut from Pressed Juicery, but whatever your favorite is will work great too! You could even go crazy and try a pineapple juice, but keep the fresh strawberries – or whatever combo you are feeling that day. Have fun with it!

- Spray two popsicles molds lightly with olive oil spray.
- Add the strawberry apple coconut juice and strawberries to a blender. Blend until mostly smooth or completely smooth if you do not want any chunks of strawberries.
- Pour the mixture among the molds. You will only fill up 2-4 popsicles on the second mold.
- Place the molds in the freezer and freeze until firm, about 4 hours. To remove the popsicles run the mold under hot water for 10 seconds and then pull the popsicles out of the molds.
*I used Pressed Juicery Strawberry Apple Coconut Juice , but any strawberry juice will do. I do recommend you buy a blended strawberry juice to help sweeten things and balance the flavors a bit. Try to find one with no added sugar. Something with bananas, apples, oranges and or coconut would all work.
What are you cookin today?
