Homemade Strawberry Popsicles

strawberry popsicles

Strawberries are back in season.  Luckily for us on the West Coast and close to Oxnard, the Strawberry growing mecca, there is only a very short period of time that we don’t have strawberries at the farmers market. And now that it’s heating up it’s time to make strawberry popsicles from scratch. Who needs all those additives when in less then 10 minutes you can have all natural (hopefully organic) homemade strawberry popsicles ready to place in the freezer! All you need are three ingredients: strawberries, a sweetener and a smidge of lemon juice.

Get some yummy, organic strawberries and hull and half them. I decided to blend two cups until smooth and one cup was blended until there were a few strawberry chunks then I combined them.  I love getting a little piece of strawberry in my popsicle but if you prefer it smooth then just blend them all together until pureed.

I also decided on organic agave syrup for my sweetener but you could also use honey or sugar.  My daughter prefers when I make them with sugar but since this is my recipe I’m using agave!

    So great to meet you last weekend, Karen! These popsicles look like the perfect treat for hot weather. We’re in the mid-eighties this weekend, so a strawberry popsicle is sounding really good right now. Awesome post!

    This inspired me (along with a package of strawberry-lemonade Italian ices purchased from the store on a whim). I can’t eat fresh strawberries due to an oral cavity reaction.

    We had u-picked some local strawberries Saturday so I capped and halved approximately six cups of berries, pureed, and put on the stovetop to cook so I could eat my frozen treats. I added a cup of lemon juice (from a bottle) and a cup of sugar based on comparisons of some online strawberry lemonade recipes.

    Next time, based off pre-freeze sampling, I think I’ll do it in the crockpot and maybe drop the lemon and sugar to 3/4 cup.

    Thanks for the sharing this fabulousness!

      Thanks for sharing Jessica. So you can have strawberries as long as they are cooked a bit? So interesting! Re: the recipe, yes I would cut the sugar and lemon juice down per my recipe, unless you were going for a more strawberry-lemonade flavor. But still reduce your sweetener. 🙂
