Now if I could wrestle some of the Mr.PBandO (you like what I did there… Mr. Peanut Butter and Onion. I didn’t come up with that… a lot of bloggers do it) the only thing he loves as much as chocolate is fresh strawberries.  They have to be fresh.

So for 2 weeks in the beginning of the summer, almost every second day he buys a huge basket of strawberries and eats them all to himself.

Now he’s not completely greedy with them, I mean, come on, it’s not chocolate!  Thankfully he is very picky about the condition of them.  So I get all of his throw a ways.  And he IS picky, so the strawberries I get are just fine.

So what do I make with all these strawberries.  These popsicles!  Super yummy and super easy.

Strawberry Lemonade Pops

(Adapted From http://www.hungrygirlporvida.com/blog/2012/08/03/raspberry-lemonade-ice-pops/)

2 Cups of Strawberries
3 Cups of Water
¾ Cups of Sugar
½ Cup of Fresh lemon Juice (about 3 lemons)

Cut and hull out (remove the centre) of the strawberries.  Puree the strawberries, and then strain through a fine mesh sieve.

Heat 1 cup of the water and the sugar in a small sauce pan, until the sugar is dissolved.

In a medium bowl mix water/sugar, the remaining 2 cups of water, pureed strawberries and lemon juice.

Pour into molds, and freeze overnight, it makes about 12 popsicles

    Nice combo. I imagine the lemon keeps them from getting “too” sweet. GREG
