Ahhh summer. Fresh strawberries are ready!
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
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
