I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve gone to the grocery store for a few specific ingredients to make dinner, and have left with $50 in random groceries and one missing ingredient for the aforementioned recipe. Last night it was the marinara sauce. The sneaky little marinara sauce. The very thing that makes up 75% of the recipe (smooth one slick). I had big plans to make cute little Italian casseroles, a bowl of watermelon, topped off with a strawberry lemonade smoothie. But when I got home to find no marinara sauce and a carton of strawberries crushed by a watermelon (it was in the trunk), I opted for Cheerios and called it a night. How’s that for adulthood?
That story really has nothing to do with these popsicles, so I’m not even going to try and tie the two together. But guys. Popsicles. Do I even need to say more?
Okay fine, I’ll say more. These popsicles are made from the strawberry raspberry smoothie base that I shared last week and are literally one of the easiest things to whip up. I used to think popsicles were hard to make, but ever since getting a magic bullet a few years back, that myth has been busted. I can now blend anything super smooth, throw it in a popsicle mold, and freeze away.
Made with frozen strawberries, fresh lemon juice, and yogurt – these strawberry lemonade popsicles are the perfect mix of sweet and tart.
I just have a cheap plastic popsicle maker, but these will work in just about any standard popsicle maker. I haven’t broken down and gotten a Zoku yet, but I sense it coming one of these days, because waiting 4+ hours for these to freeze is an eternity and a half.
Gosh, remind me not to write a popsicle post at 6 in the morning. All I want is popsicles and all I have is zero popsicles at the moment. Bummer-ama.
Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles
Made with frozen strawberries, fresh lemon juice, and yogurt - these strawberry lemonade popsicles are the perfect mix of sweet and tart.
- 10 whole frozen strawberries
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice usually about 1 whole lemon
- 3 teaspoons sugar
- 6 oz. light strawberry yogurt raspberry also tastes great
In a blender, add all the ingredients and process until smooth. Pour into popsicle maker glass and freeze as directed.
Have a favorite popsicle recipe? I grew up on pudding pops, so I’m thinking those will be in order soon. Because nothing represents adulthood more than cereal for dinner and pudding pops.
