Let’s talk real talk for a minute.
And while I LOVE looking at them, admiring them, and even dreaming of eating them, they are not going to happen at my house. My husband isn’t very popsicle-ey, and my son is only 7, meaning he has no appreciation for the finer things in life.
His lunch of choice these days? A cup of instant macaronis shaped like Spongebob.
I am all about Kraft macaroni, but this instant stuff has this white powder that coats the pasta and serves as a thickener…I don’t even wanna talk about it.
Anyways, popsicles around here are simple and CHEAP. But as someone who grew up on grape Kool-Aid popsicles, I will say that these are a step up, fo sheez.
I used THIS popsicle mold and I LOVE it. Perfect size, and the handle has a drip guard to catch the mess.
These popsicles are the perfect combination of tart and sweet, and can be mixed up in minutes. You and the kidlets will love them!!
All you need is: Sweetened Lemonade Powder (I used Country Time), water, frozen strawberries in sugar syrup (thawed), a popsicle mold, and a blender. I use THIS blender for small projects like this. It’s less clean up, does a great job, and is easier than hauling out the big guns.
These are easy enough that you can have some on hand all week long.
Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles
- Sweetened lemonade powder (I used Country Time) — Enough for one quart of lemonade
- 1/2 quart of water
- 8 oz (1/2 of a 16 oz container) frozen strawberries in sugar syrup, thawed and blended smooth
1. Mix lemonade powder and water in a pitcher until fully dissolved. Add strawberry puree and mix thoroughly.
2. Pour into popsicle molds, leaving about half an inch at the top for expansion. Let freeze for at least 4 hours.
Makes 6 popsicles in this mold.
