My daughter had a birthday recently and she received some Popsicle molds as a gift. Of course as soon as she opened them she wanted to make some popsicles RIGHT NOW! I felt really tired and did not have the energy to make a fancy time-consuming recipe. I’m not sure how I was able to come up with such a simple yet delicious popsicle recipe while feeling exhausted but I nailed it!
These Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles
are so simple and so refreshing.
I grabbed a carton of strawberries out of the fridge, some lemonade mix, some water and my blender. I pulsed the strawberries, 2 Tablespoons of lemonade mix, and the water until the strawberries were chunky then poured them into the popsicle molds. They got popped into the freezer for a few hours and we were enjoying refreshing Strawberry Lemonade Popsicles that evening!
About the Ingredients:
I was completely exhausted that day (as everyday) so I used instant lemonade mix. You could of course, make homemade lemonade from fresh lemons and sweeten to taste for a healthier version. Use your favorite lemonade.
I had fresh strawberries but frozen would also work.
About the Equipment:
So obviously we are making popsicles which will require some type of popsicle mold.
I have a Ninja Master Prep Blender which I love! (In fact it broke last year but the company sent us a brand new one because it comes with a warranty! We experienced great customer service!)
Throwing everything into a blender and giving it a few pulses makes this recipe extremely fast and easy–like less than 2 minutes from start to finish! It doesn’t get any better than that! However, if you want you could just dice the strawberries with a knife and have some larger chunks of strawberries in your popsicles.
What’s your easy go-to dessert?
